Keeping up with the Morgans

By Colin Thornton (Chairman)

August 2021

So the sun shone(mostly) and a good time was had by all. I think that is a fair summary of Mogfest, an event masterminded by Frank Whitefoot and superbly supported by members. A big thank you to all of those who helped with the planning and on the day, we had lots of positive comments and there was a palpable sense of relief that we were at last able to meet up again in person. The Club’s 70th anniversary drive in movie on the following day was also well attended and I saw (and heard) a few members joining in as Queen sang the title song from the film “Bohemian Rhapsody”. An MSCC choir perhaps? We also celebrated the Club’s anniversary by drawing the first 35 membership numbers at random who will each receive a year’s subscription free of charge with another 35 being drawn at the end of December. A list of winners can be found on page 6.

I make no apology for finishing this column on a more sombre and serious note. As I write we are experiencing something of a heatwave and I am certain this has encouraged many of you to get the Morgan out and go for a drive or even a short break. The feeling you get as you drive along with a breeze cooling things down hides the powerful effect the sun is having on any areas of the skin that are exposed. Skin cancer is on the increase and is the most common form of cancer in the UK. Always use factor 50 suncream anything else is likely to give insufficient protection and look out for any changes to your skin, not just moles but any red patches that might have appeared and won’t go away. Why am I telling you this? Because I have personal experience and the dermatologist scared the life out of me when explaining how easy it can be to miss the first signs of change. If you want to read more the NHS website(and others) explains what to look for. Luckily my problem was solved by the application of a cream but only because it was small and detected early. We love our cars and the sense of freedom they bring but we all need to take care. 

tay Safe.
