Chilly Willy Run 2019

New Year's Day, Tuesday 1st January 2019


As usual we are encouraging our MG friends in the Worcestershire Natters to join us for this year's Chilly Willy Run and this year we will be starting nearer to them at Singletons Nurseries in Lydiate Ash (600 Birmingham Road, Bromsgrove, B61 0HT) meeting in 'The Potting Shed Cafe', from 11.00am, where full breakfasts, sandwiches and tea or coffee will be available to purchase. There will be a scenic run of approx 28 miles taking us to The Golden Cross (our usual meeting place) in Ardens Grafton and an alternative route will be available if the weather conditions deem we need to stay on gritted roads. Lunch will be available at the Golden Cross, however they have asked for a pre-order to assist with catering at this time of year. If you would like to join the run and have lunch please let me know your meal choices by email ( ) by Sunday 16th December at the latest, booking is much preferred as space is limited at the Golden Cross, so I will draw up a table plan to ensure everyone can sit together and I have paid a personal deposit (£100) to the Potting Shed Cafe. You can of course join the run without taking lunch but please let me know if you are going to join us, so we have sufficient route sheets available and we know who to wait for, if you find you are no longer able to come just let me know to cancel by email or phone (01789 261 815). The plan is to meet at Singletons from 11.00am and to be ready to leave as a group from 11.30/11.45am, I have requested that they reserve an area in the car park for MG cars.


For this run we would like to see you in your MG but modern cars are also very welcome.

The Golden Cross have given us a set menu for the day with a price for 2 courses and this as follows:

One addition to the plan, the manager at the Potting Shed Cafe has also asked for pre-orders for breakfasts (she is concerned about serving everyone in the short time we have at the Cafe), so if you would like to be sure of a breakfast please drop me a mail with your choices from:
