Sunday 26th August Invite to the 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 deposit from Club funds to secure our parking plot.

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 still very good value, especially as the event always makes a large donation to Children In Need.

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 me know by e-mail 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 pay Tim in cash at a natter night , or:

– By bank transfer to the Cambridge & District MG Owners’ Club account:Bank Sort Code 52-10-46, Account Number 08196370, adding your SURNAME as the payment ‘reference’.

– Or post a cheque made out to ‘Cambridge & District MGOC’ to: Tim Clark, 2 Copperbeech Close, St Ives, PE27 5YG.

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