The quickest way we can update our site is using the googlecalendar. This is shown on the right hand side of the screen and also on the Opening Times/Events Page.

In some systems the links in the calendar are displaying times as GMT. Note that at present we are on BST so you might need to add an hour to the time shown.

Still to come this year; Trial of sales/services at a Car Boot Sale, Regular 1st Saturday Shed Opening for all, Silk Road Festival in Cricklewood, Maintenance Training Workshop.

And don’t forget you can always get in touch for ad-hoc repairs with our mechanics.
