Colin Wright RIP

From Robert Newlove:

I have been advised that Colin Wright has passed away in The Cottingham Nursing home aged 84. I’m afraid that only our older members will know him, he was a past club  magazine editor and a member of the famous  “Green Men” marshalling team, together with Les Coulson and  Bob Simpson, sadly no longer with us. This leaves Graham Hudson as the only remaining Green Man, although Mike Kitchen is still under apprenticeship.

I will advise funeral arrangements when I get them


February 2022 newsletter

Robert and John have put a short newsletter together which will be on the NHMC web-site and going out in hard copy to those who have requested magazines by post in the next week.

Gavin Heseltine, among the many other roles he did for NHMC, was our Magazine Editor – we desperately need a Magazine Editor – if you have an interest in desktop publishing and fancy helping out, please contact Robert Newlove 

Fergie Fawsitt re-opening?

From Dennis Robinson:

We have heard that the Fergie might be opening again mid-March.

Before I go and start any negotiations on making any arrangements for either NHMC or BDMC to resume meetings there on our regular Thursday night slot, can NHMC members give me an indication as to whether they would again resume the noggin and natter night if the Fergie opens again.

The Bay Horse have been very hospitable but parking is dire and it is not central to our membership.

Replies to Dennis Robinson, please.

Tyres for sale (in memory of Gavin Heseltine)

From Paul (Fred) Pattison:

I have not been a member of NHMC for some years having moved away from the area.

I am aware of the sad passing of Gavin Heseltine, I knew him through my eldest brother from his time in Young Farmers through to joining NHMC.

I have four forest tyres left over from my Mk 1 Cortina – if someone in the club would purchase them I will give the money to the British Heart Foundation in Gavin’s memory.

They are two Dunlop SP sport 165/80 r13 unused and two 165/13sportway with minimal use.

Maurice Colley RIP – Funeral Arrangements

From Robert Newlove:

I have been asked to send out the funeral arrangements for Maurice.

Funeral arrangements are as follows:

Thursday 26th August at 1.30pm Chanterlands Crematorium in the large chapel.

There will not be a wake afterwards due to Valerie recovering from a major operation and currently undergoing chemotherapy. She has been advised not to mix closely with people due of course to Covid.
