    Hi all. It is with considerable regret that I have had to ask Geoff (editor) to remove the Peak District Meet from the list of regular venues in Pitstop. Due to dwindling attendance over the last twelve months the numbers have fallen below what is viable to justify inclusion. My thanks to everyone who has visited Sheldon over the last approx 15 years, there have been many enjoyable, and sometimes less so in winter, moments. Best wishes David.

    Sad to read your post, David.
    Though not a short journey for us we were always made welcome and enjoyed the company and lunch at the Cock and Pullet in addition to being grateful for the fire after braving the hills in driving rain, sleet or snow!
    Thank you for co-ordinating this meet for what has been quite a few years.
    Regards John and Evelyn

    Hi John. Thanks for your kind comments, will no doubt catch up with you at other events. Every thing has a finite life-span. Regards David

    Many thanks for hosting this meet for all these years. Perhaps we could meet up occasionally, perhaps in the Spring?

    Total appreciation and thanks too from Liz and I, there have been many memorable times at Sheldon.

    Personally, I worry when people start talking about finite life spans !

    Cheers DS from DC+1

    Have you thought about trying to extend the invite to other similar vehicles, kit or classic cars in general. I’ve done this here in Bucks and got a reasonable turnout for meets with some 10-30+ showing up at an all marques meet. Happy to PM you the details, maybe you could even piggy back off the systems we have in place already if you really want to continue to do something.

    Thanks David, a very good suggestion and with the right sort of circulation would be a winner. Maybe something to consider when we get past Christmas. Appreciate the input. Regards DS
