Group Leader: Rod Richardson reports growing attendance at the monthly club nights: “The Moat this month saw 21 TRs in the car park for a lovely summer’s evening. Also the Red Lion saw plenty of TRs and a warm welcome to many new faces. We had a very interesting TR3 based car at our moat club night and very rare two (as photo).
Many Kent Group members made the drive up to the International this year. Some were camping, others were staying in b&b. A fantastic show with the whole weekend being warm and sunny. Two Kent Group members were awarded prizes for entering Concours and Pride of Ownership; well done.

GL Rod Richardson reports that: “Club nights at the new venue, the Red Lion, are going well with good attendance and many TRs turning up, so we would like to thank many members for your support of this new venue.
Drive it Day saw lovely weather of sunshine and good turn-out of over 20 cars all of whom had a lovely drive out through Ashdown forest to Wakehurst Place; this saw the Kent group winning the mileage award this year.
This year’s Kent Tour was organised by Bob Mortimar and was a great run through some lovely Kent countryside with a lovely pub lunch at the Plough in Leigh, was followed by a lovely afternoon run to an interesting place called Luddingstone Castle; thanks Bob, for a great day.
The trip to Laon, France weekend went well with 14 TRs and one lonely MGB. On the Saturday we had good dry weather run through some lovely French country side. Shame about the Sunday which was a very rainy day but did not dampen our enjoyment of the day and in the evening at a lovely restaurant we gave Steve and Angie the most breakdowns award which we have heard has pride of place on his mantelpiece. We would also like to thank John Richardson for organising the mugs which every couple received to remind them of a great weekend which we all enjoyed.
The last piece of news I have to give you is that last Sunday on a lovely sunny day some TRs went to Hamstreet Classic car show was a lovely show with many classic and modern cars. There was also some nice stalls for the ladies.
Please book in with Barry Epps if you wish to attend Duxford show on the 28th July; also we have Cranleigh car show on 18th August. Barry has reserved a club stand but must have numbers soon.
