The North Kent Area meets on the 1st Tuesday of the month at The Pheasant Plucker, Bessels Green Road, Goathurst Common TN14 6BU. You may recognise the address from our previous venue The Woodman, which closed in early 2020. Much to our surprise the large site wasn't redeveloped into des res but was bought by Elite Group, renamed and extensively refurbished. Other Elite pubs you may know are The Chaser at Shipbourne and The Dirty Habit in Hollingbourne.
In the summer months and in good weather you'll find us out in the large garden area or tyre kicking in the car park, otherwise we'll be tucked away in a corner inside. If you haven't been before, look for people wearing L7C merchandise. And beards.
Area Representative Richard Brunero is pleased to welcome all new and potential members, partners are also very welcome, so do come along and introduce yourself.
We can have twenty or more Sevens turn up on a nice summer evening and there is ample space in the pub car park. Some members just turn up for a drink and a natter, most of us also have a meal.
We're a mixed bunch of tourers, competitors, constant fettlers, rebuilders and a few who are more into polishing than busted knuckles and gunk. Whatever your leaning you can be sure of a wealth of knowledge from people who have been there and done it, although you may find yourself having to pick your way through a dozen pointers on how not to do it.
Apart from our regular monthly meetings, we also have many Sunday blats and other events throughout the year. Brands Hatch is a popular destination, being on the doorstep.
Many events for this area and neighbouring areas are organised via the Teamer app, which features email notifications of forthcoming events and enables signing up or declining with a single click.
We also have a North Kent Area - Lotus Seven Club Facebook page.
We look forward to meeting you.
