While we'd all love to see your seven there, you are free to come in whatever car you wish.

The event is being generously hosted by Club member Barry Searle on his 70 acre Ashton Hayes estate between 12:00 and 16:00 and is being organised by the Club's Cheshire & North Staffordshire, Merseyside & District, Lancashire & District and North Wales areas. 

This private and exclusive event is for Club members and their families to come along and enjoy the grounds.  Bring whatever it is that’s your personal favourite picnic food for a great day out.  The Club is arranging for tea, coffee and squash to be available.  We’re even having some cakes made for the occasion, and proceeds from them will also go to PCR.

If you'd like to work off a few of those picnic calories there'll be a GPS Challenge, strolling around the estate's arboretum, looking for checkpoints.  And the Club's local ARs are also organising some silly games for those willing to take part, or if not, just enjoy watching those who are.

With parking for over 100 cars, and the tractor garage, glass house and the Club's new inflatable shelter we reckon having enough shelter for at least 80 people in the event of a shower.

The lovely city of Chester is nearby, recently claimed to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing cities in the world, with the highest number of building fitting the Golden Ratio.  You can also visit Chester's famous monthly Maker's Market, being held on the morning of The Big Picnic.  And, 'No' I'm not being paid by Chester's Tourist Board!
