Sunday 15th July
Very informal family and friends get together on the North Norfolk Coast at West Runton . Its a very informal affair intended to bring everyone together in a relaxed way, although you can bring a radio or two and how about someone volunteering to prepare a 'just for fun' radio related quiz?The nearby cafe will serve all kinds of food and drinks at modest prices or you can bring a picnic plus as usual MAC will be there and I will bring my gas Bar B Q for your own sausages and burgers. Hope to see lots of you there again - check out the gallery for pictures of the fun at previous events.
Brochure with map coming soon.....
