Thursday 7 December Coffee Run For the last Coffee Run of the year we will venture out to ArtRocks Estate at 199 Teesdale – Inverleigh Road, Inverleigh. Ade and Bronte Loe are looking forward to seeing some old cars turning up. There will be tea, coffee, cakes and scones available to buy. For those travelling from Geelong, meet at the Fyansford Carpark ready to leave at 9.30am, to be at the venue at 10am. It should be an interesting visit and hopefully the weather will be kind. There will be no Coffee Run in January 2024. Thanks for supporting the Coffee Runs during the year and a Merry Christmas to all. Cheers from the Coffee Co-ordinator.
