Alex Moulton Memorial Birthday Weekend ~ April 8th/9th 2017

The Moulton Bicycle Club would like to welcome members to the Courtyard at The Hall, Bradford on Avon in April to remember Alex Moulton at this, the anniversary of his birthday, and enable members to have a springtime gathering, including a Bring and Buy sale, refreshments, a raffle and rides.

Important Notes:

a) This is a Club members only event.

b) There is No Camping available on the grounds for this event (unlike the September event).

c) The Bring and Buy Sale will finish at 12 noon.

d) The site must be vacated by 12:30 on Saturday afternoon.

e) All rubbish must be removed. (We are guests of the Moulton Bicycle Company and the Alex Moulton Charitable Trust).

 

Saturday 8th April - The cost will be £1 to all members whether they are attending and/or selling which will be collected on the gate, this covers members entry and free access to the Bring and Buy Sale.

 

As there is no advance booking, it is essential that you provide proof of your current membership at the gate to gain entry.  All being well, the car parks at Anthony Best Dynamics Factory should be available on a first come, first served basis. Otherwise, you will have to leave your vehicle outside the Hall grounds.

 

The Bring and Buy Sale will be held in the main Courtyard and will include Moulton Preservation, Regalia and The Moulton Bicycle Company.

 

For the first time, we are opening the Bring & Buy for members and traders to come and have a pitch at this April gathering. For those wishing to sell, the price will remain the same as in the September gathering.

Members selling - £5 per pitch.

Traders selling - £10 per pitch.

Note these costs will be in addition to the £1 entry for all. Please remember that you need to bring your own table as these will not be provided. It is one table per seller only.

 

The timing will be 9am for sellers to set up and 9:30am for the start of the Bring and Buy Sale.  It will finish at 12 noon.  There will be a refreshments stand selling teas/coffees and breakfast/cakes.

 

This is a time for socialising so let’s hope the weather will be on our side.  Arthur Smith will be leading a memorial ride taking you to the sites relevant to Alex Moulton’s life. This will start at 2pm from the factory gates.

 

On Sunday 9th April, Arthur has kindly offered to lead a longer ride of approximately 23 miles. This will leave at 10am from St Margaret’s car park in town.

 

 

Opening the doors to selling at this April gathering,  provides an extra opportunity to find necessary parts to preserve or keep your bikes running smoothly, so you can enjoy your riding in the warmer months ahead and be ready for the September gathering. Look forward to seeing you there!
