Default September Mini-Meet (Matlock, Derbyshire)

Sunday 13th September.

11:00am - Meet up and Critch Tramway Village

I'm told that the "top of the car park (past the Admissions building) should be cordoned off" for us so that we can all park together.

If you arrive later than 11:00 (and we've already gone inside) just explain to the admissions desk that you're with the "A8 and S8 UK Owners Group" so that you get the group discount. If they ask for a password, it's 'Quattro'.

https://www.tramway.co.uk

Info from Critch:
Quote:
On arrival, please pay at the admissions desk. We accept cash, debit or credit card (except American Express).

You will need to book a timed tram ride ticket on arrival and face coverings should be worn for tram rides unless under 11 years or exempt (same guidelines as for public transport).

Please read the attached Crich Tramway Village Covid-19 Guidelines prior to visiting.
(File is attached to this post).

Face coverings are required in all the indoor areas.

We suggest allowing 3 - 4 hours for your visit.

Group Admission prices (based on a minimum of 10 people) for 2020 are:
Adults & Seniors: £11.50
Less Abled: £11:50
Child (aged 4-15): 8:00
Carers: One per person admitted free of charge
Children under 4 years admitted free of charge.

4.30pm - Leave Critch for a scenic drive to Biggin Hall


6.00pm - Evening Meal at Biggin Hall


https://www.bigginhall.co.uk/restaurant.html

We will be dining in the library (recently converted into a dining area), which has been reserved exclusively for our group. There should be sufficient tables for us all to dine together while maintaining sufficient social distancing between different 'households'.

It would be great to see you both there, Jim

I'm going to make enquiries about a group booking if there's enough interest.

Default I'll be there!

Looking forward to this - a great chance to catch up and have an overdue opportunity to chew the fat and talk some car bollocks .

Is it worth starting an attendee list? If so, I'm a definite

Probably, if only to know whether we qualify for Crich's group discount (which requires 10 or more people I believe).


Shall I start?

Think we could be "possibles" to attend, depends on some other "stuff". Any idea of start and finish times Mark?

Not really decided yet, Brian, so open to suggestions ..

But I'm thinking maybe meet around 11am at Critch, spend a few hours there (inc lunch), then maybe late afternoon (for anyone who wants to stay a little longer) we could take a scenic drive/convoy to a nice eatery somewhere for dinner (Biggin Hall perhaps?).
