"A  reminder that Summer Wine are playing the Castle Inn in Usk on Sat 8th September,the day of the Usk show.Should be a big crowd  and a good night"

Our sincere apologies to you all but Summer Wine have had to cancel Saturday night at the Castle Inn as Mike our guitar player and singer has been advised by his heart specialist to rest up completely until they get to the bottom of the recurrence of a heart problem which has surfaced again over the last 48 hours. Matt and Charlotte have been most understanding at the Castle Inn and we are appreciative of their concern and pass on their best wishes to Mike.

We hope to be back on the road as soon as possible and will keep you posted.
 

Many thanks 

Pete, Dave, Mike and Ray

 Stuart's August mutterings.

A large contingent of Taffmoggers attended the Thrill On The Hill at Prescott over the weekend of the 11th and 12th August. This year’s event celebrated 50 years of the Plus 8 with a car for every year on display with John Beskeen’s car representing 1969. The weather for the weekend could have been kinder but everyone seems to have enjoyed the weekend.

Jan has kindly sent me a report on the West Wales chapter’s trip Prescott: “Eight cars met for the run up to Abbot Salford for our overnight stop. We drove over the Rhigos, but by the time we got to Hirwaun we had lost a few cars. This was to be the norm for the rest of the weekend. Thankfully by the time we arrived at The Walwyn Arms, Much Marcle and met up with Keith and Brenda, most of the cars had found their way there, but some arrived an hour later.

After a lovely lunch we set off for the second part of the run, and again we lost cars. This time due to road works and diversions. Eventually we all arrived at the hotel and met up with the others who had been to the Morgan Factory for the day.

Sunday all fourteen cars set off for Prescott, and a good day was had by all. Mike and Phyllis went up the hill in their +8, and Des and Jackie in the three wheeler. They both also took part in the track parade.

We went our separate ways from Prescott, but six cars decided to drive back to the Honey Cafe. We all set off together, but arrived separately. The last car arriving an hour and a half later.

To summarise, a weekend filled with laughter, good friends and great driving.”

As part of the Morgan Motors Motor Company’s national campaign Newtown Motors held a breakfast event on the 18th August followed by a scenic run taking in the Wye valley. Six Morgans attended the event and further details and photo’s can be found on Newtown Motors’ Facebook page.

Paul and Lesley hosted breakfast on the late August Bank Holiday Sunday for Taffmoggers attending the Ponthir Music & Car Festival. Paul, assisted by Nigel, worked hard at the barbecue cooking copious quantities of sausage and bacon while Lesley kept us supplied with tea and coffee. Unfortunately only half of those who said that they would be there turned up. Hopefully by the time that you read this Paul will have polished off the leftovers! By early afternoon the rain had eased off a little and three Morgans set off for Ponthir. The organisers were grateful that we turned up because the poor weather meant that only a fraction of the cars that were expected actually turned up.

The Ty Risha and Usk Noggins were very well attended now that everyone seems to have had their holidays.

Kath let me know that “There was a 100% increase on last month’s attendance which had included new members Jeff and Cheryl O’Brien, just hope that we have not frightened them away as we did not see them this month.

The beginning of the evening saw us treated (!!!!!) to the over exposure of one of the group when a copy of the “Classic Car Weekly” was passed around.  Apart from 3 pictures of his car, also on view were his knobbly knees, but we survived the shock! Joking apart it was good to see one of our members receive recognition  for all his hard work. Well done John.”

 Jan reports that there was a good turnout at this months noggin at the Halfway despite some of the regulars being missing, due to the Windermere weekend. Des and Jackie were the only ones to turn up in a Morgan, but Mike and Phyllis turned up in his new purchase, a Jaguar E type.
