South East, Canterbury Area news
04 April 2015
April report from the Canterbury Area
News and views from the South east

“The Duke” was crowded when we arrived, but we all squeezed in for our monthly get-together.
John G had brought his little Sprite as his 13/60 has the body off for a major refit and he doesn't expect it to be ready this year. It looks and sounds lovely. Paul S had the Gentry which has just had an 8 speed semi auto gearbox fitted. Yes, really! It's amazing what you can find on well known auction websites. It still hasn't got windows though. Derek H had his well sorted Stag with the moody green interior lighting and reported that a good time was had motoring round New Zealand in a motorhome. Ray P made it to the meet with his new tin knee and is making slow but steady progress. Let's hope we took his mind off it for a couple of hours.
I can report that both the Stag and the Spitfire have passed their respective MOTs and are willing and ready to be used. Or they were yesterday!
I have to report to members that Reg N is still not well. I'm sure you will join me in wishing him well for a speedy recovery.
As it's still dark at eight o'clock, we didn't take either of our cars with an Mot. Next month, however, it would be nice to have the field available if Neil is agreeable. This has been a fantastic addition to our Summer club meets as we can have impromptu car shows and not have to mingle with the ordinary cars in the car park. It has also proved an attraction to ordinary pub customers, many of whom come and stroll round the assembled classics.
I've been looking at the new TSSC website and have realised that I can post these newsletters there for everyone to read. This will help our advertising because we always need new members to come along and swell the ranks.
Drive it Day preparations are well in hand. When I say “well in hand”, what I mean is that I know where we are going it's just that I'm not sure how we will get there! This mystery event is on Sunday 26th. April so put it in your diary.
Canterbury Cathedral Open Gardens is Saturday and Sunday 30/31 May. You should have received the e mail from me with the application form to be sent directly to Victoria at the Cathedral. Contact me if you need another.We shall be attending on both days.
June 21st sees the Rare Breeds Classic and Vintage show. An £8 fee applies to this, but as everyone in the car gets in free it's seems good value. I've suggested this as a club run. Application forms from
Phil the Stag reports that the Classic cars on the Green at Bearsted is a pleasant event.This is on the 19th. July and I suggest this as a club run. This event is limited to 200 cars and is run to support the Kent Air ambulance. There is a fee of £7.50, £5 of which goes to the ambulance trust.You do need to apply early though so I shall be doing that today. Forms are available from
Many thanks to those members who send through events. What would be good is for suggestions for places to go, preferably somewhere we haven't been before. So thinking caps on! Please let me know if I have forgotten anything or made a significant error: it's not uncommon.
Regards, Phil R
