Options for Drive It Day 2020 with MASC – * Please Respond *

by Andrew Parrott


As you may know Drive It Day is on Sunday 26th April and MASC actively supports this with many areas doing a run of some sort.

I’m trying to finalise our plans for Drive It Day and wanted some feedback on the kind of thing you’d like our Northamptonshire Area to do to mark the day.

Time is relatively short so I would appreciate your feedback on this by the end of January please. The options are listed below but I’m open to suggestions for alternatives.

Essentially we need to choose whether we join in on an event organised by a neighbouring MASC Area or do our own thing; to which we can invite others to take part in. Plans for Central, Heart of England and Notts & Derby are being finalised and are outlined below. I’ve listed some ideas of what we could do if we took a ‘home baked’ approach.

Please review the options below and let me know your top two ideas in order of preference. Thanks.

1. Central MASC: Run from The Tame Otter near Tamworth to Weston Park in Staffordshire.
2. Heart of England: Run from Alcester to The Canal Museum at Stoke Bruerne.
3. Notts & Derby: Run to The International Bomber Command Centre near Lincoln. Not sure where they’re starting from but we could arrange to meet them there. A ‘pretty’ route is likely to be about 80 to 90 miles each way.
4. Northamptonshire Option 1: Circular route around our patch taking in a few sights and starting and/or ending at a pub.
5. Northamptonshire Option 2: Hughenden Manor (National Trust) near High Wycombe. Country home of Benjamin Disraeli with a secret role during WWII. About 65 miles each way, £13pp entry, free for NT members.
6. Northamptonshire Option 3: Shuttleworth Collection and Swiss Garden near Biggleswade. About 70 miles each way, £20pp entry for collection and garden.
7. Northamptonshire Option 4: Hook Norton Brewery including a tour. About 40 miles, £15pp including tour.
8. Something else!

Please tell me whether you are able to join us for Drive It Day and, if so, which two of the above options you would prefer or provide some other ideas that you think others in our group would enjoy.

Kind regards
