    We went this morning for the third year and loved it. The owners are so happy to chat to you and Costa Coffee was doing a roaring trade.

    Wish I could have been there. Weather didn’t look too bad.

    It was brilliant – our first Boxing Day run and certainly not the last. Great 30 mile route!

    Probably the most number of MGs we’ve had at this traditional gathering since I’ve been involved. Great atmosphere and many thanks to all who came along, MG owners, locals and visitors you all contributed to fun few hours. Also thanks to the Black Horse who opened up especially for us and made us so welcome.
