PIP`S SUNDAY ROAD RUN REPORT
When I arrived at the starting point on Sunday this was at courtesy of Mr Eric Pritchard and his Wife. The field was already starting to fill with other Tractors and 4X4. Over at the Booking table, to check in Connie was making shore we were all welcomed, then on for a welcome Tea or Coffee, Mrs James oversaw the Raffle tickets.
Uncle Pip then stood on his tractor seat with his head sticking out of his cab roof. Just like the Pope he gave us all the safety sermon; which he makes shore we all take notice of. This included warnings of hazards will encounter on rout and things to avoid. Then it’s time to start your engines and get ready. (The Clip above shows us leaving the field )
Lunch stop was at the Rising Sun on Woolaston Common. It has been reported that £453 was made on the run!
It is also reported all were happy with the run.
