Ross ROADies conducted their third road run on Bank Holiday Monday to raise money for their favourite charity, the Midlands Air Ambulance which provides a vital service in air lifting casualties to hospital. Ross ROADies was formed by Colin Davies of Colin's Tyrecare, Alan Williams and Eric Lilwall who each own classic and vintage vehicles and like nothing better than to drive them through the Herefordshire countryside with other like minded people.

The field at the Yew Tree Inn, Peterstow was full of all kind of wonderful classic cars, restored lorries and tractors and they made a fine sight as they made their trip. I was invited to go along this time and did film some of the route. When things PC are all running normally again I shall include some of the footage on Wyenot News.

I was passenger in Alan Williams' 1958 Scammel truck. It was a lovely experience and the route we took was very picturesque. Leaving the Yew Tree, we took the Abergavenny Road until we reached Wormelow, then turned towards Much Dewchurch. After driving across the Tram Inn crossing we headed for Hereford, passing the Three Counties Hotel, turning right into Walnut Tree Avenue towards Holme Lacy. Driving through the lovely village we then passed through Fownhope and How Caple, then Upton Bishop and Bromsash, turning off near Weston-under-Penyard. Then it was a straight drive up to Ross town cente, down to Wilton, then back to the Yew Tree. I can see why the group enjoy their runs so much.

The tractor group, as tractors are a little on the slow side took an equally pretty but different route then all met back at Peterstow for some food and the grand raffle for which there were many prizes. The event raised around £500 which will be presented to the Air Ambulance at a later date.

Thank you for taking me along on your tour. It was wonderful and I look forward to seeing you all again soon..

Everybody taking a good look at the tractors before they set off from the Yew Tree.

I love this Mini . . . . .

. . . . but wouldn't mind one of these either.

So many cars, so ... lack of ability to drive yet!

A small selection of the motorcycles taking part in the run.

This fine truck is the one which transported me through the Herefordshire countryside. It was great.

What a beauty!

Some of these lovely vehicles really bring back some memories.
