Welcome to Bury Mini Club's web site.
We meet on the last Thursday of each month except January, June (we meet in the car park for the fish and chip run), November (the ten pin bowling night) and December (we have the Christmas meal here on a Sunday before Christmas - 13th December this year) at "The Manger" public house in Bradfield Combust.
This fine old public house is on the A134 Bury St Edmunds to Sudbury road and is about 4 miles outside Bury. The pub has been under new management from 2019 and you may want to book a meal before our meetings. Everybody is very welcoming to us. Details of what is available and general information about the pub is on their website www.themanger.co.uk.
The meetings usually start at about 8.00pm and are very informal. We have the chance to chat over a (soft) drink about our latest upgrades, engine problems, Mini runs, club stands at local events and any other Mini related matters.
We have a "Trading Post" section on this site where you can sell or buy bits and pieces or whole cars! Advertising is at no cost to you. Click on the trading post page to see what's there.
If you have an interest in the car and want to think about joining before committing, just turn up at the next meeting or event to parade your pride and joy, along with the rest of us.
If you are thinking about joining in 2020, see the details below.
The website is as up to date as it can be at present and apologies from the editor for not keeping it more up to date. Now that the new 2020 season is upon us, a concerted effort will be made to make the site current and updated regularly when this years events are known.
For the most updated remarks you can look at our facebook page "Bury Mini Club" and this will have pictures and other information on it.
Suffolk Run 2020
No Suffolk run as such in 2020 but there may be a run from Bury St Edmunds to the coast in one of the Summer months. We need to make sure there are no roadworks on the route and this is always a problem with a pre-typed up route book. Keep checking on this web site and the facebook page.
No Mini in the Park this year, no London Motor show, no Boadicea run, no Bury Motor show. Sadly there are few people left who are prepared to spend the hours and hours of work in organising these events. We must be thankful to those who do still put time in to organise the events we do attend.
The first two pictures below show (most) of us preparing for the 2018 Easter run at Ram Meadow.
The third picture shows a few of us at Cars by the Lake in 2018. 2019 pics will be posted here but are already on the facebook page.
Bury Mini Club - A Small, Local, Welcoming Mini Club with regular meets. Events include the Suffok Run and meets on the last Thursday of every month.
