GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB
March 2017 Newsletter No 99

Brian welcomed Members to the meeting including one prospective new member John Collins, who informed us he had an MGB Roadster. Trev immediately warmed to this news. Brian also took the opportunity to remind members of the tools that the club owns and displayed the inventory prepared by Trev. These are available for members to use free of charge.

The first half of the evening was devoted to a presentation by Linda Diggory from the Willow Trust, our chosen charity for this year’s Cotswold Caper. Linda explained that the Trust was established in 1989 and that it operates both its fully equipped purpose-built boats Leonard Matchan and Spirit of Freedom II from Saul Junction. The boats are designed to provide access for all – whatever their disability – however profound, from April to October. The Trust is self-funding and does not charge their guests for the trip. It is estimated to cost around £15 per guest to come on board and roughly £450 to take one of the boats out for the day.

Each boat has a professionally trained Willow Trust skipper and a crew of three or four volunteers from a pool of 90 people. After departing from Saul the trip normally goes down to Purton, where they stop for a break and to allow their guests to get off the boat if they wish. They then return to Saul, getting back some time around 3pm.

Linda showed us a number of photos of guests on the boat and it was clear they all had a wonderful time on board with a chance to enjoy some freedom from their normal environment. Last year they had over 400 groups on board and from the list of charities they deal with, a number of them are also charities we have supported on previous Capers.

 It was also mentioned that the Trust run a Cream Tea Cruise one Saturday each month during their operating season. This is for members of the public who wouldn’t otherwise qualify to come on board. It was felt this might well be something the club could put on the diary for next year.

Brian thanked Linda for a very informative talk and we then took a break.

After the break, the raffle was then held with a number of prizes on offer.

Sue unfortunately could not attend the meeting as she was ill, so the top table was just inhabited by Brian & Laurence, standing in for Adrian.

Geoff Bartlett circulated the menu for the Sunday Lunch on 19th March at the Red Heart, Blaisdon - arrival 12.30 for a 1pm sit down.

The Wheel Nuts event at St. Roses on Sunday 7th May was mentioned, but unfortunately this clashes with the Cotswold Caper Rehearsal run for the marshalls on the day. We only have 2 names so far for St. Roses – John Child and Rob Cotterill.

Laurence asked if there were any additions to the list of those wanting to go to The Annual Vintage Transport show at South Cerney on Sunday 6th August, with 1 name added after the meeting.

He then asked if there were any more people wanting to go to the Tetbury Car Show on Sunday 3rd September, but there were no further additions.

In Ken Coyles’ absence, Laurence read out details of the Highnam Motor Show on 10th & 11th June, which Ken is keen to attend and that he had secured some free passes to the event.

Members were also reminded about the recent email regarding the Find it, Fix it, Flog it programme looking for possible members interested in taking part.

John and Tony Child asked if their run could be brought forward a week from 22nd to 15th August to avoid a clash.

Brian reminded members that the next meeting is the AGM and asked for any nominations for new Committee members beforehand. Myn volunteered to look at the accounts ahead of the meeting.

Also Rob Cotterill mentioned that he & Myn will be organising the first evening run of the year on Tuesday 25th April.

Gethin left little slips of paper on some chairs advertising his “Cotswold Canter” on Tue 27th June – a “25 mile Cruise in the Cotswolds” starting at Severn Springs at 6:30 pm. Menu to follow.

Also there was Info from Trev about a  Balloon Fiesta at Cotswold Airport – Kemble on Sat 20th May £5 entry from noon onwards – Classic Cars and Balloons.

 
The meeting closed at 10pm.
