2015 85th Anniversary Run
Not so much Last of The Summer Wine as Last of The Summer Old Speckled Hen Beer! Either way, it was the last day of the Indian summer that we had been enjoying for the latter part of September and start of October, as the 85th Anniversary Abingdon to Abingdon Run got under way on Sunday October 4th.
The run, which started and finished at the Westwood Country Hotel just outside Abingdon, was ably organised by Richard and Gill Martin to celebrate the 85th birthday of the MG Car Club and entries had been restricted to 85 cars to suit the event. After coffee and a bacon bap to warm up after a chilly start, the 118 mile run got under way and the day soon warmed up. Richard and Gill had kindly noted twelve pubs and garden centres where lunch could be had along the way.
