The next meeting of Longmynd Vintage Vehicle Club will be held at the Inn on the Green, Wentnor on Wednesday 12th March starting at 8.00 p.m..  Guests are welcome to attend at a cost of £2.00.
Local TV personality and drummer from the Wonderstuff Fuzz Townshend is coming to talk about making ‘Car SOS’, the first series showing last year and can tell us about the realities of restoring cars of various ages.  He is also going to talk about his new Classic Friendly franchise and it promises to be a good evening.  Fuzz also has regular features in Practical Classics magazine.

Club Chairman Karen Bavastock said “We are really pleased to welcome Fuzz to our club and I look forward to hearing about the trials and challenges in making the popular TV series Car SOS as well as hearing about some of Fuzz’s other ventures.”  She added “I was entertained by Fuzz’s classic car restoration show after helping to restore a 1966 Volvo Amazon myself and try to source parts, etc and it bought back the trials and challenges we faced –  but Fuzz has done this lots of times so I am really looking forward to hearing the stories of the making of the programme and was really pleased when Fuzz agreed to attend.  Please come along and support your local club”.

_MG_4310The Longmynd Vintage Vehicle Club was formed in 2009 at an initial meeting held at the Inn on the Green, Wentnor by a group of individuals interested in vintage vehicles of any description.  The club is open to anyone who wants to join, members do not have to own a vintage vehicle, just have an interest in vehicles of any description.  We meet monthly on the second Wednesday of each month and have many events to interest members from DVD’s to vintage vehicle runs, social events, trips and guest speakers.  Come along and support a local club.  New members are always welcome, as are guests also.

Membership is £15 for the year.  Guests are always welcome at events and we ask for a £2.00 donation to the club for attending any event.
