A brilliant day out for members on Sunday 9th July 2017 at the Kimbolton Classic Car Show & Country Fayre. Plenty to see inlcuding a few hundred cars of various shapes and sizes, lots of stalls, food and drink, music, things for the kids, even a civil war type re-enactment. Even had a Spitfire fly past.
On Saturday 24th June 2017 we held our clubs first ever Open Day & Charity Event at our club HQ in Northfleet, Kent. Twenty-five cars attended the event. The day gave members the opportunity to look around the office and its surroundings and to enjoy a great family day out meeting other members and their cars. More importantly the whole day helped raise charity money for the Darent Valley Cancer Fighting Fund in memory of our local South East Member Ivor Harrison who recently passed away from Cancer.
With food and drink laid on all day as well as club merchandise on show and a number of other craft stands selling items such as jewellery, handbags, scarves, framed prints etc there was lots to see and do.
Although money is still coming it appears we have raised somewhere around £1,800 for the charity so a big thank you to everyone who came along and supported this event and our recent on-line charity auction.
A special thanks goes out to all the companies who kindly donated some great prizes for the auction and to our Guest Speaker Peter Leake who gave a couple of superb presentations on the Jaguar Le Mans years. Thanks also to THE EAST KENT CHORUS QUARTET, a local group who sing in the Barbershop style who provided some very joyful afternoon entertainment.
