Alas our weather clearly put off participants from our ‘Drive It Day’ event On Sunday 28th April, the bold few drove using back roads with tulip diagram route instructions for the first time to Finchingfield for a pint and natter and a coffee stop at historic Thaxted. Well done those novice navigators.
First of all, join us for a fun run on ‘drive it day’ this Sunday April 28 from Melbourne Village College The Moor SG8 6EF at 11:00 to the Beautiful setting of Finchingfield maybe for lunch, via Thaxted for a coffee option and site seeing. You can test your navigator with a tulip diagram route direction sheet or simply follow a small convoy on the quiet back roads planned.There is no time restriction on this 30 mile fun run. A £5 donation to Cherryhomes Trust is requested, enjoy as the weather looks promising.
On Saturday in glorious sunshine eight of our cars kicked off from Cambourne heading for Jordan’s Mill near Biggleswade, getting our tyres wet in a ford then whetting our whistle in a truly classic pub en route.
The eighty odd mile drive took in Cardington hangers of R100+R101 rigid airship fame and Danish Camp by the Great Ouse river in Willington, then on to our favorite location for dinner The white Swan at Conington.
Thanks go mostly to Chris Flinders and Mary for organising a varied and interesting run.
