Sunday 25th August Little Gransden Air and Classic Car Show

As in previous years the Club is planning to have 10 MG parking spaces in the classic car club area of this tremendous and very popular air and classic car local show.

Tim has paid a £40 deposit from Club funds to secure our parking plot. Hopefully the rain gods will smile on us this year!!

The £10.00 entry fee, payable in advance, is now charged per person, with children £5.00 each (the cost for one MG + driver = £10, or for one MG +driver + partner = £20.00, etc, etc). This is very good value as the event always makes a large donation to Children In Need (£12,500 last year despite the weather). For full details, see the website at https://littlegransdenairshow.co.uk/

If you want to be sure of one of the 10 places, then please book with Tim now (should you have to cancel nearer the date, then your entry fee will still make a useful donation to the charity). Please let Tim know by e-mail TIMBARCLARK@TISCALI.CO.UK  if you want a place.

Also please let Tim have the following details for the organisers: Name; Model of MG; Registration; Year; Number of Adults; Number of Children.

Please see the email from Tim for payment details.

This invite will be repeated closer to the time, if there are any spaces left.
