In early 1974, our first President (and first Life Member), Rev. Clem Minge, placed a notice in the local newspaper ‘The Advertiser’ for Mercedes-Benz drivers who may be interested in forming a Club. A meeting was scheduled for 2pm on Sunday 30th June 1974. Eleven vehicles turned up at that meeting – after a short discussion and upon a motion being put forward, it was resolved that a club be formed. At a second meeting on 15th July 1974 18 dedicated owners attended and the Club was born
In 2014, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Club.
