What a fun day! Our first club visit to Martin Lynch’s shop in Chertsey, Surrey.
Six of us made the trip down a frosty, foggy M40 early this morning to enjoy the ML&S open day & hog roast and we were not disappointed! We arrived around 8.30am to find a Car Park space reserved for our Chairman Mike G4VPD. He won’t live that down in a hurry!
We then spent a happy few hours browsing the shop, enjoying a breakfast of unlimited free bacon sandwiches, free drinks and very friendly chat with the ML&S staff.
G5HY from Kenwood(UK) presents Mike G4VPD with our £600 voucher
This was also the day when we were presented with our £600 voucher, won in the ML&S raffle at the National Hamfest in September, to spend in store. Kenwood’s David Wilkins G5HY was on hand to present the voucher, which was very promptly exchanged in part payment for a Kenwood TS-590S!
Needless to say, there were a few other pre-Christmas deals done and Santa obviously came VERY early for all the members who travelled down!
A hot pork lunch and more drinks and soon it was time to leave, but not before we felt we had made a few new friends in the South-East.
Many thanks to Martin, Richard and all the staff and Martin’s family at ML&S. We look forward to seeing you again in the New Year.
