Latest news

From the 1st May 2017 the annual subscription rate is being increased from £12.00 to £15.00.  Also as you may have read in the March newsletter we will now be producing the  newsletter quarterly instead of the usual 5 issues, this is to cut down on postage and production costs, but not on quality.   As there now will be no May newsletter your membership renewal forms will be included in the June newsletter with the added advantage of being able to pay by BACS if you prefer.    Karyn

Sunday 30th July  KHVC Classic Car Show   10 am – 4pm

  I hope that many of you can come along and take part and catch up with friends and other car enthusiasts.  We start at 10am and as always there is no need to book, just turn up.
We are having a  tombola stall this year instead of the raffle, Please can I ask for prize donations to build up the tombola stall, if you could this would be much appreciated and help fund our two chosen charities, the Air Ambulance and MacMillan Nurses  funds.
If you would like to supply a prize and if possible please could you arrange to hand it over to a committee member prior to the show day, so we can prepare the stall ready for the show, if not, then on the day will be alright.  Thank you.

For details please contact Tim Ralphs 01547 550589.  Gwynfor Benjamin 01584 875258.

Dave Humphries 01584 878778.

The Discovery Centre has a well equipped café and will be serving Sunday Lunch,
Please call 01588 676060 to book for Sunday Lunch as it is very popular.

I appreciate that this is therefore late notice but it would be lovely if some of your members would like to attend Scarecrow Day this year (SUNDAY 6TH AUGUST) at Brampton Bryan.

The day starts at 11.00 and ends at 5.00.  Any exhibitors would need to be parked up by 10.30 please.  There will be free entry to the day for all vintage car owners attending.  As you may remember space on the main cricket field is not entirely limitless, so it would be good to have a feel for how many you might be.

I very much hope that this appeals to your members and I look forward to hearing from you.

With thanks and best wishes

Sunday 10th – After leisurely breakfast leave on the narrow mountain road to Tregaron.
Tregaron onto Devils Bridge with a lunch stop at either dependent on progress.
From Devils Bridge we will take the Elan Valley Road and finish in Rhayder.
We have stayed at the Lake House many, many years ago and remember the Hotel as being slightly quirky but of a good standard. Trip advisor reports look very positive.
We have arranged a Dinner, bed and breakfast tariff of £225.00 per couple per room for the Club and if you are interested if you could let me know ASAP so that numbers can be established, you can then book your room directly with the Hotel at the rate mentioned. The hotel has a swimming pool and spa, 50 plus acres of
grounds and is dog friendly as long as they don’t want to use the spa!
Looking forward to a good fun weekend for likeminded Classic car and countryside enthusiasts!
