2018 WEAVER WANDER – UPDATE dated 20th May 2018

Invitations & final instructions have been sent to all entrants.

2018 WEAVER WANDER – UPDATE dated 30th April 2018

I’m pleased to report that we have completed the route planning for this year’s Weaver Wander and, due to the great response from you all, we have again decided to plan a number of routes to the destination, Gawsworth Hall, in the village of Gawsworth on the outskirts of Macclesfield. Details of Gawsworth Hall may be found at: 

We currently have over 100 entrants & I expect that the the final number could reach around 130. In view of the total number of cars in this year’s rally, we have planned three routes:

Route A, Nantwich to Gawsworth Hall  – 63.6 miles

Route B Nantwich to Gawsworth Hall  – 61.1 miles

These routes will be allocated at registration on Saturday, 26th May.

We do have a number of older cars taking part in the Wander & we know that a shorter route is popular with some of you. 

Route C, Nantwich to Gawsworth Hall – (40.8 miles)

At this stage, we would only like to know if you would like to opt for the ‘Short Route’ alternative, ROUTE C, & I would be grateful if you could let me know by return E-mail, as soon as possible.

I am also pleased to advise that we are able to again use the large car parking areas at Reaseheath College and this means that the despatch of cars from Reaseheath in to Nantwich should be relatively straightforward. It also means that we can accommodate those of you who may wish to travel in groups or Clubs. In order to do this, could you please also let me know by E-mail & we will reserve parking areas for you and allocate the same routes for you at registration.

The start of the Weaver Wander will, again, take place in Nantwich Town Square, where the first car will depart at 9.30 a.m. with subsequent cars being set off, 30 seconds apart, on the various routes. Please note that this timing will still apply to those of you who wish to travel in ‘convoy’ or who will be travelling on the same routes in order to avoid traffic jams. More details on the routes from Reaseheath to the Town Square will be handed to you by a marshal as you leave the car park, so that that we avoid traffic queues at the ‘Welsh Row’ traffic lights.

I will be sending out another E-mail with registration details & arrangements on 18th May and I’m told that warmer weather is on the way!
