MGCC: MGA Register, Autumn Weekend, Norwich, Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th September 

This will be the first time the MGA Register have run a tour in North Norfolk – even the 50th Anniversary Round Britain Tour missed it off! Entrants can look forward to some beautifully unique scenery, including the Norfolk Broads – a unique series of lakes and waterways formed from medieval peat diggings. Alongside the incredible landscape, Norfolk is also home to the Sandringham estate, Burnham Market (birthplace of Lord Nelson), and Norwich, the home of Colman’s mustard. Our main hotel for the weekend will be the Park Farm Hotel in Hethersett. The event is being organised by David Simons, and he can be contacted on 01362 858976 or davidsimons55@gmail.com if you are still interested in the weekend tour.

MGCC: MGF Register, London Tunnels & Bridges Charity Run, Saturday 24th September 

How many other events run in such an iconic place? Britain’s capital city, a special and historic place that comes alive at night. London is a delight lit up, most of it’s famous landmark sights are illuminated and the traffic is surprisingly light during the early evening so we take the opportunity to show you this on 24th September. Traditionally the start point is at Simon’s Diner, situated in the parking area of Wimbledon Stadium in south west London not far from the river. The address is 94 Summerstown, Wimbledon SW17 0BH.

MGCC: South East Centre, Autumn Gathering, Eastern Counties Motor Club, Wethersfield, Sunday 25th September 

For this year’s 2016 MGCCSE“Autumn Gathering, we return back to the very popular National Trust owned Polesden Lacey – a large Edwardian house, with 1400 acres and breathtaking views of the Surrey Hills and where the future King George VI and Queen Elizabeth spent their honeymoon in 1923. Only four miles from Dorking and Junction nine of the M25, it’s the ideal space for showing off your MG and relaxing with fellow members, friends and family.
