Ross ROADies held yet another successful road run recently and together with their last event have raised £1,000 for the Midlands Air Ambulance. This will be presented to the charity at a date yet to be determined. Colin Davies of Colin's Tyrecare, founder member of Ross ROADIES sent in the following report to Wyenot News, which I am very pleased to publish. I joined the group on their previous run through the countryside and it was a lovely experience.

'Ross ROADies' 4th Classic and Vintage Vehicle Road Run, held on Bank Holiday Tuesday, 27th December 2011 was a real 'cracker' of a day, with over thirty vehicles taking part. [The group] enjoyed some stunning views throughout their leisurely drive of the Herefordshire countryside, before returning to the Yew Tree Inn, Peterstow for some welcoming hot soup and another successful raffle with generously donated prizes, to help us to raise some more much needed funds for Midlands Air Ambulance, which, when added to our running total from our August Bank Holiday road run, we are pleased to announce that a second donation of £1,000 has now been made possible. The presentation will be taking place at the Yew Tree Inn as soon as arrangements can be made in early 2012.

We have also decided that for 2012, our 'Preferred Charity' will again be the Midlands Air Ambulance, with Classic and Vintage Vehicle Road Runs being planned for the following dates: Easter Monday, 9th April, Bank Holiday Monday, 27th August and another run in December, the date of which is yet to be confirmed.

We would like to extend our grateful thanks to all of our many supporters, the many businesses which allowed us to display our posters and especially Phil and Lin Ballinger at the Yew Tree Inn, Peterstow for allowing us the sue of their excellent venue.

The following photographs were supplied by Ross ROADies.

I just love the look of this old bus.

As ever, there was a great range of vintage tractors.

There were several MGs in various colours.

They don't make cars like they used too. . . ..

What a lovely old Rover!

I used to think that a Landrover was just a Landrover until I met the Ross ROADies.

All aboard their vehicles . . ..

. . . and off they go!
