New Year Road Run
Sunday 8th Jan
We extend a warm welcome to you to join our post-Christmas road run. Unless there are impassable snowdrifts (6ft or over), we intend to 'patrol' along meandering byways, cheat almost certain death through a shallow ford, and risk sniper fire through an eerie wood. WARNING Anyone attempting this winding course along the high-ways & bi-ways in a large vehicle might be well advised to be prepared for 95-point turns, and carry their own provisions, as lunch waits for now man. (or Women)

Meet at 10am to Start 10.30am Ashwdown Camp WR11 7PA.

Please let me know if you would like to come: Amy 07899 025 091.
