Sorry, I can't help but there is a South West Capri Club page on Facebook. It might be worth asking for recommendations on there.

Any particular area of Somerset, as it's quite a big county??

I was born about 10 miles from Bath and lived there until 1995.

Oh great Motorcare looks good - Have you used them before ? Meet up sounds great. 1986! I was 8yrs old. We’ve just had our first child - trying to convince the wife that the Focus RS can be the everyday family car...

Not used Motorcare I just found them via Google, but sounds like they could do your work and any future issues :cool:

Keep your eye on the events section around March 2021 for meets.

Congratulations, I don't see why the RS wouldn't work with a baby :? Nice cars, I've only had 2 Focus STs on 06 and 07 reg :drive:

:goodluck:
