Right folks,

Evel and I are in the process of sorting out a venue for a regular monthly meet. In the mean time, it would be great to have a decent get together before the end of the summer.

So, on Sunday 31st August there will be a family-friendly run out. Format for the day will be to meet up late morning at an easily accessible central location and take a leisurely cruise through some pretty bits of Shropshire and North Worcestershire. Bring your own picnic - we'll stop off on route. There will be a quiz to keep kids of any age entertained as well. You could drop out of the drive at any point on route, but I'd expect us to reach a conclusion by mid-late afternoon, not too far from where we start. Details of a meeting point and time will follow in due course.

Tell your friends - bring your kids (just at that point in the school holiday when you really don't know what else to do with them!). It's five weeks today, so clear your diaries and RSVP now!

Cheers
Aubrey

Re: West Midlands Family Run Out

I'm down to one cat - my six year old silver spot died yesterday morning whilst I was away at a festival.

Re: West Midlands Family Run Out

Right folks, I have arranged a meeting point for this event, which will be:

The Manchester Inn, Bromsgrove Rd, Romsley, Halesowen, West Midlands, B62 0HH. Map linky

It's very easy to find, almost exactly half way between junctions three and four of the M5, so hopefully easily accessible to lots of us. I suggest we start arriving at 10.30am in the pub car park, which is just over the road from the pub. We will aim to set off from there at 11.00am.

The picnic stop off will be at:
Wyre Forest Visitor Centre, Callow Hill, Bewdley, Rock, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, DY14 9XQ. Map linky

I guess we'll arrive there at about 12.30pm, having had a leisurely (and hopefully scenic!) drive. The visitor centre has toilets, cafe, children's playground and plenty of parking, plus a good few picnic tables. (It is a pay and display car park I'm afraid, but it's relatively cheap.) For those that want, there will be a much shorter drive back to the starting point to finish the day off, though I guess for some people it will be easier to head straight home from the vistor centre.

I won't provide details of the route until we meet on the day, but if you've got any further questions, give me a shout. I'll PM my mobile number to all those who have RSVP'd yes nearer the time.

In the mean time, let's see if we can get a few more folk on board!

Cheers
Aubrey

Shame. But there'll be more events soon.

The route is now planned for this and the weather looks as though it might even be quite nice!

Re: West Midlands Family Run Out

Good man! Glad to have you on board. Just tried out the route this afternoon - there are some lovely roads to play with, and some great views.

Any more takers? And what about our maybes?

Well done for organising this Aubrey but sadly I'm working.

Maybe next time, but I will be there one day. I look forward to it.
