I joined MHVG over 13 years ago, having been introduced by a very good but now, sadly-departed friend. Not being sure of what was expected from new members, my wife, Ann and I tentatively came along to one or two meetings to see what went on. Were we going to be bored stiff by technical stuff? Was our classic up to par? Was there a “bonnets up” mentality? And so on. Well, actually there was none of that. What we found was a very convivial atmosphere with everyone going out of their way to be friendly and interested. There were none of the cliquey groups that can plague clubs, and while the talk was car-related, it certainly did not detract from the experience. And so it is today. Having taken on the job of Social Co Ordinator a couple of years ago, I can reliably say that MHVG offers a well constructed mixture of social and active events with no competition or one upmanship. From the annual Dinner Dance in January through to our Christmas Party (with silly games!) the calendar covers 11 Club Nights, 7 Sunday Road Runs, 2 Mid Week Road Runs, 2 Away Breaks and much, much more. We regularly sit 50 to 80 people at our gatherings .
