 Birthdays Run to Nuffield Place

We Celebrated the birthdays of 3 MGs, Helen's TC is 70 this year, Fred's Magnette is 60 and my B is 50 years old this year. To help celebrate this event we had a run out starting at the Artyard Café in Enstone and ending at Nuffield Place, the home of Lord Nuffield, who was previously known as William Morris and was the founder of The Morris Garages. At Nuffield Place we were allowed to line our cars up outside the House entrance, just in time for the sun to appear and ready for us to cut the cake. I much appreciate that no one was rude enough to point out my error on the cake but that didn't stop everyone enjoying it (I didn't bring any home!!). Another good day and the house is also very interesting to look round.
Here are some of the photos:

 Brailes Show 11th August 2018

 

The weather forecast this morning was accurate for today for our visit to Brailes Show. We all arrived in sunshine which soon gave way to light cloud and was getting ready for the rain to come later in the evening but I think we were all home before the rain arrived. The show was as busy as ever with lots of stalls, the marque with the village competitions and the Gymkhana in the adjacent field. We also had a very good turnout with 15 MGs, some of which were new folks and may come and join us for future Club Nights. Some of us even drove into the parade ring for a show to the gathered crowds. Another good day, thanks to Fred for arranging the pitch.

Chilly Willy WARMER Run 2018

Sunday 24th June 2018

The Golden Cross to The Oak, Upton Snodsbury

Well the Chilly Willy WARMER Run was definitely 'warmer' than on New Year's Day. The sun was beating down on us all day. A select band set off from the Golden Cross (suitably refreshed with coffee and the odd bacon roll) for the 25 mile scenic run to The Oak in Upton Snodsbury where we all enjoyed a very good lunch.

Churchill Show 5th June 2016

A convoy of 8 cars set off from the Golden Cross (many thanks to fred for organising the route) in dull conditions to collect Steve in his MGF in Broadway, by which time we were in the cloud.  We arrived at Churchill to find half of our allotted space had been taken by other cars but we all managed to park reasonably close together.  After a quick coffee it was agreed to meet back at the chairs for lunch at 1 O'clock by which time the clouds had started to clear to give us fine sunny afternoon.  The show was better than ever with nearly 600 cars of all shapes and sizes on display.  The selection of different Marques was vast with lots of rare cars to see.  An other great day out.  Here are some photos taken by Graham Robson, with a few of mine.

Chilly Willy 'WARMER' Run 2017

Sunday 14th May 2017

Willowbrook Garden Centre, Catshill to The Golden Cross, Ardens Grafton

As this year's Chilly Willy Run was a bit of a washout with the rain, Graham asked "why don't we do it again in the summer? It was such a scenic route it would be good to see it rather than in the rain."

As you can see from the photos below the sun did come out for us but only after a short shower just before we left the Garden Centre. It was definately warmer for this re-run. At the 'Cross' Matt had laid on a Sunday Lunch Menu which was enjoyed by all.



Cars on route - in the sunshine!!

Lined up in the orchard car park at the Golden Cross

We even let Carl join us in his Classic Mini

A new member who joined us just for the run, nice car though. It is a RAILTON of circa 1989 vintage, designed by William Towns for the Railton Car C0 of Wixford!! It is based on a Jaguar XJS.

Time for a well earned lunch

As we were leaving some of you will have seen Nick Godfrey's daughters taking your photo, here are the results. Well done to Ella & Amelie.
