The West Midlands Group

The West Midlands Group is now meeting at the Royal Oak, 70 Compton Road, Wolverhampton, WV3 9PH. Compton Road is one of the major roads out of Wolverhampton , going west.

The Royal Oak is a very motorcycle-friendly pub – there’s even some Sunbeam pictures on the walls - and on the 24th June they are hosting a Motorcycle Day. The beer is very good and the staff were very keen to have us there when we met at the Sunbeam Ale re-launch event at the brewery.

We meet on the third Thursday of alternate months. The meeting is very informal, and you can arrive any time between 7p.m and 9p.m. Everyone within reach of Wolverhampton, and beyond, is very welcome.

Peter Yates is the Corordinator for the group and can be contacted on
