A community group for Whitchurch Hospital has moved to thank a club’s donation last month.
The Friends of Whitchurch Hospital received £800 from the North Shropshire Grass Track Car Club, collected over the previous 12 months, and it will be put toward fundraising for the Claypit Street-based hospital.
Rosemary Powell, from the Friends, said: “We would like to thank the North Shropshire Grass Track Car Club for their very generous donation of £800, collected by them over the last year, despite their difficulty in not having a home ground on which to compete with their cars.
“Sadly the club lost its Hinton Hall track when its owners sold it in 2017. At that time they had to leave and are still looking for a new venue. They want to stay within 10 or so miles of Whitchurch if at all possible.
“It would be extremely useful if anyone has some land they could rent or lease to them, in order that they can continue to support local charities. They can be contacted by calling Ernie or Pat Ashley on 01948 663415.”
The Friends of Whitchurch Hospital thank the club most sincerely for their support and wish them well in finding a new venue.

So we held the last race meeting at Hinton Hall on Sunday 14th May 2017, unfortunately with the sale of Hinton Hall we have now lost our venue. We are on the look out for a new track so if anyone has any ideas or leads don’t be shy get in touch with someone on the committee.
The last race meeting was a brilliant day, loads of racing, thank you to everyone that came to race, club, league and visiting drivers, it was nice to see and most appreciated…. lastly thank you to everyone that put themselves out and has helped out in someway to run the meeting’s this year, without you all we just could not do it. Cheers, Boggy
