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 12th May   Sunday the12th of May and we’ve just finished the Holmeswood run and what a cracker it was.

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…

New Year New Venue

ALEX GRAHAM captured the overwhelming turnout of bikes and riders for the Northwest Section’s first event of the new year. The Northwest Section held its first event of the year at a new venue.

It was a cold and dry January day but that didn’t keep the crowds away, and the turnout of bikes and riders was overwhelming. We filled the marquee and outside I counted 46 bikes, but even that is…
