Eddie & Jan Partington with their Triumph Herald that our visiting dignitary Councillor Jean Todd would have liked to have taken home!
"First and foremost we would like to thank all the Marshalls and Officials who worked so hard to make the run such a success. We thought the route was excellent, it never fails to amaze us how many different ways there are to Buxton. The views were stunning and reminded us of how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful part of the country.
During the day we met some lovely people, of course it is always great to meet up with friends from the club at Buxton but this year we also met folk from different clubs and visitors who have really interesting stories to tell.
A lady in Buxton came to speak to us while we were in the Triumph and told us in the mid sixties her and her husband had driven a Triumph Herald overland to Turkey. Not only that, they camped, carrying all their clothes, tent and camping gear in the car. What a fabulous story, Suddenly eighty miles to Buxton doesn’t seem so much of a challenge.
Thanks again to everyone involved".
