------------- ATTENTION PLEASE -------------- 

The Northern Section Committee apologise for the mix up at Rixton yesterday (8th Jan) due to an admin error with the hall. 

PLEASE NOTE that we will not be there for FEBRUARY or MARCH due to the hall being let out to other groups but we will return for NOV and DEC. 

We have now managed to secure our other venue at KNOWLE GREEN for FEBRUARY and MARCH and will remain there till our AGM in October. 

We apologise again for any inconvenience. 

Lynn 
Northern Secretary.



Welcome to the BMW Club Northern Section
 
  

   Formed in 1962, we are the largest of 15 regional sections of The BMW Club of the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. One of the most important objectives of the section, and the club as a whole, is to 'foster friendship through the ownership of BMW motorcycles'. With this in mind, members organise many events, both at weekends and midweek, giving each member the chance to participate and become involved in the section.

   The area covered by the Northern section is bounded by the counties of Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cheshire, the Isle of Man and includes parts of North Wales, North Staffordshire and North West Derbyshire. Covering such a large area, having just one regular meeting place is impractical. Accordingly, there are two main venues (Knowle Green and Rixton, depending on the time of year) and two midweek locations where our members, old and new, are able to meet up and discuss all things BMW (but not exclusively!), often with refreshments available. The panel on the right shows where and when each meeting is held, and directions  to the venues are given via the link on the left.

   In addition to our regular meetings, we organise a wide range of activities open to all the membership of the section, and members of the club as a whole. These include a winter rally in North Wales, several camping and hotel weekends, and both weekend and midweek runs. Something for everyone, we hope. The 'Diary of Events' has all the details and our activities can also be viewed on the 'Reports' page (click on the appropriate link on the left).

   Our committee members are listed in the panel on the right. For general enquiries your first contact should be our secretary. Other enquiries of a more specific nature should be directed to the appropriate section officer. For club members new to the section, we have a liaison officer who may be contacted for a friendly chat, either in person at the main venue (Knowle Green or Rixton, depending on time of year) or via the contact details on the 'Section Committee' link on the left.

   For anyone wishing to join the BMW Club, and the Northern Section, full details are available by clicking on the 'Join the Club' link, above.
