Gunby Hall

 

The MGCC Lincolnshire Centre had a drive to Gunby Hall the location for National  Drive your Classic car Day. Gunby Hall offered free entry to the grounds and house to all participants on this event (previously it was only to National Trust members to the house and participants to the gardens) thus we all had a great day being able to spend time in this lovely house on such a cold day. The event was well supported and everyone appeared to enjoy the day. Thanks to David Stonehouse and anyone who turned out to help with the event. A number of members organised and guided other members to Gunby Hall on the scenic drive and I noted Veronica, Dave and Fran Noble all helping in any way they could. Thanks from those of us who had a great day out.

National Drive Your Classic Car Day 2008

Sunday 20th April 2008 Gunby Hall

MGs were guided to Gunby Hall by the Lincolnshire Centre's new Banner Flag . . .

It all started on 'National Drive Your Classic Day 2007' when John & Sheila Laurence drove their 1970 MGB roadster to Gunby Hall to celebrate this special day in the Spring sunshine.

A year of planning was to follow, led by David Stonehouse and supported by a willing band of helpers. Ray & Claire Ayres, custodians of Gunby Hall, pulled out all the stops to make the preparations easy and the day run like clockwork.
