The Potteries and South Cheshire MG Owners Club 25th Anniversary

On Saturday 11th March 2017 we celebrated our 25th Anniversary with a race night and hog roast at the Rode Heath Village Hall.  It was a great night, with lots of fun and `competitive spirits !` and there was certainly no shortage on the hog roast.

If the support is there perhaps run one again in 2018 – early in the year as a get together.  

Overall on the evening we made a clear profit of £237, which goes into the Charity fund.

Well done everyone

Cheers

Bob 

 

Classic car club coffee morning at the Kilton Inn, Mere March 2017

Few members of the club attended a coffee morning for classic car fans at the Kilton Inn, Mere – this will be a regular monthly event for all like-minded car owners

 

Club Evo Run – April 2017

We had a great Sunday run out on a new course planned and organised by Ray and Jenny, we had a nice drive out into Wales with a breakfast stop at Rhug Café and Shop followed by the Evo Run, which most people did two laps of.  After meeting up afterwards we then had a pub Sunday dinner on the way home.

It was a bright but chilly day, however it remained dry so it was top down for the more adventurous of us ! – scenery on the run was outstanding and it was well attended, numbers being limited only by the eating arrangements.

Overall it was a fantastic day and we will be doing it again later on in the year

Ramsbottom was one of the stops, with its park, quaint shops and cafes. So there were lots of things to do, places to visit and some great eating spots making it a brilliant day.

 

 

Tatton Park “Passion for Power” Classic Motor Show

The club attened both days of the August Tatton Park “Passion for Power” Classic Motor Show, unfortunately the Saturday was hit with rain, followed by more rain overnight which left the grounds somewhat soggy and muddy in places on the Sunday. Unfortunately due to the conditions the organisers decided not to allow the clubs to sort their locations out themselves so we ended up with quite a few mixed displays and clubs not where they were meant to be.  Thankfully we managed to regroup and made the best of it with only a few members in other parts of the field.

We along with other clubs made the best of the day and thankfully the weather turned out warm and fine with no more rain !!!

Bob the club secretary won best RV8 in show – well done !!

The club attended both the Saturday and Sunday of the High Legh Garden Centre Classic Car show. We also marshalled both days of the event and it’s fair to say some of our members looked quite stylish in their high viz tabards !!.

This free show is held by the Garden Centre for the benefit of Donna Louise Children’s Hospice, Staffordshire Air Ambulance and Blood Bikers charities donations for which were collected.

There was a superb range of classic cars on display, including some very rare vintage vehicles and a couple of the owners even had old style gramophone players to add to the atmosphere.

The weather was fine and warm over both days and It was very busy with visitors over both the days, in particular the Sunday, with people being very generous with donations to the charities.

It was also fantastic to see so many enthusiasts turning out in their pride and joys for this charitable event with over ninety vehicles on display in fact so many turned up additional parking areas had to be found.

 

 

Club Visit to the AVRO Museum – October 2017

The Avro museum has been going for 3 – 4 years, one of the places that is on your doorstep that you don’t hear of – but we have now – not perhaps one of the biggest places but absolutely packed with memorabilia – and of course the crowning glory, parked outside a whopping great AVRO Vulcan, which we were allowed to park under the wing for a photo shoot.

We also got the opportunity to into the miniscule cockpit of the Vulcan – to the Falklands and back, some feat, we also had the chance to sit in the cockpit of a VC10, whopping compare to the Vulcan

Certainly a place to visit if you get the chance
