Keep Calm and Rally on!

Our joint 50th birthdays were approaching fast and rather than have the usual evening, we decided we wanted something unique and unforgettable!

On 1st November (my actual birthday!) 30 of our best mates met for a light lunch and a briefing.

before jumping into the 2CVs

and moving up to the start line

under starter’s orders.

Then off into the sunny lanes of Surrey – roof open, shades on and side window flaps up and stopping only to pick up quiz clues.

A quick stop for tea in the depth of the Hampshire countryside.

Driving in convoy through the local towns raised a phew eyebrows and waving hands!

Who can fill a punnet with raspberries the quickest?

Then a race back through Sussex to the finish line.

Champagne reception and prize giving.

With friends – they’ve never stopped talking about the day and I still love seeing our rally plates hanging in their kitchens!
