Midget 60 Postponed

by Richard Wharmby

As some of you maybe aware, Midget 60 has been postponed due to the ongoing pandemic. Please see below:

The Midget60 organising committee have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year\’s event:

“During a meeting of our North West Area and Mark Hall. We discussed at great length the possibility of going ahead with MG Midget 60 in June 2021, but it is with great sadness we have decided to postpone this event to July 1st-3rd 2022. We know you will all be disappointed but it was felt as the pandemic opening up date of the 21st June is too close to our event, members may still feel unsafe to travel and also the date Boris has set could also be moved on to later in June, depending on how the R number comes down. As so much work has been put into organising this event, we did not wish it to become a diluted event, with members travelling from all over the UK and Europe.

We very much hope you will understand our decision and join with us in looking forward to July 2022 when we hope we will be able to gather and mix in large numbers (mask free) safely to enjoy the company of other members from all around the world.

Those who have already entered will receive an email shortly with details of the options.”

More locally there is an event at Papplewick Pumping Station

Hi all


Just to let you know that we will still be running the Classic and Vintage vehicle event on May 2/3 at Papplewick Pumping Station. The only difference in view of the Government’s roadmap is that we won’t be able to let the public into the engine/boiler house etc so it is unlikely we will be in steam. However everything else will still proceed, so there will still be things on display outside and we will still have live music each day of the event.


For those of you who haven’t booked in and would like to attend please feel free to get in touch and I will send you a form.


Best wishes,
