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.

John Cumming receives the MG Car Club Marque of Friendship
MG Car Club Marque of Friendship
I have great pleasure in being able to announce that John Cumming, host of the Mid Suffolk Club Meet, has been awarded the MG Car Club ‘Marque of Friendship’ award.
John, who is Anglia Centre Membership and Regalia Secretary, along with holding the position of Vice Treasurer, was presented with the award by MGCC Chairman Ian Quarrinton in recognition of John’s friendly approach to members, time given to the club and the sharing of his extensive technical knowledge among the members.
I don’t think that you could find anyone who is more helpful than John, he is always the person that you turn to if you need help or have a problem to sort out. He quietly gets on with everything from organising touring runs and events for us, to keeping members up to date with what is going on. He is one of the people who makes our club the success that it is.
Supported by his Wife Sheila at many of the events, I would say that anyone who has met John would agree, we are privileged to have him in the club. Well done mate.
