Hello everyone, welcome to our August newsletter.

I hope you have all been enjoying the rather warm weather we have had recently. The summer seems to be flying by.

Since our last newsletter the car season has continued over the last month with a full calendar of events and shows. We attended: The Hare car meet. The The Maldon Show with 36 members cars and 2 cars from Grange Jaguar, The Porsche Club annual BBQ, with close to 200 cars attending, The Orsett Car Show, The Battlesbridge car meet and the Brake Horse Power Show at the Chelmsford Race Course.

Over the coming month we will be attending The Cherry Tree Car Meet, RHS Hyde Hall Car Show, and our own August Drive-It-Day, starting at the Museum of Power, visiting the Stow Maries Great War Museum, followed by an optional meal at The Hurdlemakers Arms. I will email members with full timings and details closer to the event.

Your committee are looking at options for an European Tour in June 2020 and a UK long weekend in September 2020. We hope to be able to give members further details in the next month or so.

Let's hope the hot weather continues. Once again I look forward to seeing many of you at our next club night, which is on Tuesday 6th August.
