THAMES VALLEY REGION NEWSLETTER
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MEMBERS!
A reminder that our meetings are on the last Wednesday of the month at The Crooked Billet, London Road, Hook, Hants, RG27 9EH from 8pm. All members are very welcome, you don’t have to own a Mini Cooper – any mini will do! It doesn’t matter if you turn up without your mini either….just come along for a drink and a chat with other members. If you have any technical queries about your minis then there is bound to be somebody at the meeting who can help you.
We had a record number of members attending our Christmas Dinner at The Crooked Billet! We had a lovely meal in familiar surroundings but above all…..great company!
Hopefully, we’ll be having space for 15 cars on our club stand at Brooklands Mini Day 24th March 2019.
“All types of Mini (including the modern BMW) are invited to this annual event, so expect displays in all areas of the Museum site. From the oldest to the newest, this year’s event will see some of the earliest examples nestling among hundreds of Minis and their variations including vans and pickups. As always Test Hill will be in action (subject to weather).
There will be a variety of trade stands offering mini parts, spares and memorabilia.” https://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/whats-on/brooklands-mini-day
