A Car Project for Children and those young at heart

Being mindful of the fact that children in the U.K. and other countries are having to stay at home due to the coronavirus crisis, I thought about what CSI could do. Today we received an email from ‘Auto Royale‘ who had obviously been thinking along similar lines. They had produced a plan of a car that could be cut out …

Retro Warwick 2017 Post

This was my third consecutive Retro Warwick event. I am tempted to say that it was the best one yet but in reality they have all been good.
