Chairman's Chat October 22

Hello Everyone,

Hopefully this newsletter finds you all well, there is definitely a change in the weather over the last couple of weeks with the onset of autumn.

Past Events

Sunday 4th September was our regular Sunday meeting which was well attended and members enjoyed some late summer sunshine.

Wednesday 14th September – Mid-month Meal – Lion & Lamb, Little Canfield.This was the last of our Wednesday evening mid-month meals which was organised by Wendy Way. Only eight members attended this even of which 50% of them were committee members or partners. Unfortunately despite the venue being pleasant the food and service wasn’t up to scratch so we wont be attending this venue again.

Tuesday 27th September – Noggin & Natter – The Fox Matching Tye. This event attracted nine members again with some who are unable to attend our regular meetings. I think this event has generally been well received so we will continue to run it through the winter and then reassess its popularity next year.

Events coming up

Saturday 22nd October – Quiz Night – Matching Tye Village Hall CM17 0QS.

We are holding a quiz night with a 60’s theme. A fish & Chip supper is being laid on by the club but you will need to provide your own drinks. A charity raffle will also be held with proceeds being donated to Children in Need. Prizes will include a bottle of Brandy left over from the car show, a jeroboam of Prosecco and Champagne donated by Dennis Northcott.

If you would like to come along to the fun evening please let Wendy Way, know asap as we will need to organize food.

Tuesday 25th October – Noggin & Natter – The Fox Matching Tye CM17 0QS. An informal get together from 8:00pm.

Sunday 6th November – Monthly Meeting – The Fox Matching Tye CM17 0QS.

Saturday 12th November – Classic Car Show – NEC Birmingham. There are currently four people interested in the event, so we are travelling up by car but if there is any further interest we will try to sort out transport. We can obtain tickets are £28.50 which is a £4 discount on normal tickets but we need to order them asap, please contact for more information.

Sunday 20th November – Sunday Lunch – The Anchor, Danbury Chelmsford CM3 4QZ

This is the first of our Sunday lunch meetings, please let Ian Robinson know if you would like to attend.

2 – 4th June 2023 – Weekend away – Caley Hall, Old Hunstanton PE36 6HH. This hotel caters for car clubs with reserved parking. It is within walking distance of the coast and is surrounded by interesting places to visit. This is now full but if you would like to attend please contact Dennis Northcott who might be able to get some extra rooms.

Friday March 3rd – AGM - Matching Tye Village Hall CM17 0QS. We have had to push the AGM back to March this year as some committee members are escaping the worst of the winter on the pretext of visiting family. To ensure that the club can continue in its present form we need some members to join the committee and help to run the club. Do you want the club to continue as it is? The monthly meals have been quite poorly attended this year, do you want these to continue or change the format?


Just a reminder that we now have several online platforms for you to get information and communicate with other members.
