Anglia Centre Enthusiasts Trophy

As some of may have seen already on Facebook I (Peter Skipper) have had the Enthusiasts Trophy engraved and visited the South Norfolk pub meet at Hilborough, on Thursday 11th January, where I presented the trophy to Alison Isaacson as per the committee decision.

Everybody there also thought it was very deserving for the work she has done for the F Register and more recently Anglia pub meet. Last night was a case example with some 20 people attending the meeting.  Also the award is fitting for the excellent work she has done on the Anglia facebook social media site since joining the Anglia centre committee.

The 2017 MGCC Anglia Summer Picnic Report – By Roger Latham

Great day, great weather and a great line up of MG’s.

On a lovely summer’s day we met at the NT Ickworth House in Suffolk.

An excellent area on grass had been set aside for our use close to all facilities and the house and gardens.

Present were 50 MGs. These ranged from T Types through MGA, B, C, GTV8, Midget, Magnette, RV8, modern TF’s and Z cars through to the latest MG3’s.

‘Wow’ some display indeed, which was much admired by other visitors to Ickworth House.

At lunch time groups of MGCC members were seen enjoying their food and drink around their cars in the glorious sunshine.

This most interesting house was there to view, for those who desired, together with the magnificent and colourful garden.

I don’t suppose I was the only one who got a bit pinker than anticipated lulled by the summer breeze!

Next year’s venue is not yet in the planning stage but suggestions are welcome.
