Red Rose Bulletin April 2017


Hello again. Spring is definitely on its way with the weather being kind for both the Norton Priory run and the Bentley Motors Tour.

The March meeting was well attended with some new faces. The Norton Priory run, first of the monthly Antrobus runs, was a great success with over 30 members enjoying a guided tour of the Priory and grounds. Thank you to John and Ann Thorp for organising the event.

The Bentley Motors Tour on 24th March was enjoyed by all those who attended and provided an insight into the workings of one of Britain's greatest car manufacturers .

April and May are going to be busy at Red Rose with events on almost every weekend.
