We’re changing the pub where we hold our monthly meeting, so from Monday 2 December we will be meeting at The Lodge, Rettendon, SS11 7QT. I very much hope that lots of people will come to our first meeting at this new venue, bring your cars, old and new, big and small!
We’re also having a Christmas dinner at The Bell, CM3 8DY, on 13 December, if you would like some more details, please email me or text me, 07530 988788.
The next monthly meet at The Hawk is on 3 June at around 8pm. It would be great to see as many minis as possible, old and new. Hopefully the sun will be shining and we can entice some of those classics out of their garages!
We’re still looking for another one or two pre-1975 minis for the Maldon Motor Show if anybody is interested, we have had a pretty good response and if the weather is kind, it should be a lovely day.
And if anybody else wants a place on the stand at Brands, along with a discounted ticket, please let me know.
It was great to meet some members last night at The Hawk and I even managed to capture a few mini pictures in the dark in the carpark – I’m surprised I wasn’t arrested for creeping around taking photos of random cars!
I’m hoping that lots of you will join the Braxted Breakfast meet on 28 April 2019, it starts at 8.30am until 12.30pm and includes a hot drink and a bacon roll in the Braxted Park Estate, so how about we meet at The Hawk at 7.45am and all drive there in a convoy?
Please let me know if you will be joining in – this will be a great opportunity to get some lovely photos of the Essex cars – much better than me having to creep around a dark carpark at night…
Looking forward to hearing from you and hoping for a great turnout.
Hopefully with the weather improving, some of you will be getting you cars out from their winter storage and taking them out for a spin!
Our next meeting is scheduled for Monday 1 April at The Hawk in Battlesbridge and let’s hope it is open this time!
Maybe some of you would be interested in arranging an event for the group, I did put a message out on facebook but didn’t get any takers, maybe let me know what kind of things/events you would be interested in doing and I will arrange something.
Our facebook page is Mini Cooper Register – Essex Region, it would be great to see more people join and add photos of their cars too.
As the Essex region has been without a representative for quite a long time, I thought I would volunteer to be the regional rep and see if we can arrange some events or potentially join in with other areas, Kent seems to be a very active area socially.
It would be great to meet as many of you as possible at The Hawk on Monday 4 March – I will be there with my MINI Cooper S, hopefully the sun will shine and it will bring you and your cars out – if we can get a good show of cars we could use the photo for our Facebook profile picture.
if The Hawk is not a convenient place to meet, perhaps we could out another pub to the vote for the April meeting?
Please find the new Facebook page, give it a “like” and leave me a photo of your car.
Can’t wait to meet up – I don’t want to be the only MINI or mini in the car park!!
