Thank you for visiting the ‘New Forest’ Centre’s web site.

The New Forest Centre is very fortunate to be situated around the ‘New Forest National Park’, which covers an area of 566 square kilometres. This provides a great backdrop for our short day tours and social events.

Our ‘Events’ page holds information on the choice of events we arrange, so please check this out, and where dates and times can be found. We also provide 3 monthly evening meetings, and they can be found under ‘Noggins’ and are spread across our catchment area, to provide a local link for our 160 members.

We would be pleased to see you at these meetings, where you can find out how our Centre provides the interest and support to its members. A quick call or email to the nominated member for the respective meeting is all it takes.

Should you be considering or planning to purchase an Austin Healey, please call us, and assistance will be at hand to guide you on the models available, together with the technical side if needed. We also have two registered club ‘Valuers’, who can value Austin Healeys for insurance purposes for current members.

We look forward to you joining us, as we enjoy our cars and base our events on the social aspect, therefore providing the best we can for our members.

Club and Centre History!

Jim Finch has discovered a history of the Austin Healey Club, first published in 1986 for the 25th anniversary of the Club in that year’s International Healey Weekend brochure. Why not wallow in the past and immerse yourself in high Club politics!  You’ll find the article in our history section at
