Club news


The Senior Citizens’ Party will be held on Saturday 20th January 2018 2pm at Fentham Hall. It will be Afternoon Tea rather than an evening meal.


The place where the Santa Sleigh was going to be kept has fallen through as the people are moving. Does anyone have a place where it can be stored or do you know of anyone or anywhere that it can go?


The speaker will be Jeremy Thornton from the auction house Biddle & Webb. Family & friends are welcome & can bring along an “odd” or interesting item, but it isn't actually a valuation evening. He's talking about his life as an antiques dealer.

Megaride 2017 - 25 June

Sunday 25 June was the Meriden Motorcycle Megaride. The weather was perfect. Cloudy but dry on the field. Music by “The Firm” was excellent as always, as were the “Firebirds”. About 200 motorcycles attended the event with many of them having done the ride-in from Arrow mill.

As soon as the figures are out, we will publish the result. But a great thanks to the committee for organising the event and for all the riders and people from Meriden who attended the event and who raised sponsorship for this event.

Many thanks to all and hopefully see you at our event in 2018.
