Christmas Skittles and Festive Fun - 14th December 2011



For our last Branch meeting of the year we held our 'Christmas Skittles and Festive Fun' evening.  This event has become a regular and popular feature on our calendar.  During the evening we enjoyed an some good humoured rivalry with the old fashioned pub skittles, some excellent food and lots of laughter with friends.  There was even a not too taxing Christmas quiz which kept us amused.  Winners of the skittles and quiz events were awarded some special 60th Anniversary MMOC prizes. Our 'club house' - The Greyhound did us proud with a great buffet of lots of goodies and, of course, mince pies.  A brilliant evening and end of a brilliant year for our Branch.

Classic Motor Show, NEC - 11-13 November 2011



Some of our members visited the MMOC stand at the Classic Motor Show over the weekend and it was good to meet up with other members from Branches as far away as Lancashire and Yorkshire.  The theme this year was based on the Market Square at Oxford and the presence of the war memorial with poppies for remembrance weekend was a touching feature which drew many positive comments.

    

A lot of work had gone into the preparation of the stand which included a car showroom complete with a lovely blue convertible on a rotating plinth! Regalia was sold from an old style market stall and the many cars exhibited represented a wide range of all the Minor variants.  There was even a market cafe which provided refreshments.





A separate stand for LCVs included Adam Kent Smith’s superb green van and another pickup which needed a little work to say the least!  Another stand displayed six Morrises recently found in one garden somewhere in the wilds!

Club Meeting - Wednesday 9th November 2011

At our November 'Noggin & Natter' meeting we all spent some time preparing our calendar of events for 2012 and these will be issued shortly when the schedule has been finalised.  We are always looking for new ideas and speakers for our meetings so if you have any suggestions or contacts do please let us know.  Our next meeting in December will be our annual Christmas skittles evening and buffet at our 'club house' The Greyhound.

MMOC Branch Liaison Meeting - October 2011

Our Branch liaison offer, Roger Hayman, attended this meeting and has provided the following points:

MEMBERSHIP
Membership renewals are currently falling - down by 300 in the last year, direct debit payment is being introduced to make things easier.  Liz Saxon from the Derby office was presented with the "Jack Daniels Endeavour Award" for her 16 years service to the club including the recent reorganization of the offices.

BRANCHES/AREAS
There is to be a review of Area boundaries following the resignation of Reps from areas 2 & 10.  The proposal is to split England & Wales into 3 areas (North, Central & South) leaving Scotland & Northern Ireland as they are. This will be finalised by the National Executive.  A new Leeds branch has been formed.  

Thanks were given to Murray Jessop & Jonathon Swift for their efforts as coordinators in areas 2 & 10.

CONCOURS
There have been some concerns regarding Concours events this year & a separate meeting was held involving those concerned.  It was agreed that there should be increased communication between the Concours Judges & MMOC & Rally organisers, no minimum number of entrants, there would be a geographical spread of events and a more consistent standard of judging. 

NATIONAL RALLY
Paul & Pete from Mansfield branch had been asked to look at how National rallies could be improved & gave a presentation of their findings.  They are currently looking for a Midland venue for the 2014 National Rally.  As 2013 will be the Morris Centenary there will be a big multi club rally around the Oxford area.  The 2012 National Rally will be at Kelmarsh Hall, Northamptonshire on 30th June–1st July.

Dutch Auction - 12th October 2011



For the October meeting we ran our annual Dutch Auction which always proves to be an enjoyable and entertaining evening with lots of different items on offer. As might be expected there was a range of Morris items available, lots of unusual things and a good selection of various goodies to eat and drink!  From trunnions to chocolates, beetroots to wiper blades and bonnet badges to bottles of beer - just some of the wide selection to place bids on!  This is not only a great social evening but we also donate all money raised to our local charity, Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, which does such wonderful work in the community. A great evening and brilliant fun!

MADMOG ...Food for Thought! - 11th October 2011



It's a Tuesday night and there was only one place to be - The Hutt at Ravenstone, for the Mansfield and District Morris Owners Group (MADMOG) annual quiz night! A small number of our Branch members were delighted to join in the fun and try to get their heads around a wide range of questions (some Morris related and some not).  There was a great atmosphere and a great turn out too, with teams from several Branches including, East Midlands, Barnsley, Bridlington & Wolds, Leicestershire and of course MADMOG - and some who had yet to join a Branch.  The quiz master was none other than MMOC Club Secretary, Ray Newell - so we all knew that there were going to be some Morris mind-benders!  This was a great evening with friendly rivalry, lots of fun and one which really encouraged the true spirit of inter-branch relationships to take place.  Well done to Chairman, Paul Temple, and the MADMOG team.  Oh, and what is the connection between A Christmas Carol, R Whites, The Strip and Pudding Lane???

