HMC meet on the first Tuesday of each month at various venues, come along to meet fellow club members for a chat and a beer! See the HMC calander for meeting locations…. calender link
HMC also take part in various other social events – karting at Herefordshire Raceway, Team Factory Visits, bowling and the infamous Xmas meal!
The highlight of the year is the awards presentation evening in February where we celebrate achievements of the previous year plus enjoy a pint and a dance!
ANNUAL DINNER & AWARDS PRESENTATION EVENING
SATURDAY 4TH FEBRUARY 2017
New venue – new format!
Trying to refresh the event from another angle, it has been decided to get the formality of Awards’ Presentation made first so then everyone can relax and enjoy the evening.
Arrival will be from 7.00pm – time to get in a drink or two before sitting down at 7.30pm prompt for the Awards Presentation to take place so please don’t be late and disrupt the announcements!
A 2-course Dinner will be served as soon as the Presentations are completed – which will be circa 8.30pm. As we appreciate some guests may think this is a little late but to be honest, quite often in the past the starter hasn’t been served much before 8pm as waiting for everyone to arrive and with ‘Grace’ etc, etc.
However, there will be “light nibbles” on the tables to enjoy during the Presentations and serve as a starter.
The final menu has yet to be finalised but it will be a hot meal still, being provided by Club Member, Brian Passey – “Occasions by Passey” – who is an outside caterer ….another box ticked!
Another new feature of this function is that following Dinner, the live band of “The Innocent” will perform two sets to entertain everyone through until late. They play a wide range of styles and genres of music – upbeat, folksey, irish feel and they are as confortable playing modern and rock, as 60’s and 70’s too.
However, for those who want to sit and have a chat and catch up, there is another area away from the main hall to do just that.
As usual, a charity Raffle will be held also, raising money for a worth cause, and this will be drawn during the evening.

We ask that the dress code is still “Lounge Suit and Party Dresses” (whichever suits you best!!), as this function is still a major event for HMC and we all want to have a great excuse to dress-up [please, no jeans or casual clothes].
For the 2017 function, reflecting on the venue/catering/etc, plus with a little subsidy by the Club, the cost per person is only £15.00 !!
Numbers will be limited however and tickets are available NOW from Jim Lewis, so if you would like to join us, please contact Jim on 07527 653675 to book.
Bit of a shake-up on previous events, but worth a try!
Depending on how this evening pans out, then a decision will be made moving forward for 2018, so your feedback would be appreciated – whether you attend or not, what’s your thoughts?????
