The Church Minshull Community Website

A gathering of vintage cars at the Badger Inn, was an unexpected surprise in Church Minshull on New Years day.
The Vintage Sports Car Club (Cheshire branch) holds an annual gathering every New Years Day and the Badger Inn was selected due to its age and character.
Dave Maroney and Bob (Bunny) Bunn, are the organisers, who are based in Aston, told ARENA that the club chooses venues which are in keeping with the age and character of the cars, themselves.
Along with Peter Lakin's superb Rolls Royce, were cars such as a 1935 Lagonda M45, owned by Brian Green, from Haughton, Nantwich and a 1953 Jaguar C-type (Le Mans style) with its 6-cyl XK engine, owned by John Sykes.
A very pleasant surprise, which ARENA hopes, can get more notice of next time to publicise to the community.
