Members from the North West, Cumbria and North East met for a chat followed by a two or three course meal on Sunday 22nd March at The Morritt.
The Morritt Country House Hotel & The Garage Spa, at Greta Bridge, offered a relaxed country-house atmosphere in the North Pennine Hills near Barnard Castle and Durham City. A great meet up place for members from Cumbria and the North East.
After a selection of starters, members enjoyed Belly Pork, Roast Beef, Fish & Chips, with profiteroles, cheese board or cheese cake for pudding.
Members attended the fourth Annual General Meeting (AGM) of The Wolseley Owners Club, which was held on Sunday 26th April 2015, at The Heritage Motor Centre Motor Museum, in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Four members arrived in their superb classics – two stunning Wolseley 6/110’s, one making its first trip out since 1999, a recently fully restored Austin 1800 and an elegant Rolls Royce Silver Spirit II. There were many excellent classics to view on the car parks at Gaydon, being that it was ‘Drive it Day’ and members enjoyed visiting the Museum prior to the meeting and having a look around at all the cars. There was also a Collectors fair going on inside the Centre, with many interesting items on view. It was a very enjoyable day.
Over the weekend of 28-29th March the Wolseley Owners Club attended the Practical Classics Restoration Show at the NEC, actively stripping a Series III - 14/60.
On the club stand, we had member Chris’s 1960's Hornet on, which featured at the Restoration show in early 2014 and has now had more work undertaken on it by Chris. Club Officer Charlie had his stunning restored 1930's Hornet on the stand and new members Nathan and Emma had their restored elegant 1940's 14/60 on the stand, which has featured in the film 'Yanks'. Club Officer Nick also had his restoration 14/60 on the stand and the team - Nathan, David, Membership Director, Charlie, Nick, Phillip, Chairman and Chris worked on it over the weekend, stripping it, ready for paint spraying next week. It was great to see more new members joining the club.
