We are proposing to have a group Christmas meal at midday on Sunday 3rd December at the Mistley Thorn Hotel CO11 1HE. A menu is available. I need to have some idea of the numbers so if any of you think that you are likely to attend please can you let us know asap, by the end of this week hopefully. We had 15 last year, if we can get 20 or more at this meal we can virtually fill the back room of the Thorn which will make for a more convivial experience, so all are welcome. No ride is planned for December, but if any of you want to ride to Mistley you are welcome to freshen up at our home first, we live just about 1km away.


I have complied a list with the help of some members, that gives details of cycle friendly cafes and tea rooms where we like to stop in our area when we are out riding.   I thought this might be useful if you ever visit this part of the country and wanted to plan a ride in the lovely countryside.


If you are aware of any that we might have missed then please email me with details and I will add them to the list which can be found in the document section at the bottom of the  East London/Essex Region pages.


Hope you find it useful.
