Meet at the swan Basingstoke sun oct 3/10/2010 (Inc photos)

by BazV6er » Sun Sep 05, 2010 9:12 pm

ok guys and this is a brand new venue for the southern meets to be held as today me and tina popped down to the swan at Sherborne ST John nr Basingstoke to check out this new pub for our local meets and it came with all my recommendations for everything:

it has four large areas inside the pub with large tables and chairs ,a non smoking area ,18+ area with comfortable seating with a large pub garden with loads of benches as well as a sheltered area under aluminuim sheltereing for anyone that wants to sit outside under the rain (this may become good for us guys because of how we use car parks to congregate etc and it also has two large car parks with slight speedbumps leading into both of the car parking areas but ive already took my car over to test them and clearance should be fine as long as people drive slower .

Overall its a great pub ,has a really nice landlord who basically welcomed us to his pub and even said that if we come up in large groups anytime to give him a bell and he will organise reserve seating for us but tbh i dont think thats needed.

heres a few pics of some of the areas:

front car park mainly disabled parking

2nd car park with speedbump:

venue is at :

Kiln Road, Sherborne St John, Basingstoke, Hampshire RG24 9HS

And as this is the 1st local meet this year as so far its been a tough year with horrible circumstances and car issues that it will finally be nice to start them up again and see how well they take off:

1) Bazv6er & TigraTink in both cars

This starts from 1pm onwards to whatever time people want to stay until

If I could stop it I would, I know which email is the problem but I can't block it as it doesn't have a full email address so I have printed out all my email address's and deleted them all, so you shouldn't get anymore spram.
