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 publications@lsmoc.co.uk and we will arrange a Committee Member to meet you.

 

Don’t forget you can make other Mini friends by visiting our Facebook page.
