The last month has been very busy for the Club with members attending Datchet Village Fair, see Ian Thompson’s write up further on in the magazine, Autoshow and Chiltern Open Air Museum.
The Autoshow was the first time the Club’s new gazebo was used, and provided much needed shade on what was a very hot day. The new layout devised by Ian Tippins was very successful and as you can see from the front cover, won us Best Club Stand Trophy.
I would like to thank all the committee and club members who helped lay out our stand on the Saturday morning and who helped dismantle it on the Sunday afternoon and everyone else who helped make the day so successful.
This year’s Club BBQ , which was held at a new location at Audley Dene Retirement Village, was one of the best we have had. The food was exceptional and the staff made us so welcome. The feedback that Denise and I have had from the members who attended was the Wow factor of the location, with its stunning patio, gardens and lake and the quality of the food and friendliness of the staff. Nothing was too much trouble.
Congratulations to our club member Nic Moore who organises the very successful Hanworth Classic Car Show for raising £17,202 for Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice.
Denise, Rob, Mary and I made a visit to Norman Grundon’s home to finalise the details with Paula, his PA, for our 55th Anniversary Celebrations. Hopefully this good weather will continue through till August.
A couple of members have asked if anyone knows of a mobile Auto Electrician who can deal with classic vehicles. If anyone knows any details could they contact me so I can pass on their details.
