News from North Staffordshire Region

August ‘Car of the Month’ competition winner, from the 18 or so Jaguar/Daimlers on the pub car park, was a very nice XJ8 belonging to Dave Hammersley, it was a clear winner for our last competition of 2019. The region raffle for 12 prizes donated by members (many thanks to them) raised £54 for club funds, thanks to Hazel Sutton for selling the tickets. We were joined by four new members to the region, welcome to them all. Alan Vasey is now great Grandad to a baby boy so congratulations to the family. The region attended 8 or 9 shows in August and bagged some awards to boot – Carol and Keith Ingram’s XJ8 awarded “Best Jaguar Saloon” at the Tatton Park Show and Dave Lewis won “Best classic car” at Hednesford Park Show. Events are being considered for next year, watch this space for news or better still join us at club nights. Now is a good time to submit your photos for the region calendar, these should be good quality/size (1Mb minimum please), for the choice to be made at the November club night if there are more than 12. Also bookings for our annual Dinner/Dance in January need to be made very soon to secure your place(s). Maybe too late but on October 9th we have a talk about “smart” motorways which promises to be very interesting, it is at the Medical Centre in Hartshill, Stoke, there is a buffet so it is essential you book your attendance.
