Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th brought the close of the show season for West Lancs MG Owners Club! And where better to finish our busy season than at the North West Vintage Rally held in Victoria Park Widnes (opened in 1900 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s diamond anniversary).

We brought 10 cars to the event which consisted of 1 Midget,3 MGF’s,1 MGB,1 MG ZT,1 MGA Coupe,1 MGB-GT and the 2 splendid MG-TC’s along with 14 club members.

This Free admission event has it all from classic cars to a replica Mk2 spitfire along with miniature steam engines,model boats,brass bands,trade and craft stalls with the stars of the show full size working steam engines along with a traditional fun fair and donkey rides for the children.

 Tradition has it that as it’s the last show of the season we all have a bacon bap and below our chef for the day was Noel and his two assistants Jill and Joyce.

The weather on arriving was grey and cloudy but as the morning progressed the sun shone through on numerous occasions bringing lots of visitors to the park admiring the cars with eager children wanting to visit the rides,funfair and sample the ice cream.

And not forgetting the big boys of the show the steam engines and the spitfire.

W.L.MG.O.C would like to thank Halton Borough Council for organising yet another spectacular FREE show and we look forward to supporting it again next year.Also thanks go to Jill,Noel and Geoff for organising our breakfast barm and to Sandy and Dave for the afternoon apple pie and pastries.
