Spring is here - maybe..............

Well, after a rather hard winter, it seems Spring is round the corner. Fortunately, though cold, the weather for the March Gold Cup week was clear and invigorating.

After much research, we have finally found  a new member to join the family. She will be joining us soon -

The November races are nearly upon us.
This is a great weekend and we hope the weather will be equally good.

Greenbelt Festival

Last weekend was the annual Greenbelt Festival. It seemed a great success, even though the weather could have been better. Badger Towers B and B was full with guests participating in the Festival and they kept us up to date with the programme and the effects of the weather.

We do hope that there will be a bit more sunshine next year. However, the weasther conditions do not seem to have effected the participants as a number of them have already rebooked for next year.

Mid Summer Speed Fest.

Had a great weekend with the Mid Summer Speed Fest at the Prescott Hill Climb. Some nice cars  including a guest's  XK140 in front of the house; There were some 30 XKs in Cheltenham this weekend. Luckily the weather was not too bad on the Saturday and after an early rainfall on Sunday morning, the day was pleasant and sunny which helped the track to dry out.

We are looking forward to the Bugatti Owners Club annual Garden Party on July 15th. Last year we took some friends and family up the hill - very exciting and somewhat scary!!

Following the loss of Daphne, our German Shepherd bitch, we have a new addition to the family.
Lola is a four and a half year old German Shepherd and she is settling in well. Bertie, out cat, is not yet too sure about her and currently takes a dim view of this new member of the Sett. He misses Daphne as they were great friends. Hopefully he and Lola will learn to like each other too.
