Thanks to RR Parts Ltd, we are having a FREE play day at Mannington on the 12th February!
Some exciting news is that RR Parts are providing a selection of raffle prizes including a Bearmach service kit, Bearmach wrap-around diff guard, and a T-Max hi-lift jack. We are also putting some club merchandise into the raffle so you could win some lovely ShireLRC gear, or if you’re unlucky you might win a club keyring!
The T-Max hi-lift jack will go to one randomly selected member on the day – you’ve just got to be there and signed in to be in with a chance!
We can also confirm there will be a burger van on-site for food and drinks.
Proceeds from the raffle will go to the Hampshire & Isle Of Wight Air Ambulance.
If you are not already a member, you can join up online right here, right now or you can join up on the day for £15.

A huge thanks to all who turned out for our end of year “Cold turkey” play day at Mannington. We had a great turnout, and a grand time was had by almost everyone – we’re not sure if the guys stuck in the ice-cold pond were having fun or not, but it looks like they were providing entertainment for those stood on dry land!
Here’s just a couple of the many photos from the day which are already up on our Facebook group:
So with 2017 just a few days away, here’s a couple of dates for your shiny new calendar:
The January Club Social is Thursday 5th January.
The next event is a green lane day on 22nd January – please get in touch with Dan Thain either via our Facebook group or the contact form to book a place.
Its almost Christmas and that means lots of fun, beer, crazy last minute shopping, and rushing around to see family. If you fancy a bit of a break and some time away from the Christmas craziness, come along to our Mannington Playday and enjoy a few hours of off road fun!
It’s that time of year, and our membership secretary is incredibly busy (some lame excuse about rennovating a house) so if you are waiting for a membership application or renewal to be processed please be patient – it WILL get done!
If you’re planning on attending our post-Christmas play-day and your membership card has expired or you haven’t had one yet, please just contact us ASAP and we can make sure your name is on our list.
We’re club of the month in the January 2017 issue of LRM Magazine, here’s a sneak peek:

We will be having a club stand at October’s Newbury 4×4 and Vintage Spares Day.
