North – Jeff Marsden

The March Natter was at the Tempest Arms and we all had a fish ‘n’ chips supper, followed by the usual reminders of the forthcoming events. Post meal we had a general conversation about our MG’s and the diary.

East – Jill Thornton

The March Natter was well attended and a game of steal the parcel was very entertaining, might work better if all the tickets went into the hat, but nobody seemed to mind!!

We went through the various upcoming events, May will be a busy month with the Cavalcade, Wolds Way, and the evening social run [Thursday 30th May]

A reminder in respect of the evening social runs, we have changed the start point to the School Lane car park in Beverley HU17 9LS AND TAKES PLACE LAST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH

We’ll hopefully get some better weather this year after a soggy 2023 which has continued into 2024!

Vale of York – James Thornborough

The Vale Of York natter continues to attract a strong attendance, with 26 likeminded MG

enthusiasts enjoying a social day out. The March lunch meet had plenty to discuss, with the MGCC

Centenary Cavalcade, being chief among them. Terry Hartley, 24/39 Natter Leader, gave a briefing on the latest situation for the Yorkshire Leg, James Thornborough the designated focal point for Yorkshire entry applications, reported numbers received to date for; Day 1, May 9th [Richmond to Harrogate], Day 2 May 10th [Harrogate to Hull], and those attending both days. The VoY Natter also looked forward to ‘Drive It Day’ opn April 21st. Members were encouraged to buy the NSPCC Drive It Day charity plaques ahead of the event, which would raise much needed charity funds for children.

South – Rob Mitchell

Hopefully by now, everyone has their cars disconnected from trickle chargers, fresh air inserted in tyres and otherwise all prepared for the season ahead. Members of the South Yorkshire group remain busy as always and there are nine official rums set in the Natter calendar to attend, between now and September.

The first of these is the Daffodil Run , on 14th April. This always attracts members both local and far and wide. This year 55 cars were proudly waved off from the Stocksbridge start-point under the new Centre flag. More details and review of the

event will feature in the next edition of Safety Fast.

For Drive-it Day, cars will start in Midgley, to take in 47 miles of the region’s stunning scenery.

Our outgoing Natter Leader, Mike Breedon presented Norrie and Karen McCredie with the Stross Trophy in recognition of their

considerable contributions to the SY Natter.
