17 cars and 24 folk set off from Ross Spur Services on a beautiful spring morning to drive into Wales in support of Childline. Apart from Area 22 we had cars from three other AMOC Areas, the Lotus Seven Club and the Porsche Club. We paused for refreshments at Llangurig and it would seem ate the Blue Bell Inn out of supplies. It was warm and sunny as we drove through Devils Bridge and into the Elan Valley. It was nowhere near as busy as we had anticipated and we made good progress stopping for photographs where appropriate. It was here the two groups got strung out and the road closure and diversion in Rhayader and the road works on the A44 did not help. We approached the Three Horseshoes pub at Allenmore in various groupings to find that police had closed all the surrounding roads due to a serious road accident on the A465. A few eventually reached the pub but this effectively marked the end of the trip. We will get to the Three Horseshoes in the Autumn!
