Introduction

The Epsom Area MGOC is one of the largest and most active Areas within the MG Owners’ Club. Established in 1981, it has grown steadily over the years and now has over 250 individual members, young and old.

 

Monthly Meetings

We hold monthly meetings on the first Thursday of each month commencing at 7:30pm.  At the meeting you can pick up a copy of the Octagonal News, our monthly newsletter, which contains articles of interest to members, advertisements and a list of activities planned for the current and future months, so that you have ample time to plan your own diary.

 

The first hour of the monthly meeting is usually spent catching up on what has been happening, picking brains on mechanical problems, or just having a friendly conversation over a drink or two. At each meeting a part of the evening is given over to talks from a guest speaker, quizzes, competitions, food nights, wine tasting and many more. We sometimes hold a mid month natter at a specific hostelry at which you can enjoy a meal or snack, or just a drink with other members in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

Car Events

As a car club, the catalyst for our involvement is our MGs. We regularly attend shows, organise runs and visit places of interest. These include events outside our own locality in Wales, Ireland, the Channel Islands, France and hunts, driving tests and take us to events organised by other Areas and MG Clubs.

 

Social Events

We use our MGs for some purely social gatherings, visiting restaurants, vineyards, taking us to rambles, skittles and ten pin bowling, the list is endless. The year starts with the Annual Dinner Dance and Awards in January where we get the chance to air our best togs. There is much to enjoy and the social occasions give you the opportunity to meet and get to know other Epsom members.

 

Charity Events

The Epsom Area has a continuing policy of charitable fundraising. We support many local charitable events throughout the year by putting on a display of members MGs at fetes and other local fundraising events.  From time to time we target and support specific local charities and organise events to raise funds for them.  The Children’s Trust at Tadworth, the Diamond Riding Centre at Carshalton and most recently, St. Raphael’s Hospice in Cheam, have been the beneficiaries of members fundraising activity.  We have also made donations to many local charities nominated by our members.

 

We hope that this resume about the Epsom Area will encourage you to come along and join us — you will find a warm welcome awaiting you.  The annual subscription is £10 per couple which includes the mailing of your newsletter should you be unable to attend the monthly meeting.

Could you donate bone marrow?
One of our members would like to ask whether you have thought of being a bone marrow donor. Our member has very personal reasons for making this appeal so I’ve checked out the details which are on two websites:
www.blood.co.uk
www.anthonynolan.org/
The telephone numbers are 0845 7 711 711 and 020 7284 1234 respectively, or just check with your Doctor’s surgery. 

The Blood Transfusion service has an age limit of 49 and the Anthony Nolan Trust a limit of 40 but please, please, don't just think about it do it. 

Thank you for anybody's life you might save.
