August had a number of significant events for the club.
The first was Cars at the Claydons. This was a two day event held at Claydon House. Mike organised a run for thirty cars, finishing the lovely National Trust property. Saturdays car show was a bit quiet, but the weather was fine on Sunday and there was a bigger turnout. Thank you to everyone who acted as marshals over the two days, you were brilliant, as always.
We had 18 people attend the mid month run to the Plough at Simpson. A good evening was had by all.
Members also attended the Rufus Centre event, the MGCC Summer Picnic, the 95th MG anniversary at Beaulieu
COMING UP – WE HAVE MEMBERS ATTENDING ALL OF THESE EVENTS.
Club Night at the Inn on the Lake – was a quiet evening, with many people away on holiday.
Due to other commitments I find I am unable to organise a trip to the IBCC this year.
For those of you interested there is a “Wings at Wheels” event being held at the IBCC (near Lincoln) on the 15th September. Details are on the IBCC website.

Still hoping to go to the Haynes Museum near Yeovil. It will include a Saturday night away
Club Night at the Inn on the Lake and AGM.
– Please make every effort to come along, it’s the most important meeting of the year where committee members get to know what you’d like to do.
– We really need more members to take on roles on the committee, helping to organise events etc. I am struggling to give the club the attention it needs and I know Ian feels the same way. Please will you consider this carefully and let us know if you can help.
