On Sunday June 18th 2017, the Greetham Gathering held a run-out. A number of Gathering regulars attended at the start point – Greetham Community Centre, where they were able to enjoy bacon sandwiches and coffee before setting off. At 11:00am they went on their way; 20 cars of varying ages, and 2 classic motorcycles.
The route was planned to take them around some of the picturesque and interesting parts of the mighty county of Rutland. The route took them from Greetham to Exton, Empingham, Normanton (passing Rutland Water), Edith Weston, North & South Luffenham, and Barrowden (beautiful village green) where a rest was in order. After a break (and some refreshment) the group went off again to Seaton, Harringworth (impressive railway viaduct across the valley) Gretton, Lyddington (where there was another rest), Bisbrooke, Preston, Brooke and Oakham. The journey ended at Oakham where the town council had a Father’s day event and the vehicles took part in a static display there.
All agreed what a good day it had been and so its likely that something like this will be organised again. Our thanks go to all who participated and supported this fun event.
