News from North Staffordshire Region

We had a great meeting in July at our new venue – Moorville Hall hotel, with a bumper turnout of members, cars and new members. Chairman Dave Page opened the meeting, welcoming us to our first ‘face to face’ meeting for some time. Luckily the large room easily held the 42 attendees; it was a beautiful night although hot in the meeting room. We welcomed five new members and also some who we have not seen for quite a few years. Present in the hotel with another group of car enthusiast’s was Ian Smith, who was Chairman of our region for many years and donated the “Presidents trophy” we award at our annual car show. Thanks to everyone who helped make the evening a success. Winner of the July ‘Car of the month’ competition belonged to Stan Crutchley and was a clear winner with 12 first place votes. Region funds received a boost from the raffle for prizes kindly donated by our members, the funds go towards expenses such as bunting, flags and gazebo’s. Dave Page and Carol Ingram reported on the shows we have attended in the last couple of months and outlined which events we have planned for the immediate future. Here are some for September; “Cars in the Park”, Lichfield, Statfold Barn Railway, North Rode Transport Show, Hinckley Motor Show, Chester Lakes and Ragley Hall. More details of these events can be found on the region webpages. Join us at the next meeting on Wednesday 15th September.
