Today the 7th of April saw the W.L.MG.O.C. attending there first mid-month meet of the year. It’s been a long winter and so with the warmer days and lighter nights we all look forward to the next six or seven months of open top motoring with the wind blowing through our hair the sunshine beating down and the chance to breath fresh countryside air to fill the lungs and blow away the cobwebs of winter.


This evenings chosen venue by Jerry Myers (our mid month meet coordinator) is the Red Cat in Crank on the road (B5205) in between Rainford and Billinge

We arrived there at 7.00pm some members came in there everyday cars as there pride and joy was (not out of mothballs yet) but 14 members came in there MG’s and the line up was 3 MGF’s,1 MGTF,1 MGB,1 MGBv8,2 MIDGETS,1 MGB-GT and 1 MGA.

In all 20 members showed up and although the weather was dry there was quite a biting wind in the car park.
