North Thames



Andrew Fearon

In Summer 1995, the 1st Regional meeting of the UK MX-5 Owners Club was held in the North Thames Region. Initially thirteen Regional Areas were set up to allow the start of local meetings being held across the UK. At this stage there were 298 members of the club with the most popular colours being classic red (135), British Racing Green (41), Sunburst Yellow (26). North Thames Regional meetings are held on the last Wednesday of the month (except December) at “The Eagle” public house, Kelvedon Hatch, from 18:30pm. One possible route is – From Junction 28 of the M25 follow the A1028 to Brentwood then turn left onto the A128 which will take you into Kelvedon Hatch. Drive through the village and the pub is set back on the Left hand side as you leave the village. (The pub is on the opposite side of the road to the police station, and a large water tower set back from the road.) Just a note for those of you that are following the directions above – Be Careful! It is easy to overshoot the pub car park!
