HOW MUCH DOES MEMBERSHIP COST ?

Absolutely nothing!!

If you can only make a few meetings every year, that’s fine by us.

OUR HISTORY

Kilsby MG Club was planned in late 1993 with the assistance of the late Phil Ritcher of the Midland Centre. Our objective was to provide a local natter for the East Midlands Rugby/Northampton/Daventry area at a time when the nearest natters were in South Leicestershire, North Bucks and West Midlands. The first meeting was held in February 1994. Founder members Terry Baulch & Rick Willoughby are still associated with the club. A combined MGCC/MGOC club from the start, in 2001 Terry expanded our involvement by becoming our representative for the pre 1955 MG Octagon Car Club.

In January 2006, we changed meeting night from the first Monday to the first Tuesday to avoid clashes with bank holidays, also to give ourselves a bit more room at the pub by avoiding the Monday skittles & darts nights.

From our inception up until September 2010 we met at the Red Lion in Kilsby. When Tom the landlord of the Lion retired, we decided to relocate, and now meet at the George Hotel, Kilsby

We are pleased to have been awarded the MGCC Midland Centre ”Natter of the Year” in 2001 & 2008
