Rain stayed off as MG club hails suc­cess­ful Septem­ber

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

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.
