What is the purpose of the Club?



The Club was formed in the late 1979 by a handful of enthusiasts with these intentions:


a.       To provide a friendly basis for Morris Minor owners to meet and enjoy the company and experience of other


Morris Minor owners.


b.       To keep as many Morris Minors as possible in running condition and in use by fostering mutual assistance


Between members and by seeking sources of spares – both new and second hand.



What does the Club offer its members?


The following are the practical outcome of the founders’ initial intentions.


1. Monthly Meetings:        These are held on the third Tuesday of every month at the Fox and Hounds, Winchester,


 Road, Fairoak, Eastleigh, Southampton, SO50 7HB, starting at 8 p.m. and consist of film


 shows, skittle evenings, Minor maintenance tips, talks, slide shows and general socializing


 with other Minor owners.


2. Monthly Magazine:        This is distributed on Club night. If you are unable to attend, your copy will be posted to


you. The magazine keeps you informed of all Club activities, events, reports, Minors in


the news and cars or spares for sale or wanted.


3. Events:                              The majority of outside events take place during the summer when the Club organizes


rallies, barbecues, treasure hunts and other weekend get togethers. These are great fun


and often include meetings with other Morris Minor clubs from neighboring counties.


4. Technical Advice:           Always available from other members who, while not promising to know all the answers


will always try to help.


5. Club Tool Hire:                This service offers you engine hoist, valve lifter, rear hub box spanner, car roller, etc., all


cheaper than commercial tool hire rates.


6. Car Valuation:                 The committee has valuation forms and will value your car for insurance or selling


purposes. A fee is charged for non-members and reimbursement of any petrol costs to the


committee member would be appreciated.
