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.

Hello Team and welcome to my October blog! I've told you before that I'm not actually writing this to you now, as you're reading it, but rather dictating to himself at the end of September for him to type up for you — what with needing to get the blog written in advance and him not wanting my perfectly pedicured paws to be clacking on his keyboard. So when I last looked out on Tuesday...