Welsh Moggies



A couple of Branch members made a recent return visit to MMOC members Chris and Lyn's holiday cottage in North Wales.  This was as enjoyable as ever, despite mixed weather.  On arrival Chris's green Series II was parked outside the cottage, looking resplendent in the autumn sunshine.  It also looked good later in the week soaked in Welsh drizzle!  The cottage which is regularly advertised in Minor Matters, is adjacent to the Ffestiniog Railway's Penrhyn Station (- only a 30 second stroll to the platform) so it is great for railway buffs too!  Whilst out and about the game of 'Spot a Moggie' was played and a green Traveller was also discovered amongst the cottages, so clearly they are well able to cope with both Welsh mountains and rain!

1st Hinckley Classic Motor Show - Sunday 25th September 2011



Never, never ever trust the weather forecast! What was supposed to be a day of light cloud, sunny spells and warm temperatures turned out as a day of grey cloud, intermittent light drizzle and a definite chill in the air, good job we classic car enthusiasts are a hardy lot!

The event was the first held by the Hinckley Business Improvement District to encourage visitors into the town centre and the planning had just the right mix of organisation and informality.  One of the council team reported that the event had attracted around 190 entries, however it appeared that there were more than that because the cars were spread around the town centre and down several side streets so it was hard to judge.  Not only that but there was a great range of all types of vehicles too!

 
    Endangered species - 70's Hillman Avenger Tiger - rarer than the real thing!                              There's a scooter in there somewhere!

The Leicestershire branch were very well represented and several people picked up our 'Welcome' leaflet so let’s hope for a new face or two at our next branch meeting!



Due to the success of this first show, it is sure to become an annual event - so watch this space!

Atherstone Heritage Motor Show - Sunday 18th September 2011



A sunny morning saw a number of Morris Minors at the Atherstone Heritage Motor Show, in the historic Market Square.  Leicestershire member Adam Kent-Smith was there with his superb green van and MMOC young member Josh brought along his black 2 door saloon.  At only 17 Josh is enthusiastically flying the flag for the appeal of the Minor to youngsters.  Perhaps the highlight of the show was the sight of 13 ladies (yes 13!) piling out of an original mini watched nonchalantly by two unconcerned policemen! A lively and well attended event with a great atmosphere.

Morris Minor - "One in a Million"

On 14th September we were delighted to welcome back MMOC Club Secretary, Ray Newell to our Branch meeting.  Ray has been regarded as the acknowledged authority on the Morris Minor for many years and has written several books on this iconic car.  He spoke to members about his recent fascinating book entitled 'Morris Minor - One in a Million' which he co-wrote with Richard McKellar.  This book tells the story of the total restoration of a Million carried out by Richard McKellar and his father in Australia.  Ray amused members with anecdotes about the creation of the book and the logistics of writing with a co-author on the otherside of the world, and also provided an insight into lots of technical details about the Minor Million!  A most enjoyable, informative and entertaining evening.

East Midlands and Midlands Regional Rally at Chatsworth - Sunday 11 September 2011



On a bright Sunday morning a number of branch members made their way through the beautiful Derbyshire countryside to Chatsworth.  This is always a stunning venue at any time of the year and the estate looked wonderful in the late summer sunshine for the East Midlands and Midland Regional Rally.  Even after a short shower our spirits were not dampened and the Morrises were quickly dried and repolished to look their best for the rest of the afternoon. There was a brilliant turn out with over 70 cars, including concours models.

Leicestershire member Roger Hayman proudly showed off his 1961 Traveller which he had got only two days earlier and Tony Fennell was delighted to win a trophy with his 1949 MM saloon.  In the concours judging Paul Temple, MADMOG Chairman, was equally delighted to receive a trophy for his Series II saloon in his first entry to the concours section.

