DUE TO THE INTERNATIONAL CORONAVIRUS (COVID 19) SITUATION ALL CLUB NIGHTS AND CLUB ACTIVITIES HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UNTIL LOCKDOWN RULES ARE RELAXED.
WE ARE RUNNING MONTHLY CLUB MEETINGS VIA ZOOM CONFERENCE ON THE FIRST MONDAY ON EACH MONTH STARTING AT 7PM AND ARE HOPING TO RESUME MEETINGS AT HAMWORTHY SPORTS CLUB FROM JULY.

PLEASE CHECK THIS WEBSITE REGULARLY FOR UPDATES.
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.
The cars owned by our members range from a J2 up to an SV supercar 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.
In August each year, we hold a charity fund-raising event, a Garden Party and Picnic at Athelhampton House near Dorchester. All MGs are welcome to park on the lawns of this Grade One listed Tudor manor house. Proceeds from the day go to our chosen local charities: Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and Macmillan Caring Locally. From time to time we also make extra donations to other worthy causes.
When able, we meet from 7.30pm on the first Monday of each month, including Bank Holidays, at The Hamworthy Sports Club, Magna Road, Canford Magna near Wimborne BH21 3AE, in the small function room.
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.
In 2019 the club marked its 35th anniversary with a celebration dinner on Saturday 12 October at the Thistle Hotel on Poole Quay.
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.
