Tuesday 10th October - Clubnight talk
An open evening featuring a presentation by Stuart Gibbard. Stuart’s talk formed part of the inaugural David Brown Memorial Lecture given to the Aston Martin Heritage Trust. It is entitled ‘The Power behind the Glory’ and focuses on the David Brown organisation and the influence it had on Aston Martin, how Sir David became interested in fast cars, and the connections between facets of his company and how they affected Aston Martin. Venue is The Constitutional Club in Broad Street, Spalding, PE11 1TB. Meet from 7.30 for 8pm start.
All welcome. £3/head.
In September, we have a clubnight run to The Red Lion at Newton nr Folkingham on Tuesday 12th.
We also have members of the Club heading off to the Peak District on a tour kindly arranged by Brian Patmore.
In October, we have an exciting talk by Stuart Gibbard and a brunch meeting.

Well done to Alan Aistrup, Steve Saunders and all involved in organising our display at the Sleaford Classic Car & Motorcycle Show, where we won the Best Club stand award.
Thanks also to everyone who supported the Moulton Park Show.
Thanks to Jean & Paul Pollard for organising our clubnight run to Ivy’s at Swineshead and to John & Pauline Read for another terrific Trundle in Norfolk; also to the many members who supported these events. We are also grateful to those who supported our presence at Boston and Stamford Classic Car Shows.
Thanks to all who supported our July events; both the water taxi trip organised by Terry Carter (shame about the weather) and the barbecue down at Fenland Airfield on 25th (where it was excellent).
Thanks to all who supported our Charity Fun Day on 25 June in aid of Myeloma UK. In all, combined with monies donated from our Annual Classic Car Run, we raised £2000. Your generosity is appreciated.
Huge thanks too to Barry & Liz Aistrup and everyone in their team for putting on such a brilliant Annual Classic Car Run. Around 65 cars started the event from Spalding Golf Club and headed through Lincolnshire on a 50 mile run to an excellent lunch halt at Branston Hall Hotel near Lincoln. After lunch there was a further 38 miles of driving to the finish on the Terrace at Belvoir Castle in Rutland. Prizes were presented by His Grace The Duke of Rutland to our winners:
The Lyon’s Pride Trophy, judged by the organisers, was awarded to Steve and Val Freeman for their 1956 Jaguar XK140.
The ‘Car of the Day’ voted for by all participants was David and Sian Thomas’ 1948 Jaguar MkIV.
