Colchester Vintage Motor Club
Formed in 1967 by a group of young enthusiasts, the club now has over 200 members owning a wide range of vehicles, all of which were manufactured before the end of 1939. It is not a requirement of membership, however, to own a pre-war vehicle, but entry to
certain events is restricted to members driving such a vehicle.
A wide variety of activities are organised throughout the year, a monthly meeting taking place generally on the third Thursday in the Colchester or Ipswich areas. Winter meetings may take the form of illustrated talks, film shows, quizzes and antiques evenings, but in the summer months motoring events predominate, road runs and an annual camping weekend are typical of the events occupying the warmer days or evenings. Motor cycles and commercial vehicles are most welcome in addition to the more usual cars.
A monthly, newsletter is produced, keeping members in touch with events both locally and nationally, as well as providing a forum for their views and experiences.
The annual subscription is payable on the 1 st of January each year and there are two classes of membership full and junior.
FULL MEMBERSHIP, ladies and gentlemen over 18 years are eligible on payment of the annual subscription. Currently the annual subscription is £30.00 for adults having the same address.
JUNIOR MEMBERSHIP, members children can be registered with a ‘one-off’ payment of £1.00, to run until they are 18 years old, or until their parents are no longer members, whichever is the sooner. They have no voting rights.
The fee for joining the club after 1st July is currently £16.00.
There is a club badge available to members, currently the price is £8.00.
New members will be issued with a full copy of the club rules. Both the proposer and the seconder must be full members of the club. If however, you are not known to any existing members, the committee has the power to elect you on receipt of the relevant form. The term ‘ Vintage’ as defined by this club applies to vehicles manufactured before 31st December 1939 for inclusion in the register.
