Those of you who were members of the club in the early/mid noughties may recall my beige Mk II Escort estate in which I attended a number of National Days and monthly meets at the Brache, Luton. I also used to enter in in auto tests. It had the nickname of the Batford Escort as it was parked outside my late mother’s flat there for many years. Sadly because of ongoing health problems I have decided that restoring the bodywork and converting to an automatic is too much for me. So regrettably after nearly thirty years in the family. Please e-mail me if you are interested. Thank you…

I wonder if you could help me. I have tried the contact us link on this site but have not had a response. I have a Lotus/Caterham 7, the gear lever linkage has broken due to the failure of a plastic ball in in the mechanism, I have been told the linkage is non standard and it is from an Escort Sport. Do yo know where I could get a replacement part or do you have any other solution. I have some photos of the broken part and linkage which I could send if it helps.

I do agree with you, Mark, but as you will have seen by the latest mag, if members don't send articles to Stuart then he has nothing to work on, consequently, no mag!
Surely, an article about a show, work done over the winter, a new aquisition or a new member telling us about his conversion to Escorts is not too hard. I'd never written an article until I joined this club, now I seem to be constantly in it. From my point of view it would be good to hear about other members and what they get up to with their cars. The mag is always proofed so members don't need to worry if they've never written before.
I've already written an article about my first show of the year! Of course, the other point is if neither Geoff nor Stuart are told about new shows how can we expect members to attend, as a club. It would be nice to visit other shows further afield.

With the club scene changing over the years and with internet clubs popping up for free at a fast rate we need to keep us members in the loop of whats going on in the club. Two things that Peter and Geradine championed was our National Day at Stanford Hall and the club magazine. The magazine was the life blood of the club keeping us all together.

After 25 years as a member of the SEOC I am starting to ask myself what value I am getting for my membership fee. I know producing the magazine is hard work and is tough going. Both myself and Peter had a go at keeping it ticking along. I will renew my membership purely for the love of this club, but £20 for a membership card and not a lot else is going to start putting people off joining or renewing at some stage.
