Hi All,


Let me introduce myself, My name‘s Doug Warren and I’m married to Jackie and we live in Galleywood, Chelmsford. Now retired, having worked in the Police and Security Industry for many years, I now have time to relax and enjoy the things I love, which include Jaguar Cars!

Having owned my first Jaguar, an X-Type 2.5 AWD back in 2005, I then sold it in 2012/3 to purchase my next Jaguar, a Seafrost XK8 convertible on my birthday in January 2013. A couple of years ago, I also acquired a XJ8 in the same colour as my XK8 – my winter car!


I have recently taken on the responsibility of Regional Officer for the Essex region of the XKEC. For my sins, I have in the past been the Chairman and Editor of the Jaguar Enthusiasts’ Club Essex Thameside Region (ETR) for 9 years until 2019. I needed to hand the reigns over to others in that club to progress it. I now feel privileged to use my experience to progress the XKEC Essex Region further. While Chairman of the ETR I organised meetings, club shows, meals out, visits to places of interest, as well as organising three European Tours for the club. I am hoping I can do something similar with members from the XKEC Essex Region.


My next meeting with members will be a breakfast meeting to be held on Saturday 25th September 2021. Further breakfast meets will be arranged and advised in advance, along with other events. 

This is your club, so I would welcome your thoughts and any ideas of what you want from your region. If you are not already a member why not come along and sign up?


I look forward to meeting you on 25th September.


Doug Warren


Our First Essex Breakfast Meet - 28th August 2021

I wish to thank all members that attended our first “Breakfast Meet” at The Hare Public House, at Roxwell, Chelmsford on Saturday 28th August 2021. It was a great turnout and a chance for everyone to meet fellow members from the Essex area. In total 17 cars arrived and parked in the overfill car park and lined up against the barrier sleepers surrounding the car park. It was a great sight and attracted a lot of attention from other customers so much so, the pub’s Facebook page on the day included pictures of our cars in their car park.
