News from North Staffordshire Region

The winning car, an XJ Sovereign, in the ‘Car of the month’ competition in June belonged to region member Howard Oakes, although several others achieved many votes as well, we get a good range of models on display at club nights now which almost makes it a mini show every month! There were 10 raffle prizes all donated by members and this raised £51 towards region funds. We again achieved almost standing room only with over 40 members present at the Bleeding Wolf in Scholar Green. Our region has attended many shows already this year including Trentham Gardens, in fact since last month we have been to no less than 9 different events with the same planned for the next month. We had a good turnout for our own show at the Bleeding Wolf with many cars on display, winner of the Presidents trophy and car of the show awards was an XK8 belonging to Steve Bass, first place went to Howard Oakes XJ Sovereign, second place Dave Hammersley’s XJ and third place Alan Vasey’s XJS. The best visitor award went to Alan Price and his XK8, thanks to everyone who helped make the day a success. The attached pictures show our new banner displayed by the ladies and the gentleman of the club with a very bright theme! Early to start thinking about this now but it is a good time for you to take suitable pictures in the sun of your cars for the region calendar.
