The Northern Ireland Branch of The Morris Minor Owners Club is one of the most active clubs in the province. Having been formed in 1980 and with over 100 members, the club has gone from strength to strength.
In the past, trips have been organised all over Ireland and the UK with a trip to Euro Disney in aid of Save the Children Fund in 1992. The Club was represented in The Lord Mayor’s Show in London a few years ago and organised a trip to Blenheim Palace to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Minor.
During the summer we organise regular one-day and weekend events. The Club has taken part in the AOVC Classic Show which was held in Ballymena Showgrounds where well in excess of 1,200 old vehicles of all makes and models were to be seen. We had a very successful day at the inaugural AOVC Classic Show, winning best stand with our interpretation of Snow White and the Seven Minors in 2009 and winning again in 2011. You can see photos from the day in our gallery.
Minoring in the 21st Century!
In 2006 the Club had a Teddy Bears Picnic Theme for the Club Stand at Kilbroney and won the Award for Best Club Stand at the Show. This year the club picked up an award for Best Club Stand at the AOVC Classic Show.
Over the years we have handed over in excess of £10,000 to local charities gathered from various club events.
2008, being the 60th Anniversary of the first Morris Minor, a trip was organised to the national rally in England, held on the 21st to 22nd of June at Stanford Hall. 33 members set out on a 400 mile round trip by bus to visit the event; another six members drove the trip in three Morris Minors to the event.
The Club Meets on the first Thursday of each month in Belfast Bowling Club, Deramore Park where there are various guest speakers, etc. In the summer months we normally go outdoors for a drive or an outing. As members of The Association of Old Vehicle Clubs, our main events and accompanying entry forms can be found on the events page. Other events can be viewed on the AOVC website.
