Margaretting Fun Day Saturday 14th July 2018 A real fun day. The sun shone for us all day. Around 30 classic cars on site included, Hillman Avenger, Morris Marina, split screen Morris Minors, Lancia and many more. Local school children dancing around the Maypole. The Spitfire flypast was exciting both to see & hear. Beer tent & BBQ kept visitors fed & watered. A sheep dog rounding up ducks and guiding them through obstacles was very entertaining.
25th London to Southend Sunday 1st July 2018
Our 25th annual London to Southend Classic Vehicle Run was a show stopper. The sun had shone for us all day long.
Leaving at nine o’clock in the morning, from Fairlop Waters in Hainault, under the direction of the starting flag of the Mayor of Redbridge, the first vehicle to leave was Buttercup the club Morris Minor Van. Other classic vehicles set off on a leisurely 50 mile run through the sleepy towns and villages of Essex, concluding at Southend-On-Sea’s wonderful City Beach area.
Assembling along the seafront, near the dancing fountains, together with more classic vehicles, provided a magnificent static display of vehicles from the 1930s right through to the 1980. 
Every entrant was presented with a Participant Rally Plate in Silver to celebrate this 25 year run, a ‘goodie bag’ and a Commemorative Silver Plaque to celebrate the event. 
Entertainment on the city Beach, was provided from 10am right through to 4.30pm by our DJ & master of ceremonies Peter May, from ‘Flippin Mental’. We also had 4 Storm Troopers (Star Wars) members of UK Garrison.
Well done to all who took part to make this a very special event.
Steam & Cider Fair Saturday 30th June 2018 A very good day. A nice show of members cars. The weather was really kind to us with wall to wall sunshine.Plenty to see and do at this event. Steam vehicles large & small. Country & western singers on stage. As usual the club stand had a lot of attention. Well done to the organisers and all those who attended.
Fathers Day Motorfest Barleylands Sunday 17th June A fathers dream. So many cars, vans, trucks & bikes to admire. A cool day for Fathers Day Motorfest held at Barleylands. Hundreds of vehicle on display with a very long queue waiting to get in but the wait was worth it. The event went well and we had a good turnout by club members.
Vintage & Nostalgia Wiltshire 1st-3rd June 2018 A pleasant 2 1/2 hour run around the M25, down the M3 and along the A303, past Stonehenge and you arrive at a hidden gem in the heart of the Wylye valley, The Vintage Nostalgia Festival.
This is one of the most popular vintage festivals in the south, with nearly 8,000 people descended on Stockton Park for a weekend of all things vintage, featuring a display of around 250 classic cars, a line-up of retro music, and dancing in the three music tents and lots, lots more.
The event focuses on the past and celebrates all that was great from before the turn of the century up to the 1980's. So whatever your interest, Vintage/Classic Cars, Veteran Cycles, Vintage Fashion, antiques, rusty automobila, dance and music.
The festival is run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts

The Enfield Pageant Sunday 27th May 2018 A few members went to The Enfield Pageant. This is a great three day show although we only went on the Sunday. As usual there was a large auto jumble so plenty to spend your hard earned cash on. A good selection of cars, vans & lorries to see. The motor bike stunt show was well worth watching. Also a nice selection of motorcycles to admire.

Billericay Soapbox Derby 7th May 2018 Again this year we had our own soapbox entered in this event. Our team of designers, constructors & pitstop crew all did a magnificent job. A nice sunny day with a good turn out of members cars.
Some really whacky soapbox designs which made for some good fun runs with really very fast times. Our very own Prince Harry & Meghan (Craig & 
blow up doll) came 17th.

Drive It Day 22nd April 2018 North Weald Aerodrome

The 22nd of April turned out to be a beautiful, warm, sunny day for the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs annual National Drive It Day classic car run.
This year, we were invited to join the South Eastern Classic Car Appreciation Society (SECCAS), based in the Canterbury area of Kent, on a run up to North Weald Airdrome, Epping . Almost 40 SEVCVC members, SECCAS members attend this event.
Upon arrival we were welcomed at the gate and guided around the perimeter road to our display area adjacent to the runway, close to the NAAFI & Mess bar.
Tea and coffee were available on arrival and a carvery lunch could be purchased at a very modest cost.
We were treated to a tour of the hangers, complete with a couple of vintage planes and a tour of the site museum.
North Weald has an illustrious history as a military airfield with a history that spans two world wars and beyond. Read the full story in your next edition of “The Bearings”

Members enjoyed the choice of driving double decker open top bus, single decker buses or a Fire engine. A trip around the local area in the open top bus was all part of the day.
