WELCOME             

                                                  

This year has turned out to be a time never witnessed before in the Club's historyThe cancellation of this year's rally has resulted in us having to dip into our reserves to keep the club running whilst we have no real income apart from membership fees. The overheads of the Club are not excessive and very small compared to a lot of other similar organisations. Once we have Covid under control and the vaccine sorted out across the country, then we can get our lives back to normal and we can meet again for club nights and at rallies as well as having our own crank up and club rally.

 

Subscriptions 2021. These are due on the 1st January 2021 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 £1.65 postage if you require a diary.  New members are always welcome and membership forms are available from Andrew Wild (Chairman) 0161 439 3946.

 

GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS require ALL MEETINGS to be CANCELLED DUE TO THE CORONA VIRUS. MEMBERS WILL BE NOTIFIED BY LETTER WHEM MEETINGS RESUME. If you need help please ring one of the club officers listed at the foot of this page.

 

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.
