Welcome to Bury Mini Club's web site.
Happy New Year for 2024.
Work on the site continues and we are getting there with updates, just a few outdated pics left but good for nostalgia! The update on future events also continues but some have not revealed their 2024 dates yet. If you know of a confirmed date that is noted as provisional on this site, please let me know. We had a few runs to places of interest last year and are hoping to do a few more in 2024. The Go Karting was interesting to say the least and we may try again this year, bruises permitting!
More events are being cancelled, the latest being the London to Brighton run and Euston Rural Pastimes. Such a shame but there we go.
We may try a few cars and coffee mornings if there are a few near and handy but any other ideas, please check on our facebook page and organisers can put their events there.
We will update the future events page as and when we know the dates and a few are on there already.
One Club event you all may want to put in your diaries is the Bury Mini Club Memorial Suffolk Run from Bury to Southwold to take place this year on Sunday 7th July, leaving from the Ram Meadow car park in Bury. More details to follow. We have renamed the event to include the memory of not just Val Butcher but to include Gil and Mary Crosby plus Stephen Proctor, all past members who are sadly no longer with us.
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 and exercise our Minis!
We will be meeting at the Risby Crown and Castle (confirmed recently with landlord Wayne) on the last Thursday of each month except January, June (fish and chip run), November (the ten pin bowling night) and December (we have the Christmas meal on a Sunday before Christmas). We will meet for the first time in 2024 on Thursday 29th February.
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 2024, see the details below.
The website needs updating but apologies from the editor for not keeping it more up to date. With the new 2024 season upon us, a concerted effort will be made to make the site current and updated regularly when all the 2024 events are known.
For the most up to date comments you can look at our facebook page "Bury Mini Club" and this will have pictures and other information on it.
As previously stated, we will repeat last year's BMC run from Bury St Edmunds to Southwold, to be known as the BMC Memorial Suffolk Run, and this should take place on Sunday 7th July 2024. Again we have to wait as the owner of the land on which we park is selling up and we have to get in touch with the new owner, when the sale is done, to make sure we can park there. We made £600 split between the Suffolk Accident Rescue Service and the East Anglian Air Ambulance last year, so thanks to all.
If you are interested in coming on this years run, please let the Club know via the contacts page or the facebook group. We are also hoping to have runs to some places of interest including the Transport Museum in Ipswich and as already said, we will have another go-kart Sunday at Red Lodge if there is enough interest. We have a provisional date for this and a confirmed date of Sunday 16th June for a visit to the Aircraft Museum at Flixton.
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.
The third picture shows a few of us at Cars by the Lake in 2018. This event is now no longer held.
2024 pics will be posted here later, but they are few and far between! Some are already on the facebook page.
As stated, the BMC run mentioned above 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. Any prize donations are gratefully accepted and we always thank our main sponsor, Newton Commercial, who donate a £150 voucher.
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.
