A ‘NEGLECTED’ car club is roaring back to its former glory after a much-needed revival and members are calling for people to get involved.
Established in 1934, Harrow Car Club was founded by motor enthusiasts and has endured for decades, despite a recent downturn.
Gary Fryer, vice-chairman of the newly formed Harrow Car Club committee, however, is confident that with a new website, a new committee that he formed, and its first AGM held on Friday last week, things are looking up once again for Harrow Car Club.
“The club has been a bit neglected to be honest,” Mr Fryer said. “But we are confident we can get back to our former strength.”
On Tuesday, June 4, the club held its annual gathering at the Windmill Pub in Chipperfield, Herts, where old friends got together and had their beloved motors judged by experts.
Mr Fryer, a property developer, said: “We had 50 cars there, which is much more than our concours last year, and we are hoping to build on that. We have about 100 members, but we are looking to expand. It was great to see the club return to its former glory, so that is something to build on and we have plenty of upcoming events.
“I have been involved with this club since the 70s; it means a lot to all of us. We are doing things properly now with a treasurer and a committee and everything to run it properly.”
Those appointed to the roles on the new committee are undertaking six-month positions, so as to not prove too daunting a commitment.
Whether you want an opportunity to give your vintage car that has been gathering dust in storage a well-deserved airing, or you want to get involved in grassroots motor racing, Harrow Car Club want you to get involved.
Annual membership for the club is £18, and for information on how to join the club visit www.harrowcarclub.net.
