2020 WEAVER WANDER – POSTPONEMENT NOTICE
19th March 2020
In light of the current & developing circumstances concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Weaver Wander, which was originally planned to be staged on Saturday, 23rd May 2020.
The main reasoning behind this decision is our overriding responsibility to ensure the safety of all participants, the organising personnel and spectators. Whilst the health risks associated with driving around the various planned routes are assessed to be small, we identified that there was an unacceptable risk in conducting the registration of entrants at Nantwich Football Club, where we would be unable to meet the government’s current recommendations for group meetings in an enclosed area. We also identified that, although the meeting/assembly point at Hankelow Hall is to be held in the ‘open air’, we would be unable to ensure that we could meet the recommended ‘social separation’ requirements, particularly with regard to the catering and toilet facilities.
Thus, we propose to postpone the 2020 Weaver Wander through to Saturday, 12th September 2020. The event will retain the current arrangements for registration of entrants & we have confirmation from the owners of Hankelow Hall that this revised date is convenient.
The government’s current forecasts indicate that the pandemic peak should be much reduced by September & we are therefore hopeful that we can proceed with this year’s Wander in a more benign and safe environment.
We will be contacting all entrants, who have provided us with their entries, separately by E-mail, to ascertain whether they wish us to retain the their entry or receive a monetary refund.
Naturally, we are hoping for a swift end to these stressful times so that we can all get out and enjoy our cars and the countryside in complete safety.

Rotary Club of Crewe & Nantwich Weaver
Our current plans are for the 2020 Weaver Wander to now take place on Saturday, 12th September 2020 & we will still continue to take entries for this year’s event. Application forms can be obtained under the ‘2020 Application Form’ tab as pdf files and mailed with the entrance fee to Ian Thompson. In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from holding the event in September, we will be offering refunds for all entries
We have completed the planning of 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 still intend to hold the Registration at Nantwich Football Club and are hopeful that we will still be able to hold the ‘Start Parade’ through the centre of Nantwich, as in previous years.
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 during August.
