A total of 16 MVs took part in the 35-mile New Year’s Roger’s Road Run through the lanes of North Bucking- hamshire and South Northam- ptonshire.
The annual event, organised by Roger and Janet Higgerson, with help from Gordon and Vicky Beale, started at Wolverton House for breakfast and ended at a canal-side pub at Cosgrove for a late lunch.
The tour took in Milton Keynes Museum where members found out how this area of North Bucks looked before the vast new town was built from the mid-1960s.
Taking part in the event were six Jeeps, six Land Rovers, a Leyland Daf truck, Ferret, Goddess fire engine and a Harley Davidson bike.
It was the first outing for Gordon Beale’s recently-acquired 1978 mine-protected Land Rover (above), which helped keep the peace during the Zimbabwe elections in 1980. It has added armour-plating and large hoop over the cab, should it get turned over.
Organiser Roger Higgerson would like to thank Milton Keynes Museum and to apologise to members for forgetting to hand out 40 mince pies, although he says they’ll keep until next year!
