Okay folks, here is the event thread for AOEM's now annual trip to a Bonfire/Fireworks Display.

Due to having such a great time the last two years, again we are going to a small village in Staffordshire called Draycott in the Clay.
The bonfire is being organised by the North Staffs and Cheshire Traction Engine club at the Klondyke Mill Preservation Centre in the village.

It's a professional pyrotechnic display, set to music with the additional benefit of several engines in steam. There are also refreshments available.

It starts at 19:00 and is 6 to get in. (Really good value for money)
The info from the organisers web site can be found here: Linky

As usual, I propose we park in the nearby pub. I've spoken to the landlord and they are happy for us to have drinks before the show instead of after and then we don't have to pay the deposit.

This is the address for the pub we are planning on parking at:

The Roebuck Inn
Tobys Hill
Draycott in The Clay.
DE6 5BT

Meet at the pub for drinks at 18:00.


After the Fireworks, we plan on popping up the road for a nice warming Indian feast.


Very close to the Klondyke Mill Preservation Centre is this place:

The Barn,
Stubby Lane,
Draycott in The Clay,
ST14 8LC

The meal here last year was very good indeed and well priced.

Based on last year's firework display, I propose that we book the table at the restaurant for 20:30 ~ 21:00.


So, if you want to join, either the fireworks and/or the meal, please do get your RSVPs (with numbers for dinner) in by the 29th October so that I can book a table.

Come on then doooods! Who's up for it eh?

Don't forget folks!
Please state in your RSVP if you want to join both fireworks and curry or only one activity.
Also for those coming for a curry after the fireworks, please indicate how many places you'd like to reserve.

I'm afraid I'll be coming to an AO meet for the first time in a non-Italian vehicle.
But, my bella is hibernating for the winter.

And Lewi, really, you can wipe your feet on the grass after can't you?
