Rain stayed off as MG club hails successful September
WEST Lancashire MG Owner Club had a successful month in September.
Starting off on September 2 at the Hoghton Tower Classic Show, near Preston, there were 14 of the club’s MGs on display in front of the 500-year-old building, with good weather making it a pleasant day out – which made a change from the previous week, at Ormskirk Motorfest, where everyone involved got a comprehensive soaking.
Things got even better when they were awarded the trophy for the Best Club Display, the second stand award this year. Two weeks later, the club had a social gathering – The TC party – at a club member’s farm buildings.
There were 35 club members and friends enjoying the BBQ, treasure hunt and cake auction. At the end of the day, £225 was raised for Southport Lifeboat.
A few days later, it was the club’s monthly meeting, a “garage clearance auction”, in which club members can clear out their garages of any of their surplus car spares and other bits and pieces, all donated in aid of the club’s charity fund.
There were dozens of parts displayed on the front table at the start, which the casual observer might possibly classify a “junk”, but 26 club members joined in the bidding for these items.
Two hours later, almost all the “junk” had been sold off and the total raised was totted up – £245 was the sum raised to be added to the charity fund – this will be presented to charities to be decided by members at their next AGM in a few months’ time.
