Red Rose Bulletin - April 2018


8th April Meeting at The Antrobus Arms and run to Anson Engine Museum

After what feels like a long wait we will be back at The Antrobus Arms for the 8th April meeting. The meeting will be starting at 12 prompt and we will be departing on our first Sunday run of the year at 1pm to the Anson Engine Museum in Poynton, Cheshire which has been kindly organised by John and Anne Thorpe. Please come along and join us to check out the new Antrobus Arms and take part in our first run of the year.


TR Register members are invited to join Red Rose Group on this year's Drive It Day Run to the Crich Tramway Village on Sunday 22nd April 2018.

The museum contains over 60 trams built between 1900 and 1930 and is set within a period village containing a pub, cafe, old-style sweetshop and tram depots and workshops. Cars will benefit from a dedicated display area within the village and old pennies will be provided on arrival as payment for tram rides through the village into the local countryside and back.

There will be a return run back through to the Peak District with the option of joining us for a Sunday Roast at The Nights Table Flash SK17 0SN. Pre booking for the meal as required as numbers are limited

For full details or to confirm your place email Jonathan / Caroline at or check out the post on Red Rose Group Facebook page.


We were back at The Hazel Pear for our March meeting with an excellent turnout for the return of the photograph competition, although I think it may have been warmer outside than it was in the room! The results were as follows. In 1st place was David and Tracie Bailey, 2nd was Mike and Carole Biddulph and in 3rd place it was Hamish Roscoe and Suzy Kelly. The top thirteen photos are now available to view on Facebook.

We have lots of events planned, with a very full calendar, including Drive it Day, TR Fest, Autumn leaves, runs after the monthly Sunday meets, all the regular events and some new events plus the return of the Thursday runs. There will be more details of all our runs and events on the Red Rose Facebook page and The TR Register Red Rose website.
