Annual Post Christmas Lunch, Ferraris Country House Hotel - Sunday 20th January 2020

MMOC Ferraris Lunch - January 2020 (12)

Always an enjoyable event coming, as it does, after the excesses of Christmas and New Year are out of the way, this year saw 56 members and friends get together for an excellent meal superbly organised as always by member Shirley. Everyone was welcomed by our Chairman Terry Traylor who wished everybody well for the forthcoming year and season. The menu was excellent and varied and soon everyone was chatting about what they had been doing over winter and the events they planned to attend during the year. It was great to see friends from MMOC North East Lancashire Branch and Blackpool Vehicle Preservation Group as well as members who are not always able to attend Branch meetings come together for this annual event which is always eagerly anticipated. As usual the event drew to a close with a happy group photo!

Manchester Branch Rally, Museum of Transport – Sunday 23rd February 2020

Man rally 11

Over 50 Morris Minors attended this year’s 24th Manchester Branch Rally at the Museum of Transport at Cheetham Hill.  The first event of the year for many and indoors too - very welcome in February!  The Lancashire Branch MMOC was represented by several Branch members with their cars.  It was a great show - as always. On offer were bacon rolls and hot drinks etc. at the cafe plus free rides in the morning and afternoon on vintage buses around Manchester. There were also stalls selling spares and motoring memorabilia and, as usual, a warm and friendly welcome from the Manchester Branch members.  

Two cars belonging to our Branch members won first and third prizes and Lancashire Branch members are proud to have won first prize four times out of the last six rallies at Manchester.

 Morris Minor Owners Club
"Our aims are simply to promote the preservation and use of the postwar Morris Minor, 1.6 million of which were built between 1948 and 1971.
The MMOC exists to unite these people who have a fondness of these loveable jellymoulds, and those people who still use them as everyday transport."
