Charity Classic Car Run

This event took place on 22nd April and was organised by the Charity Classic Vehicle Club, whose objective is to promote and support events raising money for, especially, children's charities in Essex.

The run commenced at Sutton Hall in Rochford.  We had a range of Porsches including, I was pleased to see, two 912's, and at sign on we were given tulip-type navigational instructions for a forty five mile run finishing at Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome.  The route took us from Rochford via Stambridge, Wallasea, Canewdon through to Hullbridge, Rettendon and South Hanningfield, where some were able to have a blast along the reservoir.  We then went through Great Baddow, Danbury and Little Baddow to Maldon, where we then turned to Stow Maries. 

It was perfect weather and following the drive we parked up for a picnic and then a walk round some of the WW1 aeroplanes on display and a look around the various huts that have been restored to make this the only WW1 aerodrome that now exists in England.

Alan Osborn and his team are to be congratulated on the smooth running of this event, where parking of cars at both the beginning and end of the event was accomplished with the minimum of delay.  All in all, a superb day out through some delightful Essex countryside and £5300 raised for charity.
