New Year’s Day Run to the Old Ram at Tivetshall St Mary

The New Year’s Day run was very well attended. The first meeting point was on the A47 near Postwick and the dry weather meant a handful of classic MGs joined their more modern cousins on the enjoyable run devised by David and Geoff, to Tivetshall St Mary. We picked up other members en-route at Bungay, but those standing in the lay-by had a bit of a ‘Le Mans start’ as the convoy didn’t actually stop and some members had to jump intotheir cars and tear down the road trying to catch up with David leading the group! The meal at the Old Ram Coaching Inn was excellent – in fact David has booked it again for New Year’s Day 2020! Members had thechance to catch up with each other after the festive period and it was good to take the MGs out for a spin. Thanks go to David for organising the run and to Geoff for helping with the route.
