It’s our 1st MG Awareness Event in the UK and also our 1st VW bus in the UK, too !!!!
It’s a double celebration I hope, though lots to do yet. Masses still to get organised and completed (as of noon Friday) before attending the VW event, Grill-n-Chill, at The Hop Farm in Kent all day Saturday 22nd September.
All morning of Friday 21 Sept: EVENT ANNOUNCEMENTS
FACEBOOK POST to the VW community at Grill-n-Chill 2012‘s Event Page: ….
My VW bus, The YesWeCan CamperVan can’t make Grill-n-Chill because after us driving 8,000 miles across USA earlier this year, he is resting at Wolfsburg West in SoCal, USA. However if all goes to plan, I’ll be with you tomorrow in a new addition to VW4Causes, the 15 window green bus you see below – no name yet! Please find us and enter the “NAME THE BUS” competition and other interactive events. Also your kids can have fun ”Doodling on the Bus for kids with MG” … (see more info on our driving for a cause at http://vw4causes.org and please sign up to our FB pages and twitter accounts – THANK YOU)

Calling all southerners (i.e. those in S.E. England ) ….. anyone want to meet me and my “MG Awareness” exhibit at The Hop Farm in Kent tomorrow? There’s a wonderful event called ‘Grill-n-Chill’ going on all day with hundreds of classic VWs to see. If all goes well with me collecting my classic VW bus from Bedford late today and my drive on the LH side of the road (help!) I’ll be there bright and early showcasing posters about MG with the photos you have sent me of your loved ones. If you can come, call me to find out where I’m parked. If you can’t, a friendly text tomorrow will keep up my spirits. So far it’ll just be me, but I’m hoping to see one or two of you on the day
