2020 WEAVER WANDER – CONFIRMATION OF THE DELAYED EVENT now to be held on Saturday, 12th September, 2020
We are pleased to announce that the rapidly improving situation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK has allowed us to now proceed with this year’s Weaver Wander on Saturday, 12th September.
We have conducted a series of detailed assessments on the health risks associated with the event, focussing principally on the registration and collection of cars and entrants at Nantwich Football Club, along with the arrangements & plans for the destination at Hankelow Hall.
We can still carry out registration inside Football Club and all that will change will be the implementation of a ‘one way in – one way out’ system along with the required social distancing measures in the Club. We can allow access to the lift in the front entrance for people who need it & tea/coffee and bacon baps will be available. There will be extensive provision of hand sanitisers etc on site and comprehensive signage everywhere.
The facilities at Hankelow Hall will be held in the ‘open air’, we will be able to ensure that we meet the recommended ‘social separation’ requirements, particularly with regard to the catering and toilet facilities. Again, hand sanitisers will be provided throughout the site & we will be assisting with appropriate ‘distancing’ in the parking of the cars.
We will be contacting all entrants, who have provided us with their entries, separately by E-mail, to confirm that the postponed event is proceeding as planned. If any of the current entrants are not able to attend on the 12th September, we are able to offer refunds.
Naturally, we are delighted that we can proceed with this year’s Wander after a long period of inactivity and we are confident that the precautions we are taking are fully in line with the current Government COVID-19 guidelines and we will ensure that the staging of the event is completely safe.

Rotary Club of Crewe & Nantwich Weaver
We have planned 3 separate routes comprising:
2 – 80 mile routes and a 50 mile route for older cars & those of you who may wish to have a rather more relaxing day of motoring.
We will hold the Registration at Nantwich Football Club under strict adherence to the latest COVID-19 guidelines, which we will detail in early September.
Unfortunately, we will not now be able to hold the ‘Start Parade’ through the centre of Nantwich, as in previous years, due to the restrictions on traffic movement through the centre of Nantwich
We have been asked if there is any age limit on cars/vehicles that can be entered for the Weaver Wander – answer – there are no age limits & all we require is that the car/vehicle is ‘Road Legal’. We also welcome motor bikes and we had 2 very interesting entries last year.
Our plans for this year’s Wander will take us again to Hankelow Hall and further details of the arrangements at Hankelow will be announced early in September.
