August Newsletter


Welcome to the August Edition of Epping Area MG Owners Club Newsletter


The 7th July saw a reasonable contingent attend The Maldon Motor Show, the weather was kind, if a bit too hot. This show is always well attended by both public and cars and this one was no exception. There was a wide variety of cars from Ferraris to Trabants and everything in between. The setting is also one of the best, set in a pleasant park looking out over the River Chelmer with the masts of Heybridge Basin in the distance.

We took the opportunity to celebrate the 40th year of the Epping Area section with Trevor and assistants providing bacon rolls on arrival and a couple of excellent cakes supplied by Debbie which went down well in the afternoon accompanied by a glass of something fizzy (non alcoholic of course). Tracy and Lisa did an excellent job of decorating the cars with balloons and banners.


Maldon Classic Car 7th July


After taking a vote of members preferences we’ve decided to return to Blackmore Sports and Social Club for our monthly meetings. Having used this venue in the past we were familiar with what it had to offer and it’s a reasonable compromise, distance wise, considering where our members come from.

To make use of the facilities in Blackmore, we’re planning to have BBQ on Sunday 1st September. This will be a casual affair with a selection of BBQ type food, it’s proposed to charge a small fee to cover the cost of the food and everyone is welcome. For those that don’t know the Blackmore Club, it’s got plenty of parking and a pleasant patio looking out over the sports fields.
