Broadland MG Owners’ Club Update
As we are now into the 4th week of the 3rd national lockdown it will come as no surprise that there is very little Broadland MGOC news to report on. However, with coronavirus vaccinations now being rolled out, the evenings starting to pull out and emails arriving with details of big days out, there are at least some things to look forward to at a rather depressing time of the year. Already on the calendar is the North Norfolk Classic Vehicle Club’s St George’s Day Run, which will now take place in August. Earlier in January we received an email from the owners of Helmingham Hall inviting us to enter their Festival of Classic and Sports Cars, a favourite with members, which is also in August. That was followed the next day by another email detailing the Lavenham Classics Car Show which is on August bank holiday. Then last week David forwarded details of the Hoveton Charity Summer Fete which is, you guessed it, also in August!
Unfortunately, with the current uncertainty of how things will be in May it has been decided not to organise a Heritage Run this year. This is a big disappointment after having to cancel last year’s event too, and it’s a shame that local charities will miss out on the money raised.
We received some sad news that Michael Thorogood passed away at the beginning of January. Michael had only attended a couple of club meetings at the Bridge Inn before we entered the first lockdown, but he came to the only large classic car show we attended last year at Glemham Hall in his MGB. Regrettably, we didn’t have the opportunity of getting to know him better, and we send our deepest sympathies to his family.
