Red Rose Bulletin - March 2019


Well it's been quite a start to the year, with the early spring sunshine surprising us all – Long may it last!

It's time to do all those jobs you have been putting off in anticipation of a spring that is packed with events for everyone to get out and make the most of their TR.

Drive it Day

We will have exciting news about this year's drive it day at the March meeting with further details being posted on the Red Rose Facebook page and the TR Register website later this month. All we can say at the moment is it is a new destination with a strong nautical theme!

Gawsworth Hall Classic Car Show May 6th

This year we have managed to secure a club stand and ALL TR register members are welcome to join us. All you need to do is email Jonathan/Caroline at with your car model and registration.

The show has long been one of the North West's most popular shows attracting an eclectic mix of classic cars and is a great opener to the season.

February Events meeting

February saw us gather once again for the events meeting with another full house, in fact we had to draft in more chairs! Jonathan chaired the meeting in his usual style with plenty of humour thrown in!

It was a busy meeting with lots to get through including the results of the questionnaire, proposals for Drive it Day and autumn leaves runs plus updates on other forthcoming events. After a bit of arm twisting from Jonathan we have some volunteers for Sunday runs so a big thank you to them but we are still looking for more! If you have a burning desire to organise a run or are willing to lead an existing pre done one then email us at your help would be greatly appreciated.

We also looked ahead to 2020 and are currently checking out dates for TR Fest!

There is now a packed diary of events for 2019 and a copy of all the events for the year is available to view on our Facebook page and also on the TR Register Red Rose website but if there is anything you would like us to add then email us at and If you would like to join us at any of our events or meetings don't hesitate to contact us as we can promise a warm welcome.

Red Rose Photograph Competition – 10th March Meeting

The photo competition and the resulting Red Rose Calendar has been a big success over the last two years and voting for this year's photographs will take place at the 10th March Cock at Budworth meeting.
