Classic car and motorbike enthusiasts enjoy outdoor meet near Nantwich
A ‘Classic car and motorbike meet’ took place at the Venetian Marina Tearoom, within Venetian Marina, in Cholmondeston near Nantwich on Thursday 17th September 2020.
The meets are free and organised by Venetian Marina Tearoom owner Andrea Nixon and held from March to October on the first Thursday of each month (5:30pm onwards).
The meet on 17th September was an extra event due to a forecast of warm and sunny weather, which turned out to be correct. Classic car manufacturers on display were Eunos, Jaguar, MG, and Westfield with motorbike manufacturers represented by Harley-Davidson.
The meets are an opportunity for people to park up and meet up outside to have socially distanced discussions relating to their vehicles and enjoy the tranquil beauty of the south Cheshire countryside.
Venetian Marina Tearoom was also open late for people to enjoy delicious food & drink next to their vehicles in the car park area or on outdoor seating next to the Shropshire Union Canal – all whilst watching the narrowboats pass by on their journey through the adjacent locks and onward along the canal. Indoor seating is also available if required.
Andrea Nixon plans to have a Thursday meet in October, and Saturday afternoon meets through the Winter, unless restricted by any new government Coronavirus guidelines or inclement weather.
Venetian Marina is one of the premier marinas in north-west England and also features a workshop, chandlery, and gift shop.
