Yes the breakers is still there but the old Austin has long gone, I think it eventually fell off the pole. It has now been replaced with a smashed dune buggy thing. I drive past it every day on the way to work.

The date for this years AGM is the 9th October at the Sun Hotel Hitchin 10.30 for 11.00 start
