East Midlands Group



For South Lincolnshire, The Wash, Peterborough and Huntingdon - even as far as Norwich and Bury St Edmonds for a couple of members !


The Postcodes covered are: LE, PE, LN, CB, NR and IP


We do not have a normal regular meeting place as we cover such a wide geographic area. During the main events season we aim to tell each other about our local shows, spread the word and meet at events. We have tried to organise a start or end of season lunch meet, but to date the weather has been against us – we continue to try !


If you live within or even close to this Region please contact:

Conan Lewis on 01778 590027 east-midlands-group@standardmotorclub.org.uk or

Pete Foster on 01406 363679 vanguardspares@standardmotorclub.org.uk


2010 Events


For all events I have included the website address so you can find out more about the

nature of the event and make your own entry arrangements.

Please let me know by phone or email if you plan to go to any so that if we have quite a

number I can arrange with the organisers for us to have our own space together. I will not

be at all the events, but I will coordinate group parking if possible.

Prioritised Events are shown in red – please try to come to these

If I have missed one of your local events please let me know and I will add it to the list.

Sunday 28th AGM at Solihull

Anyone wishing to join the East Anglian's may join me along the route or come along for

meet other members and have your say at the AGM.

Show is on the Sunday on the Meadows in the centre of this picturesque and

historic town.
