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.
The West of England Area Lunch was held at the lovely Georgian coaching inn, The Methuen Arms in Corsham, Wiltshire, on Sunday 22nd March.
The Methuen Arms was built around the remains of a 14th century nunnery, converted into a brewery and coaching inn in 1608.
A good turnout of WOC members from the Lincolnshire area, gathered together on Sunday 1st March and enjoyed a superb lunch at the Healing Manor Hotel.
The hotel is a stunning country house situated in 36 acres of parkland on the outskirts of Grimsby, Lincolnshire. The food was absolutely excellent and some members tried the crispy battered Whitby haddock, which was huge. Members also arrived in a 1951 Wolseley 6/80 and a 1955 Austin A90.
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.
Lancashire Wolseley Owners Club members enjoyed a great meal on Sunday 15th March at the Assheton Arms in Downham.
A lovely sunny day, everyone had a good run there from their homes and we were given a superb table in the restaurant in a cosy side room there. The fish was delicious and others enjoyed traditional roasts of the day plus some very nice desserts.
