MGCC Anglia Centre Pub Meets
The Cock, Broom, Bedfordshire
Ron Green: 01767 315306
Richard Cass: 01767 318166
The Natter was started by Gordon Warren and Barry Wilgrass in early 1972 at the Red Lion Deadmans Cross. It later moved to Southill and settled there for a number of years.
When the pub there was refurbished it changed in character and it was decided that it was no longer suitable and a move was needed. In January 2004 we were warmly welcomed to the Cock Inn in Broom and we have been meeting there each month ever since shop and alehouse. Inside it retains most of the original wood panelling and has a wonderful old world atmosphere. It has been expanded to include rooms from the cottages that used to be separately occupied. They have become the dining room and kitchen.
There is no bar counter. The ale has always been tapped from the barrel and passed up the cellar steps at the top of which is now a drinking area. We generally meet in one of the rooms that once served as the publican's parlour, and enjoy the lively chat round the open fire during the winter months. The so called tap room, formerly used as a shop, and the skittles room are at the front of the pub. Indeed, some of the nattering takes place during a skittles game for those of us who who like to throw things about. In the warm summer evenings we can enjoy the excellent ales from the Greene King range outdoors in the courtyard.
The good sized car park and the attached field are accustomed to interesting visiting cars. The Austin Healey and TR clubs also meet at the Cock . We have had some other vintage, PVT and classic marques to visit, especially in the summer, and these have and provided an interesting variety on the field.
Of course we are devoted to our MGs but you will get a warm welcome whatever you drive or ride.
The MG 101 Group, meets at lunchtime in various locations in the Bedford area.

The White Horse at Longham, near Dereham, NR19 2RD
1st Tuesday from 7:30pm
William Ball: 01508 471506
The Natter at the White Horse at Longham, near Dereham in Norfolk, meets on the first Tuesday of each month and is supported by an active band of MG enthusiasts (male and female) with a wide range of cars. There are currently around 25 regular members with cars ranging from the 1930's (F & P Types), through the 50s (TD, TF, Z Magnettes and MGAs) 60s, 70s & 80s (MGBs, Cs, Midgets, Metro and Montego), 90s & 00s (MGRV8, Fs, TFs and Zs). We even have an MG6!
We organise our own Local and Anglia Centre events, as well as supporting other Classic Car events locally. We also organise Auto tests for those looking to get involved in this type of motorsport.
Our highlights for 2011 were the Open Evening on 31st May, which was during Lincs Centre's "Norfolk Week", the Norfolk Gala Day at the Royal Norfolk Showground on 11th September and not forgetting the annual Norfolk Riviera Run on 28th December, this year beginning at Sheringham in Norfolk.
You are very welcome to join us at our Natter from 7:30pm onwards and on any of our events, even if you don't (yet) have a MG! You can be sure of a warm and friendly reception. Details of how to find the White Horse can be found at www.longhamwhitehorse.co.uk or by searching the postcode NR19 2RD. It's just off the A47, west of Dereham.For further information, or just to let us know to expect you, please give William Ball a call on 01508 471506 or

The BurbleNat (The Norwich Burblers' Natter) http://www.burblers.com
The Bird in Hand, Wreningham http://www.birdinhandwreningham.com
Stuart Middlemiss: 01508 570487
Terry Starkey: 01508 470354
Our Natter is held at The Bird in Hand at Wreningham on the B1113 Mulbarton Road south of Norwich, on the 4th Friday of each month, from 7.30pm. Using Google Maps, search on thepostcode NR16 1BH for the exact location.
The Bird in Hand, owned by Gill and David Brake, and largely run by their son and daughter, Alex and Lizzie, are enthusiastic about classic cars and have been campaigning to have us there! It is an ideal venue for our BurbleNat,Â withÂ a large car park, delightful garden and good food and beer.Â If you wish to eat, the phone number for advance booking is 01508 489438 .
The Norwich Burblers began in 2006 merely as a local informal group of mostly RV8 owners but has now grown to about a hundred members spread over the UK and overseas, with many different MG models represented, plus the odd Healey 3000! (well, it was built at Abingdon, after all).
In October of 2007, we decided it was time for a regular monthly get-together and the BurbleNat is the result.
Newcomers and all MGs are given a very warm welcome; there are no cliques of established members chatting only amongst themselves, I assure you! We'd especially like to see more owners of older MGs, to augment the more modern MGs, from the MGA onwards, which attend.
We also organise various trips and events during the year and often meet up for an impromptu chat in a local pub somewhere. The founder members remain involved in the MGCC V8 Register (and regularly attend the Needham Market Natter) but we also have an active network of members who compare notes on all sorts of issues, to do with various types of MG.
We also have a digital collection of Rover literature on the RV8 and maintain an ever-growing dossier of part numbers, sources and services for the RV8.
But please, do not have the impression that the RV8 dominates the Burblers; lots of members have, or have had, other MGs and all are passionate about the Magic of MG!
We look forward to meeting you!
The Lion, Needham Market, IP6 8EA
2nd Friday from 7:30pm
John Cumming: 01359 259717
Graham Wills: 01394 283810
The inaugural meeting was 13th June 2003 and came out of 3 friends, John, David and Graham, meeting on a
monthly basis for a natter and a pint as there wasn't an MG Car Club Natter in Suffolk.
Now, nearly seven years later, 20 to 30 enthusiasts meet each month culminating in a Dinner at the Lion in late January with 50 friends from Needham enjoying good food and conversation.
The Lion is well situated for the A14, A140 and A12 and has one bar, a restaurant area, outdoor tables and
chairs for those sunny warm evenings and a reasonably sized car park.
Since the first Mid-week Run in April 2004, they have become an important part of the Natter social scene.
The Runs are organised each month by a different member and partner/friend and continue to attract 25 to 30 members at each event.
Several members are keen followers of the MG Car Club Racing series and visit a number of the major race circuits as a group. Discounted Race entry tickets are available from the MGCC at Kimber House.
All MG owners and spouses, partners and friends will receive a warm welcome.
Don't hesitate to contact John or Graham for more information or just turn up on a Natter night from 7:30 pm on the 2nd Friday of each month.
