Events & Socials
Why not tag along and find some likeminded people? We attend events from all over the mini scene.
We know as a newbie that attending your first few Club Socials can be a little daunting.
Our advice would be to make sure you introduce yourself to our friendly Committee and Club Members! A Mini magazine or Mini T-Shirt is one way of being spotted at one of our Socials or of course turn up in your Mini! If you would like to attend one of our Socials and don’t want to go alone then please email email@example.com and we will arrange a Committee Member to meet you.
Don’t forget you can make other Mini friends by visiting our Facebook page.

Diamond Riding Centre - 26th September
The Diamond Centre for Disabled Riders is a registered charity, which provides facilities to benefit disabled children and adults by having regular contact with horses. Licenced by the London Borough of Sutton licence number 19/00102 – five star rating.
The Diamond Centre is a unique establishment for riding for the disabled and is known and respected world-wide. We are the only Centre of its kind in the London Region specialising in all fields of riding for the disabled including; dressage, carriage driving, vaulting and hippotherapy. Our riders are aged between 4 and 65 years old and each week, with the assistance of our instructors and helpers, they can enjoy the experience of riding, driving or vaulting. An experience which gives them the chance to be independent, a sense of achievement – and puts smiles on their faces!
It costs more than £300,000 each year just to run the Centre – and this doesn’t include the additional costs which occur such as replacing equipment, fences, horses and ensuring our buildings remain in good condition. We receive no financial support from the government or local authority and we rely solely on fees, donations, bequests and fundraising events in order to survive.
The Diamond Centre is one of LSMOC's charities, supported by the London To Brighton Mini Run, Each year we are invited to display our cars and see where our money goes
