This year’s Annual General Meeting will be held at The Olde House, Newbold, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S40 4RN on Saturday 13th August at 4pm. Always a lively meeting and this is your chance to have your say about your club.
For those wishing to make a weekend of it we plan to visit The Great British Car Journey museum on Saturday at around 10am (followed by the AGM at 4pm.) https://greatbritishcarjourney.com/
Then on Sunday The Chesterfield Motorfest to include French Car Day, Americana and a whole host of other old and interesting vehicles will fill the town centre streets. Our friends in the SIMCA and Alpine Renault clubs will join us there too. It’s free to attend. Contact Mick Ward firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can’t join us for the AGM then just come along to one or both of the car events planned.
For those wanting to stay overnight at the hotel, COULD I SUGGEST YOU BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOMS ASAP. Some of us will be booking in on the Friday night too. The rooms are newly refurbished and I’m told they are selling out fast. From £60 per night plus breakfast. If you book directly through their website you can expect 20% off the evening meals. That's what their site says. When booking please enter that you are booking as part of the MATRA Car Club in the comments section. https://www.oldehousepub.co.uk/
Please let me know which nights you are booked for and how many of you are joining us for dinner and on which nights so as I can arrange for us to be seated as a group in the dining room.
See you all there.
Update: Chesterfield Town Council has cancelled Motorfest, so the French Car Day has been moved to Staveley Hall, S43 3TN, a grade 2 listed building with extensive grounds near Chesterfield. All other arrangements remain as previous.
Club members will be attending one day to be confirmed. Parking in the ground of the stately home with the option to join either the Jaguar or Mercedes club. See website for more details.
The organisers have decided to hold this event after all. . https://www.greatnorthclassiccarshow.com Places are now available to book. Due to the lack of interest and the steep rise in hotel costs due to the event clashing with the Great North run, the Club have decided not to have an official presence at this event
