In 2009, the 50th anniversary of the Mini, a group of like minded individuals met up at

The day ELMOC was formed
Haddington Festival fun day that year to show off our cars, and over the course of that day we decided what a good idea it would be to have a local club. From there we have grown from a few friends to an organised club with members from all over Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our annual show is still with the Haddington Festival Fun day as we like to support the community that started us off.

Over the years we have attended car shows from Belgium to Ireland and participated in runs to places like Lake District, Helensburgh and Arbroath as well as attended events such as the International Mini meet as well as taken part in the Mini Clan annual Thistle Run to Anstruther, Girvan, Eyemouth and Fort William.

in 2016 we changed from being East Lothian Mini Owners Club to Edinburgh and Lothian’s Mini Owners Club as our membership grew to a much larger catchment than we expected. This growth has not changed the values of the club, just opens us up more to a greater sphere of members.
