The annual club Registration / Vehicle Inspection Day will be held on Sunday, 25th June, at the Stanley Bridge Hotel at Verdun for lunch from 1100 hrs .

Partners are encouraged to attend.

See attached menu.

Due to the changes to the Historic Vehicle Code of Practice, stat-decs and vehicle inspections are no longer required. However registration papers will still need to be sighted and log books updated.

As this is a club run, it is preferred if members present with their historic vehicles. The new owner is keen for a photo shoot!

See you all there.
