SAHB AUTUMN SEMINAR
Sunday 7th October 2012
The Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation, The Hunt House, Paulerspury, Northants NN12 7NA
Members who have attended previous seminars at The Hunt House will know of its excellent facilities along with its eclectic collection of Rolls-Royce and Bentley artefacts.
Members and their guests are invited to attend this event and also to partake of the dinner at the Best Western Buckingham Hotel, Buckingham, MK18 1RY on the evening of Saturday 6th October. They may wish to stay overnight and, similar to previous years, accommodation has been reserved at the hotel where a special combination B&B and Saturday evening dinner rate of £75 for a single room and £100 for a double has been agreed. This is a lower figure than last year and represents excellent value for money.
Please book your accommodation and dinner arrangements quoting SAHB10 direct with the Best Western Buckingham Hotel, Buckingham on 01280 822622 or firstname.lastname@example.org before 17th September, after which the 18 reserved rooms cannot be guaranteed.
After the success of the Motoring Literature Fair at last year’s Autumn Seminar we have again arranged that the morning period will be similarly assigned. Philip Hall is arranging the tables.
Setting-up time is from 9.30 am and while tables will be provided, it would help if you could provide your own additional tables if you need more than one. Transport literature and photographs will be offered, so come along and sell, swap or buy within a cordial atmosphere. All we would ask is that you give a minimum of a 10% of takings as a donation to SAHB funds.
Paulerspury is approximately four miles south of Towcester and is signposted from the A5. Buckingham is seven miles south of Paulerspury at the junction of the A413 and A422.
