Monday 14th May: Evening Visit: Visit to The Hovercraft Museum. 

The museum is based at H.M.S Daedalus, Lee-on-the-Solent. The collection comprises about 45/50 machines from the very large cross channel ones to the small single person racing machines. Some of them saw military service and there is one that starred in a James Bond film.
There will be on site secure parking available for us and the evening will include light refreshments in the form of tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits. Much of the site is under cover and you will have the opportunity to go on to the craft to look around. We are expected to arrive from 6.30pm to 7.0pm when there will be a conducted tour by one of the volunteers who helps to run the museum. We have the museum to ourselves until around 9.00pm.

The museum is located at Daedalus Site Seafront Gate, Marine Parade West, Lee-on-the-Solent, PO13 9NS 


Monday 4th June: Dunford Trophy Run: 

We meet in the public car park, before the Waitrose car park in Romsey, at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.  The run to the pub will be approximately 28 miles, where food is available, followed by a general knowledge quiz, which will decide the winner.


Monday 2nd July: Pub Run: 

July’s pub run is to the Fox & Hounds / the Lone Barn. Tucked away in a secluded corner of Hampshire countryside in Hungerford Bottom, Old Bursledon, the Fox & Hounds pub is a very old pub that dates back to the 16th century. Next door to the main pub building, there is the historic Lone Barn pub restaurant, located in an old renovated barn house dating from 1871 that was carefully relocated, brick by brick, from Winchester in 1974.
