How about a coffee and Natter, on the morning of the 25th August, South Mimms Startbucks Drive through

And I Cannot stress enough that its a MAXIMUM of 2 hours no matter where you are in the services carpark, its a camera on the way in, and one on the way out, staying longer than 2 hours will cost you dearly.....

If I can get an MOT sorted in time then yes.

EDIT: Not going to make this sadly, are you going to do a few more before winter?

We need a new easy to reach location with a cafe in the same area

Good meet up this morning, it was extremely hot even at 10am this morning

Couple of 968’s and a brace of 944’s and a unknown fella in a 996 came and parked with us too

Fun morning

Its a nice easy going meet up but a risk of £60 is no fun... and easily done when your chatting away. Didn't you meet up at Stanbourough lakes a while ago?

I'll have a think about cafes with parking...

There is a cafe near me thats good, free parking and pretty spacious... but... its nearly in Royston so a fair way from South Mimms.

Theres even a green auto 944 going mouldy in the car park of the attached garage to lament over.

well here is a couple of ideas

Junction 22 there is a nice pub that i think does coffee and bacon butties

The Colney Fox

and just a bit further up is Hazeldine Road, there is a Sunday Cafe there called Carmelo's but the best bit is there is a huge free car park behind
