More Online Graffiti
the voice of the
MG Owners' Club
on the Internet ...
The Northants MG Owners’ Club was established in 1978 to encourage like-minded enthusiasts of the MG marque to join together for social events and activities.
The club holds regular meetings twice a month.
The Overstone Manor, Sywell is the venue for the evening meeting, on the second Wednesday of the month at around 8pm.
Whilst the other, held at The Aviator Hotel, Sywell on the last Sunday of the month from 12noon. Existing members and those wishing to join the club are equally welcomed at all times.
As well as the club meetings, members receive a monthly magazine - More Graffiti - which includes details of forthcoming events and articles of interest submitted by members themselves.
There are many events around the country throughout the year and you can almost guarantee that at least one of our members will attend every one of them. Many times, we organise a convoy of cars which, as well as looking quite impressive as we drive through the countryside, can be great fun. We usually plan picturesque drives and sometimes stop off at a pub on the way!
At the larger meetings, we may spend the weekend camping or caravanning. The club often has an allocated spot which we nearly always fill.
During the past few years, we have held our own road runs in support of charity. The 2016 Rose of the Shires charity road run was held on a sunny 22nd May and attracted an oversubscribed entry! The run took the entrants on a 76 mile run around southeast Northants and east Cambridgeshire and attracted nothing but positive comments. "FABULOUS ROUTE"; "BEST ROUTE EVER"; FANTASTIC EVENT" being some of the comments received.
The event raised funds for our regular nominated charity which is the Air Ambulance Service which comprises the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance, Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Rutland Air Ambulance and the Children's Air Ambulance services.
With your support, we have raised over £1100 for this popular and worthy cause - THANK YOU!
We have already started the preparationd for the Rose of the Shires 2017 on Sunday, 21st May 2107 (Put it in your diary NOW).
On a more regular basis, we have our own small events, sometimes as part of our monthly meetings. We have quiz nights, treasure hunts, driving skills tests, and trips to local entertainment venues. And at Christmas, we always have a grand get-together with a slap up meal to boot!
It’s not just about talking cars... It’s about having fun! Whether you drive a K3 or a ZT-T, an MGB or an MG3, or even if you don't own an MG and are just interested, you’re more than welcome to join us.
