May Sunday Drive

Our Sunday drive was an interesting route going from north Essex into Suffolk and back.  

Our Sunday drive was organised by Gordon Levett and we had an interesting route going from north Essex into Suffolk.  Nineteen cars congregated at PC Colchester for coffee and Danish pastries before starting on our sixty-four mile route at 10.00a.m.  We travelled via Boxted and Higham through East Bergholt and Brantham to Holbrook, where many were amazed to see the Royal Hospital School occupying several acres.  We then went under the Orwell bridge, an amazing sight in the sunshine, and on through Manningtree to Mistley, where, at the twin towers, we turned to Ardleigh. 

The route negotiated the tricky roundabouts in Colchester to go round The Hythe and then onto Peldon and Wigborough before turning to Tiptree past the Wilkins jam factory to our finish at The Halfway in Kelvedon.  We were joined by three other members for our lunch, which was reasonably priced and enjoyed by members. 

Although the morning had started with the odd shower, it finished in bright sunshine and members had sufficient time to get home to clean the cherished car before watching the Spanish Grand Prix highlights.
As a result of members' generosity, £120 was raised for our charity of the year, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.
Our thanks go to Richard Eniffer for opening up PC Colchester for us and providing breakfast refreshments.  Also thanks to Gordon Levett for devising the route, and The Halfway who provided efficient service.
