Allan and Janet are the joint AO's for Essex.
Allan has had a number of triumphs over the years his first was a MK3 Spitfire bought the week Triumph announced it was to stop making Spitfires. I have since had all sorts of Triumphs from Dolomites to TR7 and back to Spitfires.
so I have been around Triumph cars for 30+years.
I originally did a mechanical engineering apprenticeship which led to me fiddling with cars and making bits for them which I do to this day on my cars and club members cars,then got fed up being stuck in a factory and went in to countryside management I am now an Operations manager for a Ranger team in a Regional park. I currently have a spitfire and a stag and luckily a very understanding Wife who is joint AO with me in other words she does all the work and I take all the credit.
Janet my first boyfriend had a spitfire in the 70's who it wasn't Allan and I always said I would have one of my own but have ended up sharing one with Allan.
I have a forces background originally joining up as a wren, I went on to MOD and Dhss before becoming a practice manager in the NH's. Allan and I spend all our weekends planning or doing stuff with triumphs and yes I do do most of the work!.
we have a very active club with regular members who support us and the club in all sorts of activities. From camping, to drives out, weekends away, holidays and after noon teas to name but a few.
