5 times a year the Midland Automobile Club organises Hill Climbs at a tiny hamlet called Shelsley Walsh about 11 miles south west of Stourport. Each event has the practice day on the Saturday and the main events on the Sunday. One weekend is devoted to vintage vehicles, one to formula 1 cars and the other 3 to sports cars. I don't know how many hill climbs are organised in the UK, I do know of at least 1 other one in the midlands. We attended on the vintage practice day.
2004 was their centenary year and the lease on the land and course was up, so the club were trying to obtain another 99 year lease.
The next event is on 14/15th May 2005. The Sunday are the Midland Speed Championships Day
How about meat being produced and sold by an ex-vegetarian? Iain and Milly put the welfare of their animals first in their priororities. They concentrate on breeding a small number of "rare breed" pigs and sheep. They have Gloucester Old Spot pigs. They sell direct from the farm and on a limited number of local "Farmers Markets". At the farm they also sell some "rare breed" beef produced by neighbouring farmers. We went on 3.10.03 and were told that the following week they would have some "Dexter" beef for sale.
