BURY MINI CLUB
Home

 

Welcome to the Bury Mini Club Website

                                           THE GENERAL INFORMATION

We meet on the last Thursday of every month at “The Manger” in Bradfield Combust. This public house is on the A134 Bury St Edmunds to Sudbury road, about 4 miles outside Bury. The meetings usually start at about 8.00pm and are very informal and we have the chance to chat over a (soft) drink about our latest upgrades, engine problems, Mini runs, club stands at local events and all other Mini related matters.

We have a trading post where you can sell or buy bits and pieces. 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.

Thanks to the 17 people who turned up to our first meeting of 2014, we have 25 members already this year and a healthy number going to the various shows. If anybody wants a list of the shows we will be attending, please email me and I will send you a copy - if you are not a member of the Club and want to join us, you are more than welcome. A few more events have been added to the page and you can see that not all are Mini shows. If anybody with an “interesting” vehicle wants to join us at, say, Euston Hall rural Pastimes, please email me.  The next club meeting is 27th March 2014 and membership forms are still available (see below) and Suffolk Run entry forms are also available below.

All will be of great value to the Rainbow Ward and thanks to all who bought draw tickets and to those who provided prizes for the draw.

TRADING POST

 


You may be aware that there are a lot of people upset by the increasing size of the so-called MINI - amongst other modern vehicles. Classic and Sports Car magazine have had a number of readers writing in to show photographs of old models that were thought to be big, dwarfed by cars like Nissan Micra’s (yep, they’re not that small). One photograph shows the new MINI Countryman being much larger than the old Volvo Estate, which was thought to be huge.

A gentleman with a bit of time on his hands decided to make a cardboard cut-out of a classic Mini and see if he could fit it in the new Countryman.

He did it - see the link below!   You may not understand the writing but the message is there!!
