Drive It Day 28th April 2019

This years joint Drive It Day run with the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club started under cloudy skies and then heavy rain.

However, this did not deter several hardy members taking out their pride and joys for the day.

A very scenic road run, starting from Norwich, had been planned with a coffee stop at the 100th Bomb Museum, near Diss and then on to the finish at Banham Zoo via Bressingham Gardens.

However, best laid plans and all that, things did not go well within the first few miles, with a road closure, meaning a slight detour had to be hastily found. For navigators who knew the area this was not difficult and they were all soon back on the route. Well done everyone.

The 100th Bomb Group Museum located in the former control tower houses many documents and photographs dedicated to the american soldiers of the US 8th Air Force. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

After light refreshments many headed to Bressingham Gardens for lunch and others to Banham Zoo where we were allowed to park on the grass area near the entrance. The weather had improved by then and everyone enjoyed a walk around the Zoo in the sunshine, watching the sea lions and then the tigers being feed.

All together a very enjoyable and interesting day.
