I purchased my first Mercedes-Benz – a 1998 SLK 230 – about ten years ago from a friend who had owned it from new. I then got to wondering what exactly I had bought so I joined the Club shortly afterwards to find out! Anglia North became a separate Region about seven years ago and I was then appointed as one of two Regional Officers. In the years since our membership has grown and our programme of events has expanded steadily, as have our regular monthly Club nights. Anglia North is blessed with the North Norfolk coast, some wonderful countryside and historic buildings and these often serve as the backcloth for our events. Over the last ten years, this wonderful little car and I have bonded and the Club has introduced me to a completely new circle of friends; I suppose that’s what a good club is all about.
