JOHN MARSTON MEMORIAL RUN 14TH AND 15TH APRIL, 2018

THE MOTORCYCLING LEGACY OF JOHN MARSTON 

On the centenary of his death in 1918 we shall celebrate John Marston's legacy to motorcycling - there will be a new two-day event in April and at the Annual Rally there will be a unique display of Sunbeam motorcycles which achieved sporting successes. There will also be five weekend events in Scotland, Wales, Wiltshire and Northumberland, and there will be club stands at the major vintage motorcycle shows and events.


The John Marston Memorial Run to Rhos-on-Sea on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April will start and finish at the British Ironwork Centre at Oswestry (https://www.britishironworkcentre.co.uk) where riders can leave vans and trailers. There will be scenic routes on quiet roads to and from Rhos on Sea, about 65 miles each way.


John Marston died at Rhos in March 1918 and is buried there; thus it is a fitting place for the Club to celebrate his legacy. There will be a Memorial Dinner in his honour on Saturday 14th April at the Colwyn Bay Cricket Club, Penrhyn Avenue, Rhos on Sea. Full details of the dinner and our speaker will be circulated shortly. 


In addition to motorcyclists riding in the Run, the Club is keen to promote a social gathering for members, and we welcome non-riders and their guests to attend the Memorial Dinner.


Critical elements of this Event are the Overnight B&B and the Memorial Dinner!  We have to commit to Hotel Room bookings and Dinner numbers by the first week in March.

THERE IS NO NEED TO SEND MONEY AT THIS TIME!! FOR NOW, PETER AND TREVOR JUST NEED TO KNOW YOUR COMMITTED DECISION.

I look forward to hearing from you by the 3rd March.

Thanks in anticipation of your co-operation

The Royal Oak is a very motorcycle-friendly pub – there’s even some Sunbeam pictures on the walls - and on the 24th June they are hosting a Motorcycle Day. The beer is very good and the staff were very keen to have us there when we met at the Sunbeam Ale re-launch event at the brewery.

We meet on the third Thursday of alternate months. The meeting is very informal, and you can arrive any time between 7p.m and 9p.m. Everyone within reach of Wolverhampton, and beyond, is very welcome.
