Hatton has many  shops including Brantano, Edinburgh Mills, women's clothes and jewellery shops plus an old fashioned sweet shop.
It has a restaurant(which will serve breakfasts)and a café  all of which is adjacent to the site.There is no entry fee to this area.
The site will be open from mid day on Thurday 3rd September. the costs will be as follows--
Rally entry fee will be £6 per car and will include a rally pack.
Camping will be £12 per unit per night irrespective of whether camping, caravan or motor-home.(same costs as last year)
Auto-jumble stands will be £10 per pitch
To help those with a few parts to sell, we will be offering a service of up to 4 items to be left(at the owners risk) at the control tent for our communal auto jumble, with a 10% commission.
There are no electric hook ups or showers but we have hired a luxury toilet trailer situated in the camping area to supplement the main toilet block which is adjacent to the field.
The main activities during the rally will be as follows.
THURSDAY. An evening get together in the control tent. with a few beers.

That evening there will be live entertainment in the main marque with beer and wine (and maybe a little food) there will also be the the raffle.
SUNDAY. The main display day with presentations at 3pm. There will be  hot "fast food" available on the rally field.
This years rally is organised by the members of the Frisky register and we are attempting a world record (held at 13) for the most Friskies attending a rally.Each Frisky will receive a commemorative plaque to mark  this attempt.So if you have a Frisky whether it is running, a basket case or even part of one bring it along and join the party.

Looking at the possibility of getting two cars driving up, as Andrew is interested. Not that the Bianchina is proving at all co operative at the moment. I would hope to get a Schmitt running. Root was muttering about going with his field based car. SAdly Roger is ill, Tony under starters orders and others not been talked to as a lot to do here. But on that basis there could be a trip up with two running cars from Oxfordshire should anyone fancy it.

Talking to Nick H last night he confirmed the run on Friday was ready. It is to be a slightly devious route ending at Coventry Transport Museum, as instructed. The Museum has arranged for parking outside, as they do with warning. I forget now whether he said it was 21, or 27 miles. Either way just a trot in the country, rather than plunging straight into some rather busy roads. So every reason to be there Friday.

Saturday's run is as stated above, as far as I know. Taking in the Stratty part of the area and Charlecote. Somewhat as was done all those years ago, when the event was based near Bidford. As I recall the run included a treasure hunt, I remember looking for a clue around the Stour villages in my Goggo. In the event I visited Ron Barnacle and viewed the Aurora - went to the Hammonds till recently, Goggo - sat not 12 mlies from me now in the same condition I originally saw it, next to said Aurora, likewise post Hammond, and an Isetta and Hienkel from memory, their whereabouts I do not know. All the lost Goggo parts have been collected together again thanks to the Barnacle family. 

Be nice to find a similar stash while circulating some 30 years later!

I have just finished the Saturday run to Stratford-upon-Avon. Stratford council have agreed to cordoned off area for our cars next to the river so we can enjoy a lunch break at an adjacent cafe. The route takes in pretty Henley in Arden (with its home made ice cream shop),
Wooton Hall, Mary Arden's house (Shakespeare's mother), Anne Hathaway's cottage (his wife), Stratford and Charlcote Manor.
Come and join us!

The Friday run is 44 miles and returns back via Kenilworth castle. The Saturday run is just over 50 miles.Plenty of time to stop on route and enjoy the sights.

Ah, I was only told about the outward element and assumed there was a race home. Kenilworth, break out your Sir Walter Scott. My trip would replicate the one in the book as part of the plot is in The Vale.
