We were delighted to welcome the Traditional Car Club of Doncaster to The Waterwheel for the first time last Sunday.
This was their traditional end of the season run out before people start to put their cars away for the winter and took them from their home base in Doncaster via various highways and byways to end up with us for lunch.
The first person to arrive was the Chairman, Stuart Carey, in his new (to him) Morris Oxford. I’ve never seen a saloon Bullnose Morris before so it was interesting to be given a guided tour. It’s a nice looking car and did impressively well to run smoothly from Hornsea across the Wolds to Howden.
By the time I’d had my guided tour vehicles were arriving in a steady stream and clearly demonstrating the Traditional Car Club ethos of owning “vehicles from every period of classic motoring, from the very earliest days to the more modern classics and exotica of recent years”. There was a wide age range from Stuart’s 1925 car to early 80s vehicle and they cover the whole range from mass market to luxurious.
As well as receiving our Car Club visitors we also had a few other visitors who’d come specifically to have a look round the cars. As a fellow car owner I can confirm that whilst it’s great to meet up with your friends and have a “noggin and a natter” it’s also very enjoyable to be able to show off your car to friends you haven’t met before.
Thanks to everyone for coming to The Waterwheel and we look forward to welcoming you back.
