Truckshunters are invited to gather, in their usual huge numbers, at Mike and Pauline’s coffee van by the Swirle on the Quayside. Unless it’s not a very nice day - in which case the convocation will retreat to Oliver’s, its usual haunt.
I’ve booked the brass band and a red carpet so don’t let me down...
