Did you miss the New Members’ Day? We had a great time on Saturday (30 Apr). The weather held off and the sun broke through to give us a great day’s motoring. 18 cars (and 3 tin-tops) joined us for the day. We met at the Old Sarum airfield where we breakfasted before a glorious cross-country drive to the Three Legged Cross Pub. In the afternoon, the old hands beat the new members at skittles (only just!) as we enjoyed catching up with old friends and meeting new ones! A busy couple of weeks coming up, with Derek & Julie’s Reasonable Weather Wednesday drive on Wednesday (4 May), a visit to the Pitt Lane Classic Cars Workshops on Saturday 14 May and the Beaulieu Autojumble on 21-22 May! Keep an eye open on the Events Page to see the latest on what’s going on.
We Would Like Your Ideas
At our AGM in December we presented a three year plan for a major Club event each year from 2016 to 2018. Our 2017 plan is well under way and is to mark the 50th Anniversary of the New Forest Centre with a major celebration at Bucklers Hard. For 2016 we would like to arrange an interesting day out that would appeal most to the New Forest Centre membership. WE’D LIKE YOUR IDEAS for a fun place to visit with our Healeys. No commitment to organise (unless you’d like to) so please email any ideas to Dave Larder at email@example.com
The Austin Healey Club
Welcome to the “New Forest Centre” of the Austin Healey Club, based in a beautiful part of the world, which includes the New Forest National Park. This provides a terrific backdrop to our planned driving and socialising events throughout the year, which are many and varied.
We are fortunate to have within our membership a superb breadth of knowledge of all the Austin Healey models that Donald Healey produced. There will be someone that can advise or answer the questions of both new and current members when needed.
Should you be considering or planning to purchase a Healey, please call us, and assistance will be at hand to guide you on the models available and the technical side as well if needed. We also have two registered club ‘Valuers’, who can value Austin Healeys for insurance purposes for current members.
