The club was formed some twenty five years ago by about a dozen enthusiasts, most of whom are still members. Since then the club has grown steadily to a membership of some forty (membership being couples or individuals) which means that we have over sixty people and forty five cars ranging from MGA to MGTF via B’s and C’s.

As a club our philosophy is “Enjoy using your MG” although there are plenty in the club with technical and mechanical expertise should advice be needed. Our main interests are social activities involving the use of our cars as often as possible. However in winter months we tend towards pub games, quizzes, skittles and so on rather than venture out in the cold and wet, though some members do use their cars as daily drivers.

Our programme for the year is set at the AGM in January and apart from the usual monthly meetings we list about twenty events in which we hope to participate and others are added as the year progresses. Events vary from Classic Car Shows, weekends away at various club runs, a Treasure Hunt, exploration of the local countryside by car and on foot, to occasional trips abroad to European events. No one goes to everything, but there is a good selection to choose from and other members to go with.

Monthly meetings are usually held on the third Thursday each month, at 8pm, although at preset were are without a permanent meeting place (Please telephone to confirm meeting venue) There are about four occasions during the year when we move to other venues for specific events and so it’s best to phone to make sure rather than just turn up. During the summer months a ‘Pub Run’ is organised for the first Thursday in the month and we drive a reasonable distance to a variety of interesting hostelries, usually situated in scenic locations, for a pub meal.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly club and make all visitors welcome. If you live in the Coventry and Warwick area why not drop in to see us some time.
