    • Hello Col,
      Thanks for your enquiry, and congratulations on your recent purchase!…. There’s some detail on joining on the membership page https://glossop4x4group.co.uk/membership/ , However, you’ll also notice we have pub meets on the third Monday of each month at the Grey Mare pub. You’ve just missed the one we had last night, but no fear, we also have a committee meet on the fourth Monday of the month at the same venue. Its called a committee meet as its the time for any official things to get sorted, but all members are welcome. So please feel free to pop along on Monday 23rd feb, Grey Mare Pub Charlesworth, near Glossop, from 8pm onwards, or indeed any of the pub meets to introduce yourself. Pat looks after the membership side of things, but anyone in the club is more than happy to chat to potential new members… We’ve had a couple new members join recently, so please don’t feel like you’ll be the odd one out!…There’s a good mix of people, some new to 4×4, through to others who’ve been around the block a few times!
      There’s lots of photos in the archive on here, so please have a look…We’ve only just changed the club website recently, and I’m still working on adding more content, which I hope to get on here soon.
      Look forward to meeting you.
      cheers,
      Joe (web & facebook admin)

  1. Just browsing the net, thought I’d look at the site and saw the LJ. Is it still in the club/on the road. I’ve got two myself but they’re in bits at the moment.

  2. Hi Dave, I’m not sure if the LJ is around anymore, but we’ve got a few members who like the Suzuki motors. We’re not an exclusively Land Rover based club, so we normally see a good mix of different 4x4s at meets and events. cheers, Joe (web/facebook admin)

  3. Thanks for a fun circuit in the RR V8 at the Hayfield show.
    Are there any sites in particular that specialises in selling off roaders that you can recommend, or is it best to hit the autotrader and add the extra bits myself?

    Cheers

  4. Hello, I’d like some information in joining. I’m new to green laning and it would be a first for me. I’ve just bought a Suzuki SJ. Do you do many meets through the winter? Thanks Laura.

    • Hello Laura, My apologies for missing your posting!.. We have many events throughout the year, though due to suitability of ground and weather we have more happening during the spring – summer months.
      Please do check out our events page for up to date listings. We also have monthly pub meets each third Monday of the month, and committee/pub meets on fourth Monday of the month. These happen at The George & Dragon, Charlesworth from approx. 8pm onwards.
      Hope to see you soon, and once again, my apologies for the slow reply.
      cheers, Joe (Web officer)

    • Hi Laura

      Ive just seen your request on the 4 x 4 glossop website.
      Ive been greenlaning motorbikes for ten years but recently sold up and bought a jimney.
      Im not particularly mechanically minded but would like to meet like wise girls interested in off roading. I just bought a suzuki jeep.
      What do you suggest? Im in Chesterfield Derbyshire but Glossop isnt a million miles away.

      Cheers

      • Hello Suzie,
        We have several female members in our group. Not all of us are mechanically minded (including some of the chaps), though part of being in the group is that we can call on the help of others.

    • Hello Steven,
      Thanks for your message. My apologies for the slow reply. Your messageboard message directly to the site was somehow lost until now…
      Yes, is it a silver one? I do recall the vehicle being owned by a member. I don’t recall it was ever used at club off road events, though was mainly used as a daily driver on tarmac and getting to and from events.
      Please do check out our other pages, and perhaps you’d like to join the club and have the car back in familiar surroundings again?
      best regards,
      Joe (web officer)

  5. Good morning,
    I found your web site and e-mail via Google and I’m writing for some advice.
    I have a much loved ’98 Jeep Cherokee XJ (Left Hand drive), based in the UK.
    Up until a couple of years ago this was my main vehicle, but when I replaced it I couldn’t bear to part ex or sell it as I felt it would go to a breaker yard.
    Therefore, it’s been in storage, undercover, in a large garage.
    Within the next 6 months I will be losing my storage so Im looking at options to sell the vehicle to someone who will love it just as I did.
    This is not a financial decision, I would rather give my XJ away to someone who will love it rather than a scrapper.
    Do you know of anyone or any organisations who would love a much loved limited XJ?
    Best wishes and Merry Christmas,
    Emma

    • Hello Emma,
      Apologies for my slow reply.
      I’m happy to pass on your request to our club facebook page, though I do need email contact information so we can help. This message board sadly does not show your email address.
      Alternatively, please do email directly Pat, our membership secretary, on the membership page, so we can forward this on to our club membership as a whole.
      Happy to help as best we can.
      best regards, Joe (web officer)
