Ashton’s President’s Prattle for July 2024

Well, there’s no doubting it is certainly winter! And that’s from someone freshly back from the Old Dart, so it really can’t be good.

However, it gives plenty of time to spend in the garage, or reading this new edition of Chunky’s, courtesy of a combined effort by Seth and Tom – thank you both!
