To mark this milestone in the company's history - Redbay plans to host a number of events this year and two have just been announced:

Saturday afternoon February 25th - Workshop tours, official opening of its new mega-shed etc (hopefully a blast in the new Corryveckan 1250)

Saturday May 27th - 40 Redbay Ribs to Ardbeg for lunch - all Redbay Ribs on the mainland and islands will be especially welcome - what about it Mick

More later

It is Matthew it happens every year but this year Tom wants 40 redbays to celebrate the fortieth anniversary. If you have a redbay and can manage it will be a great day.
