Splittys in West Sussex?

Post by Philpsy » Sun Oct 26, 2014 10:31 am

Just moved to West Sussex (Worthing) and looking for other splitty owners.
I'm a pure novice and determined to get my 66 RHD back on the road.

Who's out there that would be willing to offer advise locally?

Thanks

Richard

Hi Richard,

I'm over in Angmering, there's quite a few of us in the Worthing area.

On a nice day it's well worth doing a little drive along the seafront to Goring Gap. There's usually others out if the Suns out.

Cheers

I am Horsham way, there is a club meet first Saturday of the month, I think about 2-3pm ish at the Hornbrook Pub. (I usually forget, but there was a couple of vans down there last time I went) May pop along this saturday as it is their 5 year anniversary.

But Goring Gap run out sounds good if the weather is nice.

I am guessing that is Marine Drive between Goring & Ferring area???
