*Reminder - Club Night meal is now $35pp.

Meeting with the RIchmond Club to discuss dinner menu and variety it was explained that costs of food and staffing have been rising quickly, and that $35 is now the 'minimum base price' - the price Richmond Club affiliated groups/sports pay when they have a group meal.

Our menu this week:

Prime Beef Sirloin on potato rosti with red wine jus OR Fish - Herb Salmon with potato gratin, lemon & dill cream, basil oil. Both with a green salad. Equal number of plates of each so you may not always get your first choice.

Lemon Tart with whipped cream for dessert.

Included in our meal cost is a spacious and welcoming venue with a quality sound system, image projection, great staff and a bar.  

The committee will continue to monitor the meals and welcomes comments.

Notes: 

The Club Night meal is now $35pp.

Meeting with the RIchmond Club to discuss recent dinner concerns it was explained that costs of food and staffing have been rising quickly, and that the $35 is the 'minimum base price' - the price Richmond Club affiliated groups/sports pay when they have a group meal. Dessert is included.  This price assures quality and variety.  

Included in our meal cost is a spacious and welcoming venue with a quality sound system, image projection, great staff and a bar.  

Pleasingly our relationship with the Richmond Club is a very positive one and discussions have been friendly and open which is not something that can always be assumed.

The committee will continue to monitor the meals and welcomes any comments.  We look forward to seeing you at our next Club Night - see below.

Welcome!

The MG Car Club Canterbury Centre has its roots in the original 'MG Car Club of New Zealand', formed in 1952 when many of the country's motorsport enthusiasts drove our favourite marque in the shape of TCs, TAs, Ps and Js.

From those early beginnings the NZ Club has devolved into four major Centres, two in the North Island and two in the South.  Each of these Centres is autonomous, organising competitive and social events for members within its regions. Like the 'Crusaders' our region includes Nelson, Marlborough and the West Coast as well as Canterbury. There are also a range of inter-Centre and national activities you are able to enjoy.  And of course, if you are visiting another region you will be most welcome to participate in any of their events, competitive or social.

Like most MG Clubs around the world we are affiliated to the MGCC UK ensuring access to badging, logos and so on.  We also maintain regular contact with a number of Centres in NZ, Australia, the US and the UK to help ensure we offer the best possible benefits and MG enjoyment for all of our members.​

For more detail of what we do, please visit the 'About Us' section.
