June Review - What a busy month June has been.


The first day of June dawned bright and sunny for the Tatton car show but I believe hoods were up later in the day. Red Rose did us proud winning three Prizes! Jonathan got car of the day, Peter Marshland won best convertible and the Red Rose stand came third! Well done to all our winners!

2nd – 8th June

On the second of June nine cars took the roads for a trip to The Isle of Wight visiting Beaulieu on the way. Once we had negotiated boarding the ferry and arrived on the island we visited Osborne house and Ventnor Botanical Gardens. We were also very lucky to be given a guided driving tour by the only TR Register member on the island Paul "Pinky" White, Thank you to Pinky and his lovely wife for taking the time to show us things we wouldn't normally have seen.

Back on the mainland we drove through the New Forest and visited Bucklers Hard where we took a boat trip in the sunshine! Then it was on to The British motor museum on our last day.

The holiday was a huge success and everyone had a great time thanks to the sterling efforts of John and Jane Leleu who organised the whole trip. Thanks to both of them for all their hard work.

9th June

The ninth of June meeting was more a day of events, We started off the morning at The Antrobus Village Hall for The Big Boys Breakfast and car run where I think the whole village turned out to enjoy a cooked breakfast and a look at the cars!

Next on the itinerary for the day was our usual monthly meeting followed by a run down to the steam fair at The Lion Salt Works kindly co-ordinated by Keith Nutall

16th June

Five Red Rose cars took part in this year's Peaks and Dales run organised by the Hare and Hounds Classic car club covering around 80 miles and ending with a display at the Pavilion Gardens Buxton.

23rd June

Fifteen cars attended the Budworth Village festival on the 23rd of June, although one car didn't quite manage to make the event and is now looking like a contender for this year's broken spanner award. This was a new event for Red Rose and by all accounts proved to be a great day. Once again thanks to Keith Nutall for organising the event

24th June

Red Rose cars were at Lymm Transport festival on the 23rd June, an event which goes from strength to strength, with Michael Biddulph picking up the prize for best Triumph in his TR4A.

30TH – 31ST June

Red Rose cars ventured north of the border for the last weekend of June attending the Moffat Car Rally. A fabulous event with over 300 classic cars enjoying the Scottish countryside on the Saturday run followed by a static show on the Sunday.

Big thank you to Steve and everyone at the Clyde Valley group who made us very welcome and let us share their gazebo to shelter from the rain on the Sunday.

Well I said it was a busy month. Never let it be said there is nothing going on at Red Rose!
