Gawsworth Hall Classic Car Show Friday 8th May

by Robert Neil McLeod

Hello All.

Gawsworth Hall Classic Car Show this year will now be held on Friday 8th May, If you can manage to attend on this day do let me know, it would be handy just to gage numbers ,though you just pay on the day and do not need to book in advance. This has always been a well attended event by the Midget & Sprite Club North West when it has been on the Bank Holiday Monday.

Hi All.

I have just heard that the Chateau Impney hillclimb will not be taking place this year. I checked their Facebook page and it says that the 2019 event was the last one. Sorry if you have booked at the hotel you will need to phone and cancel your booking , I will speak to the hotel tomorrow and explain the situation.

Prestatyn Classic Car Show

by Robert Neil McLeod

Hi All.

One of our members John Lister and lives in North Wales has been kind enough to send over the information as below thought it might be of interest to our members .

Prestatyn Classic Car Show & run through North Wales (Prestatyn is about 30 miles from Chester, and located on the coast). This is held on the Spring bank holiday Sunday and Monday (24th & 25th May). The drive is on the Sunday with a choice of distances of about 60 or 100 miles, with the start in Denbigh (County Hall car park), all meet up for a lunch stop in a car park (burger van), then the finish in Prestatyn. The static show is on the Monday and held in the centre of Prestatyn, taking over a large car park and part of the High Street. If sufficient members are interested, an area could be set aside by the organisers for the club.

There is no charge, all free! The Council appreciate the number of visitors the event brings into the town.

Yorkshire Area Meeting – January 18th

by Mark T Boldry

A little bit different this month… We’re combining the meeting with a Brewery Tour…
http://brewers-pride.co.uk/about/
The Pub gets busy quickly, so please be there as close to opening time as possible (Midday). We’ll try to meet in the Back Room where there is plenty of space and tables… Food here is good, generous and not expensive (very Yorkshire)… At 2.00pm we’ll have our Brewery Tour (£10.00 per head) which includes a tasting of three very different Beers (3 x 1/2 pint just so the drivers are aware).
https://www.ossett-brewery.co.uk/
We have been allocated Parking for Midgets and Sprites (or other classics) should you wish to bring yours along for the whole event from Midday at the Brewery (follow signs).
Looking forward to seeing as many people there as possible… 🙂

 

Please RSVP for this as we need numbers…

Chateau Impney Hill climb 18th/19th July 2020

by Robert Neil McLeod

Hi all.

Just a thought.

Chateau Impney Hill Climb, This is a weekend event we have yet to attend , a wk/end pass is £40pp with a Saturday day pass @ £20pp and Sunday day pass @ £25pp booked in advance . If there is enough interest we could look at hotels in the area and make it a club weekend ?.

Would any of you be interested in going and making this a weekend trip, if so we would need to take a look at hotels in the area , Bernie has been looking in the Droitwich area . I would imagine hotels in the area will be in high demand so we might need to act soon.
