28th  Drive it Day
              This is when the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs
               encourage owners to get their historic cars out onto the open road
               in order to make the general public aware of our existence.
               The date held is the anniversary of the first 1000 mile trial
               originally held in 1900.
               This year it follows the norm of meet, drive,  tea stop, drive, lunch
               Plans are underway for the run  by kim and dave hyde  (events
               officer) but I can tell you we are staying in our green and
               pleasant land.
               No doubt anniversary plaques will be available.
               these either with or without the year added
               orders will be taken closer to the date as group discounts are
               available with considerable savings
