Regional Officer: John Balkwill
Areas covered: Cornwall, Devon and Somerset.
My name is John Balkwill, appointed XKEC Regional Officer for the South West.
Since first owning my XK8 in 2009, I've become quite passionate about these beautiful cars, so I am always ready to talk about them and offer car related advice to members new and old.
After spending most of my life as a navigating officer in the merchant navy, I am now retired and enjoying my new voluntary role as an observer for the IAM, The Institute of Advanced Motorists.
At present, the monthly meets for the SW region are at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton, Somerset BA22 8HT and all are welcome to enjoy a social breakfast at 10:00 on the 4th Saturday of each month.
For members closer to the end of the Country in Cornwall and Devon we hold a breakfast meet at 10am every 3rd Saturday of every 2nd month at The Arundell Arms, Lifton, Devon PL16 0AA (see further details below.).
In addition, I also planned a "Poldark" Tour around Cornwall in September 2016.

South West Breakfast meet takes place every fourth Saturday of each month at 10am at:
