200th Anniversary Car Treasure Hunt!

Yes in the 200th year of the famous Fitzherbert Arms the 4th Fitzherbert Arms Car Treasure Hunt went off well with 8 competitive teams setting off in to the Staffordshire countryside to enjoy picking up clues, a few photos and objects along the way too!

This year the trophy and Silverstone Porsche Day, donated by our Treasure Hunt sponsors Porsche Chester, was won by Caroline and Sally of the ‘mini the minx’ team and they were absolutely flabbergasted when the results were announced! Their partners were in a separate car and clearly looked dumbfounded when the girls picked up first place on the podium and clearly thrashing them!

Second place went to Charlee’s Angels…..newly-weds Paul and Jo whose team name paid homage to our Deputy manager Charlee! Third place went to Treasure Hunt veterans Emma and Richard who also took part in our Bulls Head treasure hunt too last month.

This now marks the end of the Car Club season here at Cheshire Cat Pubs…..we have really enjoyed hosting the three treasure hunts and they have been the best attended ever. Here’s to next year’s Car Meets, Safari’s and Treasure Hunts. Thank you for all your support and enthusiasm at all our pub Car events.

Sunshine at the Fitz welcomes another great turnout!

Thank you to all the car club members and enthusiasts who joined us for the first Car meet of the Season at the Fitzherbert Arms on Sunday May 13th.

We saw club members of the Good-fellows Car Club travel down from the Bulls Head in Mobberley and from Tarporley we welcomed Cholmondeley Arms Car club members as well as the core of the Fitzherbert Arms Club.

The cars that featured on the day can now be seen on the ‘Past Events’ page on the Car Club pages on the Fitzherbert Arms website www.fitzherbertarms.co.uk

Tim the owner of the Fitzherbert Arms and James the landlord of the ‘Fitz’ were on hand to recruit 12 new members and to take photos of the cars on show as well as presenting car club mugs and car stickers.

Tim and James along with other members of the team chose his ‘Favourite Car of the Day’, ‘favourite Car in Class’ and ‘cherished car of the day.

Congratulations to Julie and Tony with their 1953 MGTD for the ‘Favourite Car In Class’ and Bob with his 1964 Mercedes SL230 ‘Pagoda’ for the ‘Favourite Car of the Day’ and finally Graham and his 1966 Wolseley for ‘Cherished Car of the Day’.

We will be in touch soon with the next Car Meet which will be held at our Three Greyhounds Inn pub in Allostock near Knutsford and Holmes Chapel.

 

Record attendance for Fitz Treasure Hunt 2017!

Fifteen Cars and their Crews turned up to take part in the annual October Fitzherbert Arms Treasure Hunt. Last year there had been fourteen cars which at the time was a record. We hold three treasure hunts in the year one at our Bulls Head Pub in Mobberley where the 3p (Porsche Pint and pub) Club take on the Good Fellows Car club one at our Cholmondeley Arms Pub and of course one at the Fitz.

In third place this year were the Volvo Vampires (Halloween played a part in one or two team names). Second place went to last years champions the
Pit-Stops, who obviously have a good eye for clues!

But this years winners (pictured) are Tony, Rob, Lesley and Julia or by team name the ‘View Crew’. The top three got some Fitzherbert Arms vouchers to enjoy and the winners had the added bonus of a Porsche Driving Experience Day courtesy of our sponsors Porsche Chester. Of course their team name will go on to the cup!

Thank you to all the teams who took part. It was great fun and all the teams gave it a good shot with a lot of ingenuity on the collection of objects
round.

See you all next year….

Treasure Hunt – a huge success!

treasureThe very first annual Fitzherbert Arms Car Club Treasure Hunt was a huge success! 14 cars took part in this year’s Treasure Hunt and after a close couple of rounds we had a winner!

The winning team was Anthony and Julie, they were crowned Treasure Hunt champions 2016 and accepted the cup and the gift voucher prize!
The teams had to take part in 6 rounds, made up of car general knowledge, cars in music, and a treasure hunt around the local villages!
We would like to thank all the teams for taking part.

Congratulations to all the teams that took part but particularly Anthony and Julie pictured with the cup presented by Jess.

See you all next year!
