WANTED: Mini Cooper Register Regional Contact for Warwickshire Region

by Richard Sign

Hello all Warwickshire members of Mini Cooper Register.

As you know Cliff Porter has been our Regional Contact for Warwickshire region of Mini Cooper Register for many years.

Cliff has decided to give up this role at the end of this year and to date we have not had any members come forwards to replace Cliff in this role.
It would be a great shame if we were to lose this active region of Mini Cooper Register!

If anyone is interested in taking over this role which doesn’t need to be an arduous role, please either let Cliff know or contact myself either by email at regions@minicooper.org or by telephone on 07968 307689. A task of the role would be to welcome new members in the region to MCR and events taking place and also to arrange meets for members to get together, discuss their cars and events taking place.

The role could be held by either one person or a couple of people jointly running the region. I can certainly give guidance aPlease do come forwards if you are interested. Once again, I wouldn’t like us to lose this active region of Mini Cooper Register.
Best regards
Richard Sign.
Regional Co-ordinator

NEXT MEETING – 25th September 2019

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!

At the Goodwood Revival this year there were certainly plenty of Minis to be seen to celebrate 60 years of this British icon. There was a track parade of Minis every morning together with various interesting displays throughout the circuit, in fact it seemed like there were Minis everywhere you looked.

Not everyone uses Facebook but if you do, did you know about the Thames Valley Region’s Facebook group? It’s worth a look and you may even see photos of your car from the various events throughout the year. Clive has had some new Thames Valley Region car stickers made so you can pick one up at the meetings in Hook.
We’ll soon be arranging our Christmas meal at The Crooked Billet in Hook and we’ll let you know when a date has been decided upon.

In September’s issue of CooperWorld there was reports and photos from our region’s gathering at Hindhead MINI’s brunch meet and also from our Annual Summer Barbecue.

The Classic Vehicle gathering at the Rural Life Centre in Tilford on Sunday 15th September was an excellent event. Several of our Thames Valley regulars took their Minis there and the weather was very warm and sunny for this time of year.

From gearknobs and clothing to stickers and badges, you can find celebratory Mini 60th Anniversary items in our club shop and more goodies are being added on a regular basis….if you can’t find what you’re looking for then please ask.
