WELCOME

Meeting Announced            

                                                  

We are happy to announce we will be holding a Macclesfield Vintage Machinery Club meeting on Saturday 4th December at the DAVENPORT ARMS, 550 Chester Road, Woodford, Stockport. SK7 1PS (opposite Woodford Church) 10:30am until 3pm. This historic pub is known locally as the ‘Thief’s Neck’. 

 

This will be an entirely open-air meeting with space for a crank up. There will be a much more formal club meeting to transact business at 11am. Should the weather be unkind there is an open sided marque that we are able to use for the formal club meeting. This is just a chance for people to catch up.

 

There are hopeful signs that we will soon be returning to some kind of normal, which means that it might not be too long before we can meet regularly again as a club.

 

Please could you let me (Andrew Wild) know ASAP if you will be attending so I have an idea of numbers. By e-mail (anwild04(at)hotmail.com) or leave a message on our answer phone (0161 4393946)

 

We look forward to seeing everyone that can make it.

 

Subscriptions 2022. These are due on the 1st January 2022 for the  year. Please send £10 to the membership Secretary (57,Ullswater Road, Handforth, Wilmslow, Cheshire. SK9 3NG). A return envelope is needed with a stamp on it or £0.76 postage.  New members are always welcome and membership forms are available from Andrew Wild (Chairman) 0161 439 3946.

 

The club caters for people's interest in the heritage and restoration of old Internal Combustion Stationary Engines as used in Agriculture and Industry. We are a growing club with 70+ members and are always willing to accept more! We have members of all abilities from highly skilled engineers able to help and offer support, through to novices who perhaps have more enthusiasm than skill. All are fired by an interest in helping to preserve and display our engineering heritage.

The aims of the club are the preservation, presentation and use of bygone agricultural/industrial engines, implements, tools, vintage machinery and model engines. Although based primarily on the interest in Stationary Engines, the club also welcomes owners or enthusiasts of vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles and horticultural equipment.

Whether you have an engine or not, or you are simply looking for information, we would like to hear from you, all are welcome to join in 

We run and support events during the summer months for exhibiting engines and hold regular meetings through September to May in Macclesfield.

We often have a speaker or a film/slide show, sometimes a quiz and always a natter – it’s a friendly gathering, why not come along and join us for an evening and see for yourself!

Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 8pm as below at The Silk Trader Macclesfield SK11 7AD.