Leicestershire Branch Rally at Donington le Heath Manor House - 21 August 2011


The day of our Branch Rally had finally arrived and on a bright and promising Sunday morning members made their way to the venue.  Each year the rally is held at a different site of interest in the county and this time it was the turn of Donington le Heath Manor House.  This provided a lovely setting being a well preserved medieval manor house with 17th century oak furnishings and set in delightful period gardens and orchards.  By 11:30 we had welcomed 50 cars and LCVs from far and wide, and they made a very fine display in brilliant sunshine on the lawns and car park. 



The weather was perfect and after leisurely picnics or lunches in the ‘The Classics Tea Room’ visitors had the chance to try their skill with a selection of tradition lawn games – hoop la, horseshoe throwing, coconut shy and skittles or browse the autojumble.
   

    

Then came the serious bit! Judging of vehicles took place in the afternoon and after careful decisions trophies were awarded by our chairman, Mike John, to the winners.  There were 7 categories and a special ‘Ladies Choice’ award to the vehicle which our lady judges would ‘most like to drive home in’!  The winners were:

Category                   Name                             Reg No

2 Door Saloon             Joe Murray                    OKO 668G

4 Door Saloon             Brian Green                   PSA 110J

Traveller 1st               Bryan Goodman              YDU 708J

Traveller 2nd               David & Lesley Price      AAU 633T

Commercial                Gillian Shaw                  JUL 537D

MM & Series II             Tony Fennell                  JWT 365

Ladies Choice             Geoffrey Taylor             249 YKO

We must thank Stevenson Motors/A Series Spares who very kindly sponsored the trophies.



All in all this proved to be a lovely event and one we were delighted to share with old and new friends from many different branches  around the Midland and Eastern counties.
I wonder where we will be for next year?

14th August - Phoenix Rally at Ruddington



It was a bright and sunny Sunday as some of our members made their way to join friends from the East Midlands Branch for the 4th Phoenix Rally, Ruddington.  This event takes place each year at the Nottingham Transport Heritage Centre, and is named 'Phoenix' after the disastrous fire which destroyed several classic vehicles a few years ago.  The centre now houses different classic vehicles and is situated at the Great Central Railway Line terminus of Ruddington Fields just outside Nottingham.  This is always a very friendly and enjoyable event, and this year members were able to take a free train ride on the recently reopened track into Loughborough as well as looking at the wide selection of classic cars which always put in an appearance. 

 



A visit to this rally always provides an enjoyable drive through rural Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire countryside and is a great day out!

10th August - Bowled Over?

  

Our club meeting for August saw 33 people turn up for the Leicester/East Midlands Skittles Challenge at The Greyhound.  Because of the numbers four teams were made up and the end results showed only 3 points between the teams.  Now we don’t want anyone saying that because Leicester had three teams and East Midlands one that we had an unfair advantage even though some East Midlands people made up the Leicester numbers!! Having said that we will concede that we probably should have let them take the award (a very smart certificate with both Logos on it) but don’t tell them that!
  

The evening included a very acceptable finger buffet from The Greyhound (thanks Jenny for organising it) and seriously we thank so many East Midlands people for making the effort to come and join us for a great evening. 

Next month Ray Newell is coming to give us one of his famous talks on the MMOC – not to be missed and with more food.  We are spoiling you!

Sunday 24 July - MADMOG Rally at Rufford Abbey

  

On a bright sunny summer's morning some of our members made their way to Rufford Abbey, Nottinghamshire, for the annual Mansfield and District Morris Owners Group Rally.  There was an excellent turn out with over 55 Morrises on display and members met up with friends from several branches from around the country.  The MMOC Young Members Register turned up with lots of enthusiasm - some travelling from as far as Cardiff and Aylesbury!  It was also good to see a few other classics proudly on display. 



Rufford Abbey Country Park is always a popular venue and the cars and Black Diamond Brass Band certainly got lots of attention.

Wednesday 13 July - Club Car Run


Not quite a mile of Morrises - but almost!

Branch members turned out in force for our second car run of the season and we were delighted to welcome several new faces and cars for the evening.  Jenny and Steve had sorted out a mystery route for us to follow which took us through the glorious countryside and attractive villages of north leicestershire.  On our ride we passed many smiling people, both old and young, who waved and wished us well as we drove along in a Morris convoy.  We stopped half way through the run to get out of our cars and admire a stunning view from Mount St Bernard Abbey over the countryside below and into the distance.  As we continued we were then treated to a fabulous summer sunset only to be followed by an equally fabulous almost full moon rising at the onset of twilight in the summer sky.


Motoring with style!

