Classic Car Run

SOME 200 classic and vintage cars set off from Chipping Sodbury on an annual tour of the countryside.
The popular Classic Car Run organised by the town’s Rotary Club was hailed as one of the most successful in its 21-year history.
In that time it has raised more than £100,000 for a variety of charitable causes.
Club president Reg Bleaden said he was pleased that so many people had taken the time to thank the organising team. There was also praise for the courtesy shown by drivers to horse riders along the route.
Those taking part said they passed through attractive scenery on a good rally course of 80 miles that took in parts of South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, ending in the grounds of Westonbirt School, near Tetbury, where lunch was served and a prize giving ceremony held.
Roger Warren of Whitchurch won the best car award for his 1965 MG Midget, with the best motorcycle judged to be a 1961 249cc Ariel Arrow ridden by John Lewis of Winterbourne.  
The president’s choice award went to a 1956 Bentley S1 owned by Tim Cross from Bristol.
