Our Branch

Who are we?

We are a lively and friendly group of Morris Minor owners and friends who live in or near to Leicestershire.

What do we do?

We enjoy driving, socialising and chatting about our cars and try to help each other with any Morris queries and projects.  Between us we have a wealth of experience and knowledge which we are always pleased to share with others.  We meet regularly each month when we welcome new members and arrange several events.

When do we meet?

We meet at 8:00 pm on the second Wedesday of each month.

Where do we meet?

At the The Greyhound, Main Street, Botcheston LE9 9FF. 

What events do we organise?

We have our own fun quiz nights, summer drives, skittles evenings, guest speakers, barbeques and meals.  We also hold two rallies each year.

Where do we have our rallies?

For our main rally we choose a different and interesting venue each year.  These have included: 

  * Abbey Pumping Station, Museum of Science and Technology - Leicester
  * Great Central Railway - Quorn
  * Shepshed Water Mill - Shepshed
  * Stonehurst Family Farm and Motor Museum - Mountsorrel

The other main events in which we are involved is the Rempstone Steam and Country Fair - Wymeswold, where we join up with the East Midlands MMOC branch for a weekend rally.  Here we have a club stand and display about eight cars each day.  During this event we raise money for the 'Rainbows Children's Hospice' and we are very pleased to support such a good cause.

We also attend the annual MMOC National Rally and meet up with our friends in several other branches from around the country.  Members and their cars have also represented the MMOC in the Lord Mayor's Show - London on different years.
