Starting shortly after Easter Bridget and I will be touring the UK, delivering talks about our world travel adventure. Entitled ‘An Evening with Miss Bridget’ the talk lasts about two hours with a comfort break halfway through. The itinerary currently is as follows:

  • Abingdon           –     9th April
  • Loughborough    –    14th April
  • Bedford             –    16th April
  • Godstone          –    19th April
  • Norwich            –    20th April
  • Lincolnshire       –    22nd April
  • Yorkshire           –    24th April
  • West Auckland    –   28th April
  • Scottish Borders  –   30th April
  • Caledonian        –     9th May
  • North West        –    11th May
  • Bromsgrove        –    12th May
  • Abingdon           –     14th May

There may be additional venues added before the start and updates will be displayed here. The tour is being promoted by the MGCC, but is open to anyone wishing to attend. E-mail for further details.

Preparing Bridget for the tour is now a priority. She needs a new windscreen, the twin SU’s need rebuilding, replacement mirrors and window winders are required and the interior needs renovating. I have a replacement windscreen glass, kindly donated by Mike Authers of Abingdon. Mike restores and sells MG Midgets for a living, and has for the past twenty years.

It’s amazing how one can pass hours of fun on a Sunday afternoon dismantling and rebuilding SU carburettors, dismantling and rebuilding, and dismantling and rebuilding. Then you discover the reason it isn’t right is that the supplier has given you two different length jets and not a matched pair. Don’t you just love ‘em!
