Morris Minor enthusiasts enjoy first pub meet in more than a year




A group of Morris Minor enthusiasts lined up outside a Redgrave pub last month as they enjoyed their first outing in more than a year.

Around a dozen pre-war Morris Minors could be seen parked outside the The Cross Keys in The Street on Sunday May 23, as motorists enjoyed breakfast at the pub before setting off on a 30-mile round trip across Norfolk and Suffolk, returning for lunch.

Chris Lambert, who runs the Pre-War Minor Network, said: “We would normally do a lot of pub meets, but this is the first time we have done it since lockdown.

“It was a good opportunity to exercise our cars, but the best bit was when we came back to the pub for lunch and a natter, which we haven’t been able to do for so long.

“We used the The Cross Keys as it’s a community pub and we want to support it.”

Pub manager Heidi Woodrow added: “It was something different and people really seemed to enjoy it.”
