8th November 2013 – We have a car!
Paul & Phillip drove up to Blackburn yesterday and collected this beauty. It’s a 1999 Peugeot 406 1.9D LX with a cool 122,000 miles on the clock. £400 well spent.
28th November 2013
We have had our first donations to Macmillan Cancer Support!
Thank you very much. www.justgiving.com/tallinn
2nd January 2014
Not long to go now, I’d like to say that the final preparations are now underway but we are not that organised!
4th January 2014
Huntingdon Performance Tyres in Godmanchester are kindly fitting our winter tyres to the Peugeot today. All the posts to this page whilst we are away will be done from a phone with no spell check so our apolgies now for spelling errors.
6th January 2014 – 5am
We are off, the Taxi has departed for Tallinn, the meter is running…
Paul is at the wheel with his new driving glasses on, Graham is asleep in the back and we’ve got 5 hours to get to the channel tunnel.
6th January – 10am
We’ve made it to the channel tunnel!
6th January – 3pm
So all is good, we have been through France, into Belgium and we are now in Holland heading towards the German border.
6th January – 4:30pm
Stuck in a German traffic jam and the car is overheating a bit and it’s getting dark. Could be a long way to Berlin.
6th January – 10pm
German autobahns are the best roads in the world, sadly we are in a 15 year old car that only had 90bhp when it left the factory. Still we have arrived in Berlin and rather than drive straight past and onto Warsaw we decided we’d have a nose around.
7th January – very early
After seeing the remaining section of the Berlin Wall and a quick chat with the local constabulary we headed back onto the Autobahn and into Poland. We have now arrived in Warsaw, it’s cold and nowhere is open yet!
7th January – 4:30pm
What a day… Started nicely with a very cold wander around Warsaw but just before we thought we were crossing the border into Lithuania we were pulled over for speeding and had to do a “deal” with the Polish police, all helped by the fact that Paul didn’t bring his driving license or the car documents! 100 Zlotti’s later we found that we were at the border with Belarus and had to turn around anyway!
It’s been a very long day, we are now 200km from Latvia and need sleep. We’ve driven 1523 miles almost non stop since Monday. This does not feel like a jolly!
Thanks to everyone who has kindly donated to Macmillan on www.justgiving.com/Tallinn
Wednesday 8th – 1pm
Nearly in Latvia but we’ve just found out the spare tyre is nearly as flat as the one we need to change!
Wednesday 8th – 4pm
Made it to Riga, nearly had a collision with a tram, parked in the middle of a market and scared some pedestrians but we are here. Parked up now, booked into a very dodgy hotel and off to see what the city has to offer.
Thursday 9th January – 2pm
We had a quiet night in Riga and set off this morning for our final leg up to Tallinn. We are already €40 down after another run in with the police but should be in Tallinn by 5pm. Last night we met our taxis Latvian brother.
Thursday 9th – 5:30pm
We have arrived! We are here in the centre of Tallinn – time for a celebratory beer!
Thanks to everyone for your support, we have raised a huge amount of money for Macmillan. We have driven that poor car over 1900 miles in four days, she managed 100mph on a downhill stretch of autobahn and was pulled over by the police three times!
It’s too dark now to take any photos so we’ll take some in the morning.
We have new flyers in the pub and restaurant that give you details of all of the events going on this summer at The Exhibition. You can steal one next time your are here or download & print your very own by clicking here
This years donation to Macmillan Cancer Support from The Exhibition Pub & Golf Society was for a huge £8,500. This takes our total donated now to over £62,000 since 2005!
This years total was a great effort, our thanks to all those who attended our coffee mornings and took part in the 2012 Godmanchester Fun Run. In addition to our regular fundraisers like the meat raffle and football cards we have some other people to thank. One of our locals cycled from London to Paris, one dieted, ladies had babies and boys played golf. We also have to thank Coldplay for donating a signed CD and photo and Red Bull Racing F1 for donating a factory tour and tickets to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix.
In short, thank you to everyone who helped us this year and well done!
The Exhibition has joined Google+ in addition to it’s online presence on www.theexhibitiongodmanchester.com, facebook, twitter, BIG | BusinessinGodmanchester, TripAdvisor and great results from Google.
Google+ seems to be a growing social media site and adds to ways our customers can find our about our latest events, menus and photos.
We have lots of followers on facebook and twitter so we’ll see if Google+ wins the social media battle. We also have a sneaky suspicion that having a Google+ account will help with SEO on Google.

There are four public houses now in Godmanchester, The Exhibition Public House is located on the corner of Earning Street and London Road in Godmanchester. The Black Bull is on Post Street, The Royal Oak on The Causeway and The White Hart on Cambridge Street.
People are searching Google for all sorts of short versions of our name.
Whilst we don’t expect people to search for “The Exhibition Pub & Restaurant” people are searching for The Ex, Ex or just X.
Godmanchester seems to have become G, GMC or Goddy.
We thought we’d better put this right by letting Google know that The Ex in Goddy is us and they should send people to www.theexhibitiongodmanchester.com
