Essex Thameside News, September 2019

Chairman's Message and list of future events.

For the full newsletter, please go to

Hello Essex Thameside Members, welcome to our September newsletter.

Our full summer calendar of shows and events continued over the last month.

We attended the RHS Hyde Hall Car Show, with 22 cars. The weather was ideal apart from one short downpour; in any case it soon dried out. The number of cars in the show increases each year and the gardens are more amazing each year. This show is certainly a firm favourite with our club.

We attended The Isle of Wight Car Show, staying at the weekend on The Island at Warners Norton Grange.

We had our three-part day outing, starting at The Museum of Power, followed by a visit to Stow Maries Great War museum, and finally a splendid meal at the Hurdlemakers Arms. I was pleased to see we had 25 cars attend our day. You will be able to read about this in next month's newsletter.

In the next month we will be attending Barnards Farm Open Day, Jaguars at the Castle at Warwick Castle, and The Warren Car show.

I am looking to plan one or maybe two Sunday drives after the end of the car season. If anyone has any ideas of a pleasant drive we can do, with a nice restaurant where we can have a Sunday lunch please let me know.

We still have a few spaces left for our Peak District Tour 4-7 September 2020, full details can be found in our newsletter. Once the spaces are gone they are gone, so please don't leave it too late to book.

I look forward to seeing many of you at our next club night will be on Tuesday 3rd September at Langdon Hills Golf Club. We will be starting this evening earlier at 8pm, with a talk by Emma Airey from Hiscox Vehicle Insurance.

Happy Motoring

Graham Cook

Chairman, Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club, Essex Thameside Region
