Its that time again, this year's Registers weekend is but a few weeks away and hopefully you have all got it in your calendars 3rd-5th July at Burleigh Hill Farm, St Ives, Cambs PE27 3LY. As with previous years the main day is on the Sunday, with on-site camping available from Friday for those who wish to make a weekend of it.
There is plenty to do in and around the area. The historic town of St Ives is on the doorstep, home of Oliver Cromwell and which boasts a fine medieval bridge and picturesque quayside. There is also a good array of shops and pubs to choose from. Further afield Huntington and Cambridge are within easy reach and there is also the Fen to explore, leading to the Cathedral cit of Ely and beyond.
We are keeping entry prices the same as last year, which are as follows:
Members rates: Non Member rates:
Whole weekend per adult
day visit (whether Sat or Sun) per adult per day
Unfortunately, there is no pre booking available this year due to the date the National falls on, and our current web software cannot cope with multiple pre booking instances. So apologies for this,,, its back to the olden days of pay on the gate only.
The site is open from Friday afternoon onwards. There is plenty of space and decent facilities on site ... proper toilets and warm showers as well as portaloos d0tted around.
Registers Day Itself
To those who have not been before, this is the closest 2cvgb gets to an annual, Shine and to show off our cars and line thnity show' day. It gives us all an opporturnity to show off our cars and line them up by register, and enjoy a spot of A series indulgence!
However, unlike other shows, there is no obligation to set about your car with the polish, it is more of a Pride of Ownership ethos, and all are welcome in the displays, whether your car is an immaculate show piece or a well loved daily hack.
The event gets going from around 10.30am on the Sunday, with a programme of events for the day including a cavalcade, voting for your favourite cars, raffle , prize giving as well as trade stands, flea market and food and bar on site are most welcome and pitches are free of charge. We only request a prize for the raffle. Club members are also welcome to bring their own stuff to sell alongside in the mini flea market.
Any offers of assistance with running the event, before, during or after would be gratefully received, there's plenty of things to get involved with such as a spot of gate duty, selling raffle tickets, marshalling cars etc. Please contact Will Waldron if you are able to help
See you there!
Mark and Sally's Van Chaud and the Red Arrows
1965 HY72 ex Service Departmental D’Incendie et de Secours D’Eure et Loir
Taken outside the fire station in Bonneval near Chartres where it used to be based.
Well the H Van spotters have been out again, my brother Paul and his fianceè Elaine spotted these two van's in Notcuts garden centre in Westbridgeford Nottingham, one selling fish and chips and the other selling your Sunday roast. I bet when they first made the H van in France they never would've thought that it would be used to sell roast beef in a garden centre in Nottingham. On second thoughts I'm sure the french would think what else could the English sell. Roast beef or Fish and Chips. If you are the owners of the vans and are some how reading this then please send me details of the vans and how you come about to be in a garden centre. I'm still surprised how versatile the Hy is. Well Happy New Year to all the H Vanners out there keep sending me any stuff about your Vans.
Could this be the best Hy in the world?
Colin Hughes bought this Hy 11 years ago, and it has taken 2 years to restore.
You must agree what a fantastic job he has made of it, I haven't seen better.
Its time we had a cool pictures board.. send in your pictures of your H Van and get them on the front page....
