Red Rose Bulletin - June 2019


Hello everyone. I am sure everyone who attended May's meeting will have missed us but normal service will be resuming for the 9th of June meeting with a bumper option of events including a morning run and breakfast, The Red Rose meeting and a post meeting run to the Salt Works Vintage Festival – full details are below.

Many thanks to everyone who attended last month's meeting and also a big thank you to David and Tracie Bailey for organising the post meeting run to Grapenhall Walled Gardens.

If you haven't already done so check out the Red Rose events list and if there is anything you fancy or if you need more details drop Jonathan and Caroline an email at

Red Rose meeting Super Sunday 9th June

June's Red Rose meeting includes three options for you to make the most of you TR.

The day kicks off with the option of attending the Big Boys Breakfast Run from Antrobus Village Hall. The event includes breakfast between 8 and 10am with cars departing at 10 for a circa 50 mile run through Cheshire returning to Antrobus Village Hall for 1 where you can stay on for concourse judging and awards OR jump back in the car for a short run of a couple of miles and join us at The Cock at Budworth meeting where there will be the usual banter and updates of all the forthcoming events over the next couple of months and, for those who attended the May Gawsworth event, the draw for two free theatre tickets at Gawsworth. We will be leaving the Cock at Budworth around 2:15 and driving the short distance to the Lion Salt Works Vintage festival where Keith Nuttall has kindly arranged dedicated parking for up to 12 cars. If you haven't been to the Salt Works museum Vintage Festival before it is well worth a visit with steam engines on display plus music, barbeque and other attractions along with the opportunity to go on the guided tour of the salt works. Last year's event was a great success with around 18 Red Rose cars attending filling the allocated car parking spaces and over spilling into the car park - Why not join us for one or all of the three events.

Pre registration for the Big Boys Breakfast is required together with entry fee of £12 for the car and driver. Entry forms are available on Red Rose Facebook page or email Jonathan / Caroline at before Saturday 1st June.

Red Rose meeting at the Cock at Budworth will be starting from mid day with anyone joining from the Big Boys Breakfast arriving at 1pm.

Entry to the Salt Works Vintage Festival is free with pre allocated car parking on a first come first served basis. Details of the entry fee for guided tours to the salt museum are available on the museum web site

Tatton Park classic and performance car show , 1st – 2nd June

Red Rose group will again be attending June Tatton Classic car show and hopefully repeating last year's award for best stand. All the spaces have now been allocated and we are looking forward to seeing everyone who has booked on.

2nd to 8th June Red Rose Isle of White week

Ten Red Rose cars will be setting off on Sunday 2nd June for the Red Rose trip to the Isle of White which has been expertly organised by John and Jane Leleu. Keep an eye out next week on the Red Rose Facebook page for photos and updates of our trip.

22nd June - Bunbury Village Day

Red Rose have been invited to attend this year's Bunbury Village Day where our cars will be taking part in the village parade from 12 mid day and enjoying the afternoons events. We still have a few places left and would be particularly interested in anyone who has a TR4, 5 or 8 in joining us as ideally we would like to have a car representing each of the TR range on display. Whatever you're TR if you are interested in joining us on what promises to be a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon email Jonathan and Caroline at for more details.

Car Fest Bolesworth Castle, Cheshire, 26th – 28th July 2019
