The Roses! The English Rose Sisterhood
Today isn't about the War of the Roses, is about a women motorcycle club named The English Rose Sisterhood! Who are the ladies?
From The English Rose Sisterhood website (http://www.englishrosesisterhood.co.uk/index.php/history ) we found out that the club was established in early 1990 by a group of women wanting a club for women only, with no affiliation to any male clubs. The club was initially based in Ashford where the majority of the women lived and met at the Black Swan.
Over time both the location of meetings and members has changed to the point that the club now has members from Wales through to Shropshire and London, as well as Kent, and meet in a variety of locations. Above anything the club is a Sisterhood, a group of close friends with a passion for bikes - it isn't always easy for women to just get up and go - they support each other in this respect.
In 2011 'Coming of Age' party was a special event made by the ladies. Was a special day for them: they had new and updated club colors for the first time.
These ladies are motorcyclists but, they have a kind heart and over the years they've done charity runs for Hospice and Comic Relief. The club organized rallies like The Second Blooming Rally at the Stonebridge Inn at Ashford, ride-outs, holidays and parties. Did someone say PARTIES? Yes, indeed! Let's find out what is about. The ladies are back on the track and they are having their own party and we are all invited. The Party with The Roses will be Saturday, 12th of August 2017 from 1 PM at "Hook & Hatchet Inn", Church Road, Hucking, Kent ME17 1QT https://www.hookandhatchetpub.co.uk/ . There will be excellent camping facilities, live music bands and of course the silly games.

An event made by ladies for everyone! Have fun!
With respect ladies, Yours truly, Andreea
