A Poem fron John Stubbington

Had to share this here with you all from John Stubbington….


I have a little Satnav
It sits there in my car
A Satnav is a driver’s friend
It tells you where you are
I have a little Satnav
I’ve had it all my life
It’s better than the normal ones
My Satnav is my wife

It gives me full instructions
Especially how to drive
“It’s thirty miles an hour”, it says
“You’re doing thirty five”
It tells me when to stop and start
And when to use the brake
And tells me that it’s never ever
Safe to overtake
It tells me when a light is red
And when it goes to green
It seems to know instinctively
Just when to intervene
It lists the vehicles just in front
And all those to the rear
And taking this into account
It specifies my gear.

I’m sure no other driver
Has so helpful a device
For when we leave and lock the car
It still gives its advice
It fills me up with counselling
Each journey’s pretty fraught
So why don’t I exchange it
And get a quieter sort?
Ah well, you see, it cleans the house,
Makes sure I’m properly fed,
It washes all my shirts and things
And – keeps me warm in bed!
Despite all these advantages
And my tendency to scoff,
I do wish that once in a while
I could turn the bugger off.

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



Balls Cross

Here we have a set of pictures taken at Balls Cross back in September, thank you to John Stubbington for sending them in and sorry it has taken me so long to add them to our website!! I was just going through emails and things and just found them, sorry John…

David Smiths Funeral

Davids funeral will be at 12pm on  20th December at Boxgrove Parish Church.

Please pass on to members who are not on the internet.

Many Thanks

David Smith

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.
