The Angel Inn, 12th February – 26th March – 6th May

We will be joining Easter CCC at Hawkedon Queen’s Head (IP29 4NN) this January 1st. An interesting and popular day with local Vintage Sports Car Club (principally for cars built pre 1931) in attendance. The VSCC are regular visitors to the ‘Queen’s’ during the year. This proves to be a busy day with some lovely unusual cars arriving. Needless to say the pub will get hectic, but there is additional catering at the adjoining village hall, so you will not go thirsty or hungry. We look forward to seeing you there noon onwards.

Section Representative: Bryan Pullan

Tel: 07513 362202
Email: northern@traction-owners.co.uk

Due to the fact that Northern Section members  are spread over several counties, a regular evening meeting is often difficult to coordinate and we tend instead to meet up at the monthly breakfast events which take place at the Corner House pub at Wrightington, near Standish, which also provides the additional interest of up to a hundred other classic and vintage cars. These informal meetings run from April on the first Sunday of the month, starting at about 9.30 a.m. and going though until lunchtime and we look forward to seeing you there. We also are present at other events throughout the year.

The first meeting at The Corner House will be the customary New Year’s Breakfast on January 1st.
