Meet up anytime soon?

How do all, new to Alfa ownership, and looking forward to meeting up and having a chat with some of you guys and gals. I take it such meets are mentioned here? Do you have a regular meeting place or do you travel around a bit as EA is quite a large area!

Anyhow look forward to meeting some of you in the near future. BTW in Royston...

I know one that has good real ale and serves good food too. The Red House pub on the A1198 Longstowe. Good in summer with a big garden but also good in winter with a big open fire! I guess the fire option is required at the moment Oh and it has a large car park...

I will investigate this pub and report back - as long as it has a good car park, child friendly and decent food thats all we need

I can.....be very very careful when driving in Norfolk, especially on the back roads as they are full of potholes!!!! Some fantastic driving roads, nice villages and great pubs.

I live about 10 mins away from North Walsham, and about 2 mins from Dilham !
There are always coppers lurking around in North Walsham, so be aware (2/3 undercover cars as well !)
There would be many things to suggest to do in the summer, but everything is a bit dreery at this time of year !
Yarko (great yarmouth!) is an ok place to go on a Sunday evening car wise, most people seem to congregate down the seafront.
Norwich is the best place to go out around here but your looking at at least 35 pounds for a taxi (and thats if you shop about!) to come home ! Or there is North Walsham to go out in (where most of me and my friends go out!) it is a bit of a dive, but its the only place that has any sort of music, and serves til 2-3am !

Erm.... if you have any specific questions, let me know and i'll try my best to answer !!

Take care!

That's the local section of The Alfa Romeo Owners Club isn't it? not Alfaowner.com?
