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

Firstly apologies for the lack of a newsletter last month, I had a few technical difficulties and was very busy, by the time I resolved them we’d had our monthly meeting.

 

November has been a quiet month from a car events point of view but we’ve taken the opportunity to have a few social events. We had a nice trip to Southend to see the fireworks followed by a good, if a bit slow, meal at the Park Inn Radisson. The 26th saw a good day out in Rochester at the Christmas Market followed by a carvery lunch at the Wharf in Dartford. This is a nice location on the side of a lake with lots of wildlife.

Six couples visited Thursford 1st and 2nd  Dec for a Christmas themed show at the Thursford Collection. This is a spectacular setting with amazing Christmas light displays in the tress outside and impressive animated Christmas characters inside as well a huge array of colourful lights and decoration. On the first evening we went to an Indian restaurant that not only served good food but had the added benefit of only being about 30 yards to walk from our accommodation. The Saturday night saw us at the Mustard Pot in Yaxley, the size of the meals were impressive and nobody left hungry. Anita did an excellent job of organising both the event and accommodation and I’m sure we’d all like to thank her.

Wednesday night (the 6th) is not only out normal club night but also our pre Christmas Christmas meal, Lisa has asked if you can be there no later than 7:30 to be seated for 7:45.

 

Instead of our normal raffle we’ve decided to try something different. To raise a little extra for our charity as it’s Christmas we’ve decided on a different format. For those that wish to take part it’s a single ticket costing £5:00 (I’m sure if you really wanted to double your chances they wouldn’t stop you buying 2) I’m told there will be some spectacular prizes.

 

In an attempt to be a bit more eco friendly we’ve decide to have a single Christmas card that will be available for all to sign on Wednesday night, this doesn’t mean you can’t bring your own cards, we’re just trying to help all those time poor members and do a little bit to save the planet (says he driving his global warming generating classic car).

 

Although there’s nothing definite planned currently we’ll be looking to organise a Christmas/New Year run to blow the cobwebs out. If you have any preferences or suggestions please let one of the committee know.

 

Not long now before Santa brings us lots of MG related Christmas presents (hopefully).

 

See you Wednesday
