Chilly Willy WARMER Run 2018

Sunday 24th June 2018

The Golden Cross to The Oak, Upton Snodsbury


Well the Chilly Willy WARMER Run was definitely 'warmer' than on New Year's Day. The sun was beating down on us all day. A select band set off from the Golden Cross (suitably refreshed with coffee and the odd bacon roll) for the 25 mile scenic run to The Oak in Upton Snodsbury where we all enjoyed a very good lunch.

Sunday 14th May 2017

Willowbrook Garden Centre, Catshill to The Golden Cross, Ardens Grafton

As this year's Chilly Willy Run was a bit of a washout with the rain, Graham asked "why don't we do it again in the summer?  It was such a scenic route it would be good to see it rather than in the rain."

As you can see from the photos below the sun did come out for us but only after a short shower just before we left the Garden Centre.  It was definately warmer for this re-run.  At the 'Cross' Matt had laid on a Sunday Lunch Menu which was enjoyed by all.

 We even let Carl join us in his Classic Mini



A new member who joined us just for the run, nice car though.  It is a RAILTON of circa 1989 vintage, designed by William Towns for the Railton Car C0 of Wixford!!  It is based on a Jaguar XJS.


Time for a well earned lunch





As we were leaving some of you will have seen Nick Godfrey's daughters taking your photo, here are the results.  Well done to Ella & Amelie.
