Welcome to the Gloucestershire Noggin

We are a friendly small band of enthusiastic Scimitar owners who meet on a monthly basis for a drink, food and discussion about all things Reliant Scimitar (plus many other conversations).

We normally meet on the 1st Thursday of each month at approximately 7 pm (1900) and our usual meeting place is the The White Hart, Broadoak, Newnham, GL14 1JB (on the A48 between Gloucester and Chepstow). However, on occasion, we hold meetings at another venue to share the travelling distance across the county.

The Noggin Members have a range of Scimitars including GT Coupe (SE4), SE5a, SE6b, GTC and Sabre mk2 (please see the photos and details below).

We would welcome new attendees so if you are a Scimitar owner and/or new member and live in the area please do make contact or join us at one of our meetings – you will be most welcome.