Once back at our 'clubhouse' - The Greyhound, Botcheston the evening was rounded off with drinks and lots of social natter.  A wonderful evening!


Ready for a drink and a chat

Rempstone Steam and Country Show - 9 & 10 July 2011



Members from both Leicestershire and East Midlands Branches met up again for this annual weekend show.  Rempstone Steam and Country Show is always a fascinating and varied event with lots of steam engines, classic cars and bikes, tractors, traditional fair ground rides, equestrian events in the show arena and lots of other stalls and displays round and about.  Our Branch is a regular at these weekends and we use this opportunity as the main fund raising event for our nominated charity – Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.  On Saturday we had ten Morrises on display around the gazebo with our tombola stall, and on Sunday ten different cars took pride of place.  On both days the weather was great and, as always, our cars attracted a lot of attention! 

 

 

 

This is always a great event, with something for everyone and not far from home. We will certainly be back again next year.

MMOC National Rally at Knebworth - 2 & 3 July
 

The weather was bright, warm and dry and set for a great weekend at Knebworth House.  The Branch set up its gazebo and stand on 'Branch Avenue' and although we couldn’t compete with Mansfield (MADMOG), who won the best stand for the third year running, it was great that so many people used the stand as a focal point for a chat, exchanges about the bargains which had been bought (did you find that elusive spare?) and most importantly a sociable cup of tea or coffee.  That is exactly what the stand is for!  And yes, we are going to buy a set of mugs so people do not have to rinse out and share next
time!


Branch gazebo and stand

Several of our branch members attended the rally over the weekend and we were also joined by friends from the East Midlands branch. 

 
Some of our members who represented our branch 

Saturday was the best day if you were looking for parts in the autojumble whilst Sunday saw more cars arrive and numerous activities in the arena and marquee. Surely the accolade for the furthest travelled must have gone to Richard Mckellar from Melbourne, Australia.  Richard is co author of the splendid book “One in a Million” and his talks about the restoration of his Minor Million were fascinating.  It was also great to see the Young Owners Group so enthusiastic and winning the inter branch challenge – they are, after all, the future of the club.
 

 

Trophy winners - Mike, John and Tony

So did Leicester Branch feature in any of the awards presentations?  We certainly did! Pam Hales won the prize for best fancy dress in her resplendent forties outfit at the “Back to the Forties” party. Husband John won best in class for his superb Series II Traveller. Tony Fennell was “gobsmacked” to win best Series MM in the show against some pretty stiff competition.  He only acquired the car six months ago from club member Brian Green so some credit must also go to him. And finally Mike John won best Series II convertible but had to rapidly return his trophy as he had got the one for Ray Newell’s LCV! Best not to upset Ray!  The correct trophy could not be found so one is being made specially – quite right too!
  

 
Knebworth House and Gardens

Overall a great, sociable and thoroughly enjoyable weekend – here’s to next year!

Getting Married in Style


The happy couple - Cathy & Bruce ...in front of a very shiny and resplendent Minor!

Saturday 18th June was a very special day for proud club members Murray (ex MMOC Leics chairman) and his wife Cris when they saw their daughter Cathy get married to Bruce.  Murray writes:

"Cathy & Bruce planned their entire wedding in the UK whilst living in Germany and all their careful preparations came together perfectly on their wedding day. Cathy arrived in style with a very proud Murray in UDC the Morris Minor, adorned with ribbons and bows! Her bridesmaids were dressed in pink with pretty roses in their hair and the ceremony was held in a huge oak beamed barn. 

A string quartet played as Cathy entered the room on Murray’s arm and Bruce was seen to have a tear in his eye. After the ceremony it was time for Pimms and games on the lawn during a sunny spell. Steve Faulks’ coconut shy, hoopla and skittles were a great success. 

The wedding breakfast was held in the converted pigsty which had been decorated with many metres of garlands and pink ribbons. In the evening the the newlyweds took to the dance floor and ended their first dance with a balloon release, much to everyone’s delight. A hog roast was laid on and a sweet bar continued to give sustenance through the night."

 
Travelling in style - Proud dad Murray and blushing bride Cathy...and of course Morris!

Sunday 5th June 2011 - Pre-War Austin Seven Rally



Several of our members met up with friends from both East Midlands and Mansfield & District (MADMOG) branches for this annual event held at Wollaton Hall, Nottingham.  Our Morrises were greatly out numbered by much earlier models - the pre-war Austin Sevens, and we were very pleased to be able to share in the fun and activities on this day.  Wollaton Hall and Park is a super venue and, as always, there was a great variety of makes and types of vehicles and a large number of stalls in the auto jumble - great for hunting out those elusive bits and pieces.  Even the sun shone - what more could you ask for!

