York Centre – May Issue 2021

Well at last there is some ‘light at the end of the tunnel’ and we might be able to meet again in a month or two. Certainly, those of us here in Yorkshire are starting to make arrangements .to be active again. Some of us have already made plans for the popular Newby Hall show, at Ripon in mid-July. The vintage enthusiasts of the 24/39 Group are busy ‘fettling’ their vehicles, and Bob and  Beth Walker went out for a test drive in their “Cream Cracker” F1 Magna  after getting their second Covid Jab –see photo.

The South Natter have been busy. To support the Drive–it-Day, Denise and Malcolm Perry organised a run through South Yorkshire and the Peak District National Park , with five other Natter Members in a selection of MGs. They stopped at Langsett Dam reservoir and a tea break at the Old Hall Hotel and Tea Room, where suitable outdoor seating was available. They were joined by Malcolm Dodd a new member and his MGB Roadster. Photo shows the group led by Malcolm’s  YB. Marjorie and Julian Rogan South Yorkshire Members who have moved north took their MGB to Beningborough Hall, near York.

In the meantime, here are a couple of photos, taken at Beningborough Hall in 201, and at the start of the Dales Run at the Bay Horse, Skipton. It is hoped the run will take place this year.

There was no news of Members of the other Natters organising anything. West Yorkshire look to be planning their first Natter meet on Tuesday 22nd June and no doubt the other Natters will be looking to meet up around the same time, and then we can all get back together with our MGs.
