We're very excited to announce we now have confirmation of a club stand at the 2020 Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show at the NEC in March!
Our stand will be in Hall 5 in our favoured location against the wall, with our friends from the Boston Classic Car Club beside us once again.
The team is already working on some exciting ideas for the stand and we will soon begin the search for great classics to be displayed.
In the meantime, here is the floorplan (our stand is bottom left in Hall 5).

A fabulous free-to-take-part mix of scenic coastal driving and heavy engineering as the group heads to mid Wales - 22 & Sun 23rd of August 2020.
Base camp and start of the drive will be Brynowen holiday park near Aberystwyth. From here we take the scenic coastal route on the A465 to the Internal Fire museum of power, just outside of Cardigan at Tany Y Groes , featuring huge diesel and steam engines from the industrial and maritime past.
From the museum we will head inland passing through remote villages and towns such as Newcastle Emlyn as we meander north back towards our second stop of the day at Rheidol hydro electric power station, set in stunning scenery the group will be allowed to park up and explore the reservoir and dam itself before going inside on a pre arranged tour of the inner workings of the power station including the huge water turbines, hot and cold refreshments are available at the visitor centre.
Sunday's part 2 will involve a gentle 7 mile drive to the Vale of Rheidol steam railway, a fantastic 12 mile narrow gauge railway winding it's way up and around impressive terrain before arriving at Devils Bridge Waterfalls, for those that don't wish to use the steam railway an alternative driving route will be provided and you can meet the train and those riding it at Devils Bridge for some excellent photo opportunities.

Group members Graham Adams and Sue Clamp invite everyone to join them on 27 June 2020 for the Staffordshire Oatcake Tour - a driving tour centred in the Peak District that they have planned and designed specially for the group.
Day 1 on Saturday, the convoy will leave base camp www.haleshallcaravanandcampingpark.com based in Cheadle and head north onto the moorlands with a first coffee stop in Flash, the highest village in England.
From Flash we head across country to the town of Buxton before heading towards Macclesfield on the Cat & Fiddle Road. Lunch stop will be at the newly refurbished Cat & Fiddle Inn, recently reopened with it's own whiskey distillery, suitably fed and watered the tour will continue back towards the campsite stopping off at Oakamoor to give our cars a blast up the Speed Hill climb course located there.
Day 2 - Sunday's tour takes a gentle turn south to the National Memorial Arboretum with time to explore this thought provoking place. From here on to the National Brewery Museum in Burton on Trent. This organised visit will allow us to park in the museum's inner courtyard, sample the brews on offer, enjoy lunch and check out their collection of vintage brewery vans and their beautiful Shire horses and carriages, finally returning to base camp around 4pm.

For those who prefer not to camp there is a B&B less than 1/2 mile from the site, meaning a stagger back to bed after an evening socialising with the rest of the group is possible.