Wednesday 11 May 2011 - Club Car Run

For this month's meeting members met at our 'club house' The Greyhound, Botcheston for our first car run of the season.  We were very pleased to be joined by more new members with their Morrises and after an uncertain start (weather wise) ten cars set off in convoy into the depths of the Leicestershire countryside.  Needless to say we were  delighted when the evening sun shone on us as we made our way through Charnwood Forest and country lanes.  Brilliant yellow fields of rape, hedges full of blossom and drifts of bluebells and cow parsley all added the event - as did the fabulous sunset!  English coutryside at its best!  The sight of our convoy was also clearly enjoyed by the policeman in his 4x4 who nearly landed in a hedge in order to let us get by!  The evening was rounded off with a welcome drink and chat about our cars.  Wonderful!


Waiting to start - wondering where Keith and Bev's car run will take us!

Sunday 8th May 2011 - Morris Minor Day - Crich Tramway Village


A number of Leicester Branch members joined the folks from East Midlands Branch at the annual Morris Minor event at Crich.  The day turned bright and sunny after a cloudy and damp start and there was a good show of cars especially in the parades through the main street – deftly avoiding the trams! The event was quieter this year with fewer cars on display – possibly due to uncertain weather, but those that were there really enjoyed the day.

Sunday 1st May 2011 - Classic Car Show - Catton Hall

Four Leicester club members attended a superb day at Catton Hall Classic Car Show on Sunday 1st May where the weather was hot and sunny with a slight breeze and the array of different cars was fantastic. Mike was in his convertible, Tony took his lowlight and Brian Green was there in his lovely Wolseley 1500 looking resplendent next to Andrew Mepham’s Trafalgar blue two door saloon.



A number of Morrises were on show including three called Molly, Mandy and Milly all lined up next to each other!  A great line up and all great cars!


A highlight of the day was being shown around the house by the owner’s wife and the owner himself presenting trophies. All very friendly and happy.  

 

This was a good show, at a lovely venue and not far from home – definitely one for a return visit next year.

A number of our branch members enjoyed a very interesting visit to the MMOC Headquarters at Derby.  This event was really well attended with members arriving from across the country including one from Scotland!  It was great to meet up with so many Morris Minor enthusiasts, chat to old friends, view a wide variety of cars and search for those elusive parts which only the MMOC seem to have. A brilliant day and 'Congratulations' to the MMOC for the event.

Sunday 20th March 2011 - Classic Car Meet

Two of our members represented the branch at the Four Counties Classic Car & Bike Meet held at The Plough, Ravenstone.  Although this is a small meet there is always a good selection of classic cars present and lots of good stories and experiences shared between those present. At this particular meet there were no less than four Morris Minors!  The sun shone, the company was good and this was a great way to pass a couple of pleasant hours with our cars. What more could you wish for?

Wednesday 9th March 2011 - All Change!

At the annual branch AGM, held at The Greyhound, we elected our committee members for the next year.  Murray Jessop had made the decision to stand down as Chairman after serving the branch in that post since 2003.  His excellent service to the branch was recognised by members who were quick to thank him for his major imput into making our branch so successful.  However, Murray has no intention of leaving us and will still be a regular at our branch events and meetings and reporting back on MMOC matters being the Area Co-ordinator for the East Midlands.  Mike John was elected as our new Chairman and he will also continue to serve as Branch Treasurer.  (For a full list of committee members see
Branch Committee in the About Us section).

Wednesday 9th February 2011 - Mystery Objects!

Part of our monthly club meeting was spent doing a 'Mystery Objects' challenge.  There were two sets of feely bags each one  containing a different object which could only be investigated by touch. Cris had a sewing theme and the ladies did well.  However, John Hales did very well in guessing all but one of the contents. For those that thought otherwise one of the items was not a chicken fillet! John’s car themed bags were much harder to guess despite the fact that we are supposedly car enthusiasts. Great fun was had by all!

Wednesday 12th January 2011 - Crumbs!!

For our club meeting this month Cris very kindly came up with a novel quiz. Cryptic clues were given out and all the answers were names of biscuits. So who knew their biscuits? Why, it was Julie and John! And here they are receiving their prize.
