The brilliant sunshine across the county made for a special outing as the Leicestershire & Rutland Classic Car enthusiasts gathered at Freemasons’ Hall Leicester for a joyful ride out to Rutland Water.
The group congregated at the start point in Leicester, observing all requirements for social distancing and track and trace measurements before they set off on the pleasant ride out to Rutland Water. The route was organised by Bob Smith, and after a few detours, the convoy re-grouped at Houghton on the Hill before a journey through the rural lanes of Rutland.
Parking up at Sykes Lane Beach car park for a picnic and refreshments, the glorious sunshine was a welcome addition to the day.
In total twenty-five cars made the trip, of a wide variety of types and ages. The event was enjoyed by all and attracted several new members to the well-established group.
Although there are no further outings planned for this year, it is hoped that next year will bring about better times ahead for meetings to resume.
