We are your local MG Owners’ Club catering for enthusiasts, owners or even just admirers of the MG marque. We have no prejudice as to age, colour, model or style of MG, providing it’s wearing the badge it fits.
ATHELHAMPTON GARDEN PARTY & PICNIC
Sunday 18 August 2024
Our big annual event, our Garden Party and Picnic at Athelhampton House took place last year on Sunday 13 August attracting 120 cars and raising £2,000 for our two charities – full report and photographs on the News page of this website. The 2024 event will take place on Sunday 18 August – full details to follow.
ABOUT 1020 . . .
The classic cars owned by our members range from a pre-war J2 through several TDs, a YB and hordes of MGBs up to an SV supercar plus modern MGFs and TFs as well as MG3s and all-electric MG4s and everything in between. We also welcome Midgets and Sprites with open arms. Our attitude is ‘Your MG is your passport’.
We are an autonomous club within the national MG Owners’ Club and, as such, are designated 1020 (region 10 area 20). You do not have to be a member of the national club to join us, but there are many benefits and the club is very supportive of its members.
At club nights, we provide a variety of entertainment with guest speakers, film shows, skittles and quizzes as well as an annual Pride of Ownership evening. There is also the opportunity at club nights to sign up for various activities and outings.
Our four seasonal road runs are extremely popular and provide members with even more opportunities to enjoy their cars and make new friends. We also attend local car shows with a club stand and organise a variety of social activities including coach trips to regional attractions.
Each year we host a major regional gathering for MGs. In 2022 this was staged at the Sammy Miller Museum near New Milton and was attended by almost 100 MGs from across the south. The event raised £1,500 for our two local charities; Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and Macmillan Caring Locally.
As a member of 1020 you receive a monthly email newsletter, which won the National MG Owners’ Club award for the best club newsletter in 2012 and 2020. It will keep you up to date with all the events that we will be supporting both locally and further afield during the year.
You are welcome to come along to a club night to get some idea of our activities. Should you wish to join us, the annual family membership fee is £10, which includes children up to the age of 18. Membership also gives access to discounts from local parts and service suppliers, as listed in the newsletter, on production of a current membership card.
OUR CLUB MEETINGS ARE ON THE FIRST MONDAY OF EACH MONTH AT HAMWORTHY SPORTS CLUB, MAGNA ROAD, CANFORD MAGNA near WIMBORNE BH21 3AE – MEETINGS START AT 7.30PM.
