The Francis Drake memorial wasn't quite what Steve and Marion were expecting.

The chap driving that old banger must be Quackers!
Looks like Steve's mascot has escaped
The Car Park Attendant at the SS Great Britain is certainly not ducking his duties

GLOUCESTERSHIRE MG OWNERS CLUB

July 2019 Newsletter No 125

As both Rob and Sue could not attend the meeting, it fell to Laurence to run it, assisted by Keith. Laurence said he thought it was his penance for missing the April AGM meeting!

Our Speaker for the evening was Nigel Warwick, assisted by colleague Paul, from Severn Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service. This is a free out of hours service delivering blood, human tissue & other essential medical items between NHS facilities in Hereford & Worcester, Gloucestershire & North Wiltshire.

Similar to the Air Ambulance and RNLI, they rely on raising their own funds and do not receive any Government Funding. The service costs around 1,000 per week to run.

Nigel gave some examples of the kind of things they do. Delivering diagnostic brain scan CDs, breast milk to special Baby Care units, emergency medicines and patient notes between hospitals and even false teeth! They have 8 BMW bikes, 6 with blue lights & sirens. They are often ex-Police bikes and cost around 16,500. Each year they cover an average of 100,000 miles for 3,500 callouts. They get through lots of tyres and the bikes are serviced every 6,000 miles.

Riders must be over 30, IAM or RoSPA members and have hazard management training. They also have blue light training, but these are only allowed to be used if sanctioned by the hospital. They are on call 365 days per year; during the week from 7pm to 7am and all day at weekends and on Public Holidays. Jobs are arranged through a coordinator, who takes calls from Hospitals and other Medical Establishments. They will then allocate the jobs and monitor progress through text messages and blue-tooth enabled helmets.

There are 30 groups throughout the UK & Southern Ireland, that can link up for a relay delivery e.g. on one occasion 8 groups were in involved in a delivery from Dumfries to Porton Down taking 7 hours overall.

At the end of the talk, Nigel & Paul gave interested members a look round one of their bikes, which was in the car park.

After the break, Laurence thanked Janet for organising the visit to the Watercress Line for the D-Day Landing 75th Anniversary event and to Dave & Chris for their first Evening Run and managing to get quite a few us lost after missing a turn! Teresa thanked Laurence for organising the SS Great Britain visit.

Everyone involved in this year's Caper was also thanked for helping to make it another very successful event. The total amount raised is expected to be in the region of 5,200, which is exceptional given we had fewer entrants than last year. The feedback has been circulated by Laurence and it was clear the majority was very favourable.

Laurence then explained that nominations for next year's Caper Charity will be needed by the Committee by the August meeting in order that they can narrow the list down to 3 if necessary and give presentations at the September meeting.

The upcoming events were then run through by Laurence with a Classic Car show at Newark Park on Sunday 14thJuly and a Pre-War Prescott Garden Party and Hill Climb on Sunday 20th.

We then have our Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Sunday 21stat Minchinhampton Common and Dave & Liz’s Evening Run on Wednesday 24thJuly.

There is a Classic & Performance Parade at Castle Combe on Sunday 28thJuly and we will be attending the South Cerney Steam Fair on Sunday 4thAugust.

Myn gave details of their run on Tuesday 20thAugust and Andy outlined his run to be held on Tuesday 5thSeptember.

Laurence then asked for volunteers to organise the Sunday Lunches through the Winter Season and several slots were filled. We still need volunteers for the November and March Lunches.

There were several pieces of motoring equipment for members to look at donated by Adrian Smith, who used to be a member. He wanted them to be given a new home. Also a range of Car Magazines still in their wrappers were brought along by Keith, who had been contacted by someone who wanted to dispose of them.

Finally, Laurence mentioned that the Caption Competition has been restarted with a new photo and will run for 2 months.

Thanks to Jane for taking the notes in Sue's absence!
