Local MG Club attend Lydiate classic car and bike show
This Sunday the 3rd of July West Lancs MG Owners Club attended a local show the “Lydiate Classic Car and Bike Show” which is in its 9th year and is also a firm favourite with the members who show off their classic MG’s and have supported this show for quite a number of years.
The show is held on the field just behind the parish hall on southport road virtually opposite the famous scotch piper public house which incidentally (was built around an oak tree in the 14th century and boasts the fact that it is the oldest pub in lancashire and is well worth a visit).
The show had a number of bric-a-brac and auto-jumble stalls with refreshments served in the parish hall along with the mandatory ice-cream van. Admission price is £2 adults with free entry to under 16’s and is open from 10.00 till 16.00
with the proceeds going to Cancer Research UK. And with over £3,235 raised last year it is a very well attended local event.
A few of the members discussing the trials and tribulations of owning a MG.
This year W.L.MG.O.C brought along 8 cars which consisted of 2 RV8’s,1 MGF,1 MGTF,1 Midget,2 MGB-GT’s and 1 MGA along with 13 members.
The weather was quite kind to us this year as not a drop of rain fell and although the morning was a little chilly with sunshine and cloud the afternoon turned to full sunshine and was a most enjoyable affair for the exhibitors and the public who came along to admire the 200 plus cars on show.
And of course the day would not be complete without our powwow in the wig-wam of love were the members gather to feast on their sandwiches and drinks whilst seeking a little shade from the afternoon sunshine.
