Last August Bank Holiday I went to Hope, near Chester in Wales, where there is an ongoing project to create an ancient Roman fort, using techniques that are the closest approximation of how such forts were originally constructed. This project is called Park in the Past.

The gateway was put up and I was involved in the back-breaking work of digging a section of entrenchment. This was very rewarding and I made quite a few new friends. I was the only 'uneducated' person there (my word), but was made to feel very welcome by all. Some of the ancient food was delicious.

I would like to do something to help raise awareness, so I have already suggested that they put in appearance at Anglesey, where the GCRC will be racing on the Saturday and some of us will also compete int the subsequent Citroen C1 24-hour race. I thought it would be nice to invite them to the CGRC track day on Sunday 17th March, where they could receive passenger rides. I have spoken to Andrew Outterside and Harry Cramer, who are both happy with the idea, as is Paul Hairston on Park in the Past.

Volunteers come from all over the country and so there is no way of knowing who can commit to the time and distance. Most of those that do arrive will more than likely be happy to appear in period attire and we should get some excellent publicity photographs and videos for all parties.

I'm being cheeky and asking if any other Grads would be willing to take out passengers for a ride? I may also have other people, from work and from my caravan site, so I'm going to be busy. Included is a gentleman who allows members of the public to drive his E-Type and his Caterham for an annual charity event.
