Last Sunday, Goldhanger Classic Car Club held its St George's rally and run.

About 40 cars assembled for a dull and misty start at the Museum of Power in Langford for a morning of chat and admiration.

Cars from the 1920s through to the seventies were in attendance with a mixture of everyday cars such as Austin, Morris, MG, Rover and Triumph through to the exotica of cars like Bentleys, Bugattis, Rileys and American muscle cars.

At 12.30pm, they moved off in convoy on a run of about twenty miles through the countryside ending for lunch at the Cricketers Goldhanger in the sunshine.

Those who attended enjoyed the event and look forward to the club's next rally in September during the Goldhanger Gala Weekend.


Don't forget the charity walk next Sunday in aid of Essex Air Ambulance starting outside Goldhanger village hall at 2pm, arriving back at the Chequers for a hot snack.

The walk will be approximately five miles long, taking in public footpaths. About half the route is along the sea wall.

The cost is £10 per person, with all the proceeds going to Essex Air Ambulance. For further details and to register, phone 788432.


The quiz at the Cricketers organised by Goldhanger Argyle Football Club was greatly enjoyed by all those attending.

The prevalence of sport questions proved the downfall of some of the less sporty participants, but did not detract from the enjoyment of all there.

Congratulations to the victors, who won six bottles of wine.


The new licensees at the Cricketers, John and Sharon, have another evening of live music on Saturday.

The event is entitled "Rehab"

and features Robbie Williams and Amy Winehouse tribute singers.
