A talk by Peter Ingram

Please note this talk is not arranged by the Double LL club.

A talk by Peter Ingram, at The Triangle Centre in Liss on 11th April 2018 at 7.30pm for 8pm start.
The talk will be about Peter’s reminiscences (with a few gypsy songs thrown in), Peter who set up the Romany museum in Selborne, was a well-known builder, restorer and painter of living vans from his teens until his recent retirement, and he is a great character and entertainer. The talk has been put on for the Self Sufficiency group in Liss but it has been offered to Double  “LL” Club members to come along and join the evening as visitors.
For anyone wanting to join them then visitors pay £3 but that includes refreshments. If they need more information, it will eventually appear in their website

David Smiths Funeral

David Smith

It is with regret that I have to write of the sad passing of David who has been a loyal Member of the Double LL Club for many years now, Val and myself first met David and Rose at a Rally where Rose was trying to stitch the head lining of his beloved Morris 8 owing to a mouse that thought it was a good idea to live in the car, however after a few years the head lining was replaced, the Mouse had gone !! and the car was looking better sporting it’s new look.
David was an old school Mechanic working with cars for many years, also a qualified MOT tester, but owing to failing health he found it hard to maintain the Morris, but his Son-in-law Peter looked after the car for him and David would drive the car to all of the Rally’ s that he could get to and living near Chichester meant David would sometimes have to drive a fair few miles to get to a rally, no mean feat for the car and David, as over the last few years he was finding it more difficult to get around, but he did winning many trophies over the years, at the AGM he always went home with some award.
We will miss his long chats on the rally field where he would get himself around and pass on a few tips to others.
So rest in peace David old friend.

Pendean Fete and BBQ

Thought we would put the write ups on our website to say a thank you to all our members for attending the Peadean Fete and BBQ, pictures also at the end thanks to Derek Leach

From our President, Bob Lintott
The rally season is now under way, Pendean Rally and BBQ went off very well and I would like to thank Bob Elliot and Keith personally for helping me with the cooking. Derek took Val home as I thought that the BBQ had a part missing, turned out it wasn’t, so thanks Derek (you did see some wildlife en-route)
From our Vice Chairman, Derek Leach
Good turn out of collections and nice selection of transport. Sorry did not get a picture of all exhibits batteries ran out!  I missed the folk dance in front of Martins caravanette. The BBQ followed the Fete with forty attending, thanks to Bob & Bob for the cooking and all the other members who helped to set up and get the food and drinks ready.
From our Secretary, Ian Blake
Pendean Fete in the afternoon and the Barbecue in the evening. Because of another commitment Jenny and I could not attend the fete in the afternoon but we were able to attend the barbecue in the evening, Thanks to Derek and his helpers for the organizing and to the two Bobs for the cooking.
