NG National Rally 2006 by Keith  (June 10th, 2006)
This years rally was at Stratford-upon-Avon. Extremely sunny and hot weekend. The campsite field, part of Riverside Caravan Park, was very nice with good facilities, situated next to the river. We, and most NGers, got the river taxi into Stratford for a bit of site seeing. Stratford is a lovely town with loads of old buildings.
The Rally was very relaxed with BBQ's provided for burn ups plus tea and cakes. We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves not just seeing Stratford but more importantly catching up with our friends.
Visit to Exbury Gardens by Keith  (June 10th, 2006)
On the 21st May 2006 we ventured to Exbury Gardens. A little bit rainy but as can be seen in the picture the sun did show itself later in the day.
There was the Rolls Royce club that also has an event and also another club was due to be there but cancelled.
We walked around the 250 acres of Exbury stopping for tea and a ride round the garden on the train.
5 NG's plus one tin top made for a very enjoyable day out.
Visit to Annie's tearoom, Minstead by Keith  (June 10th, 2006)
On 25th Sept 2005 we had our first New Forest and District NG outing. Nice tea and cake served by unusual folk.
Tea sipping was interupted by a quick rush to put the NG hoods up but it stopped directly the hoods were up and we were dripping.
