Jack Frost New Year Road Run

Sunday 7th Jan 2018

We extend a warm welcome to you to join our post-Christmas road run. Unless there are impassable snowdrifts (6ft or over), we intend to 'patrol' along meandering byways, cheat almost certain death through a shallow ford, and risk sniper fire through an eerie wood. WARNING Anyone attempting this winding course along the high-ways & bi-ways in a large vehicle might be well advised to be prepared for 95-point turns, and carry their own provisions, as lunch waits for now man. (or Women)

We will stop for lunch at 13.00hrs at the Famous Fleece Inn at Bretforton, where we will be given a warm welcome, warm drink and a lunch will be provided. (Ashdown Military Club Members this will be paid for, guests will be charged a small fee)

Meet at 10.30am to leave for 11.00am Ashwdown Camp WR11 7PA.

Please let me know if you would like to come: Amy 07899 025 091.
