July Newsletter


Welcome to the July 21 Edition of Epping Area MG Owners Club Newsletter

Sunday 4th July saw us on the Wheel Meet Again run organised by the Rotary Club of Billericay Mayflower  & The Charity Classic Vehicle Club. The day started a bit damp with a short shower but not enough to dampen our spirits. A bacon roll for breakfast was followed by an excellent run through the south Essex countryside. Cars were set off in threes so as to avoid congestion, we followed an old Jag that had the unfortunate problem of sounding the horn on every left turn. There was at least 1 cyclist that wasn't happy about being tooted at as the Jag came round bend behind. Being the next car just behind them, we got most of his wrath. The run ended at Hyde Hall, which has some excellent gardens and good cafe where we had lunch. A good day was had by all.

Wednesday 14th July saw our club night which we'd delayed by a week due to it conflicting England v Denmark in the semi finals.


Sunday 25th July saw a group of us at The Orsett Classic Car show, we were a bit surprised to see an interloper already on our stand area when we arrived, so we did the only thing we could in the situation and recruited him as a new club member. The weather man had been giving dire warnings

about possible torrential rain and lightning, as it turned out there were a few showers but also plenty of acceptable weather in between. Our new (bought 2 years ago but only used once) event shelter came in handy and was efficiently erected by everyone. The next stand to ours didn't start putting theirs up until it started raining, big mistake.

Hopefully we'll get out to a few more events before the summer ends.
