Freezer Run - December 27th

Sunday 27th Dec, the Yorkshire group had its annual 'Freezer Run', or 'Christmas Crackers' as it has started to be known in recent years.

The hardy ones who felt they needed some fresh air after the christmas parties, braved the cold and snow and met at Lotherton Hall around 10.30 for a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich.

What a great day, the sun was shining, and yet it was verrry cold. We had a few brave hardy souls who came in Jeeps with the top down (see the pic of Chris Smythe, who looks like somebody out of the film ' the cruel sea').
