Due to the fact that Northern Section members  are spread over several counties, a regular evening meeting is often difficult to coordinate and we tend instead to meet up at the monthly breakfast events which take place at the Corner House pub at Wrightington, near Standish, which also provides the additional interest of up to a hundred other classic and vintage cars. These informal meetings run from April through to October on the first Sunday of the month, starting at about 9.30 a.m. and going though until lunchtime and we look forward to seeing you there. We also are present at other events throughout the year.
