Our Section meetings have a change of venue. We’re no longer at The Farmers Arms near Parbold, which closed its doors on Boxing Day, but have relocated 4 miles away to Briars Hall on Briars Lane, Lathom near Ormskirk L40 5TH. Monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month as previously, 8pm start, so please come and join us, we welcome your support. For further information please contact Mike Hurst 01695 732492 (he doesn’t bite) or Derek Ashworth 07712 814005.

2017 and our section runs have started! … The Hangover Run! – Sunday 15th January
A new year. An unpromising dawn in South West Lancashire – grey, mild, drizzly – depressing! Not the sort of day you would choose to go for a solo ride – but a day out with mates, now that’s different! NACC riders were joined on the Hangover Run by two random motorcyclists, one car driver (a cyclemotorist feigning incapacity) and riders from the Lancashire Slow Riders. All rode from the Briars Hall Hotel in Lathom to the Barons Sports and Social Club in Burscough to the VMCC gathering there.
We had a wide range of Club machines – from Joe’s Trojan Buzzing Bee Special (which prompted the now-customary lengthy question and answer session from the VMCC members) through John and George’s autocycles (Francis Barnett and Excelsior), Mike H’s James light motorcycle, and Mike G’s Raleigh RM4. There was epicurean crusty hot pot courtesy of the VMCC at dinnertime, and a chinwag over coffee after the ride back at Lathom. An excellent day out with mates!
