Junction bike show 16th June 2019 & autojumble

We would like to thank Paul Draper landlord of the Junction Pub in Rainford for once again allowing us to have a bike show in his very large marquee.  The event was well attended but not quite as many as in January, this was probably due to it being father’s day and the unpredictable weather. However, the weather wasn’t too bad and we had riders in and out all day. There was a great variety of bikes on display and our thanks go to all those who attended, as without…

Holmeswood run Sunday 12th May 2019

Holmeswood run 12th May   Sunday the12th of May and we’ve just finished the Holmeswood run and what a cracker it was. I didn’t  accurately count the number of entrants but I estimate between thirty or forty attended on this beautiful sunny day. Kath and Warren had plotted a lovely run down the back lanes  of Lancashire culminating in the lunch stop at one of our favourite venues the Farmers Arms pub in Hilldale. We had a diverse selection of bikes ,each a delight to see . Girder forked machines,…

THE GOOD SAMARITAN

Our North West Section Chairman Alex has also been helping a lady celebrating her 105th birthday. She loved it as can be seen in the VMCC March 2019 Journal. Alex’s letter regarding this is the journal’s Star Letter. Wow, that’s an achievement Alex. I don’t think any of us who knows Alex, is surprised how keen he was to help out this lady celebrate her 105th birthday. As we all know Alex is relentless in all he does. We are extremely lucky to have such a dedicated Chairman in the…

BRING & BUY SALE

The club held a bring & buy sale recently and I attended with my friend Tom, neither of us had been to a bring & buy sale at the club before and didn’t know what to expect.

When we arrived, we were confronted with a large table full of all kinds of items, from jigsaw puzzles to motorcycle parts. Alex had said the theme for the bring & buy sale was tramps, but again…
