Welcome to Bury Mini Club's web site.
Some serious work needed! will be done in 2022! p
A start has been made, on this the 1st January 2022, with an update of the 2022 events as far as I know them at the moment. Many are provisional, as we still don't know what Boris will advise us to do and a lot of organisers are reluctant to commit as yet. Bury Mini Club will hold a Val Butcher Suffolk Run 2022 from Bury to Southwold and currently this is booked for Sunday 19th June to avoid as many other event as possible. Watch this space!!
For those who are organising events and would like them noted on this site, please contact me (details on the Contacts page) as we need to get out if possible and exercise our Minis!
The following facts will remain on this page and links to the events should show if they are still on or not.
Please keep safe everyone.
We meet on the last Thursday of each month except January, June (we meet in the car park for a fish and chip run), November (the ten pin bowling night) and December (we have the Christmas meal here on a Sunday before Christmas) 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 2022, see the details below.
The website needs updating but apologies from the editor for not keeping it more up to date, but events take different turns every few days it seems. With the new 2022 season upon us, a concerted effort will be made to make the site current and updated regularly when the 2022 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.
We will hope to repeat last year's BMC run from Bury St Edmunds to Southwold, to be known as the Val Butcher Suffolk Run, and this should take place on Sunday 19th June 2022, if we are allowed. All is booked ready.
If you are interested in coming on the run, please let the Club know via the contacts page or the facebook group.
We will also try to re-arrange the talk by Andy Mason from the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service.
We will leave the pictures below for the time being and the first two pictures below show (most) of us preparing for the 2018 Easter run at Ram Meadow. Will there be a ECMC run this year?
The third picture shows a few of us at Cars by the Lake in 2018. Will there be one this year? I think not.
2021 pics will be posted here later, but they are few and far between! Some are already on the facebook page.
The BMC run mentioned above and called the Val Butcher Suffolk Run, will donate any money made from the draw etc. to the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and The East Anglian Air Ambulance - we hope we won't ever need them, but they do a great job and rely on donations.
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.
The latest updates to the site are noted below with the date of the update, what page and a summary of what the update is. Updates will be left on for a while.
