Rock Opera TOMMY at Blackpool Winter Gardens


The winter Gardens in Blackpool are putting on a live show of Tommy during this autumn. They have offered a group discount for the VVC at 25 per seat, with the option of parking scooters securely at the front of the venue. If there is any interest in this we would need a local member to co-ordinate with the management at the Winter Gardens and to be prepared to effectively run it as a VVC local event. The contact at the Winter Gardens is Sinead Bywater 01253 629666, sales1@wintergardensblackpool.co.uk. If anyone takes this on it would be good if you could contact the club management via the web site, and after the event supply photos and/or a story to the journal editor.

VVC Health and Safety Policy 2015


The VVC health and safety policy has been updated to reflect the introduction of a "Buddy System" for ride outs. The link to this is as always at the bottom of the home page. Please take a minute to have look, if you would like to volunteer as a buddy any member of the committee would love to hear from you. Having a good pool will ensure we have great ride outs where we look after each other and above all HAVE FUN !!

EXHIBITION SCOOTERING 51-61


What a great place to promote the Veteran Vespa Club. We had a number of members bikes parked outside the Mozzino Expresso Bar which attracted a good deal of public interest. The bar itself, although small has been given a thoroughly retro style. Together with plenty of 50's Vespa Club photo's supplied by the club, very good coffee and pastries the whole presentation is very 'tasteful' The bikes outside pictured below were there only on the 10th August. The pictures and Vespa related items in the bar (not the bikes outside) will stay for a while, give them a visit if in London,



STOLEN SCOOTERS

It seems that this is a growing problem. We have the kind permission of the LCGB to offer a link on this site to their National Stolen Scooter Registry, NSSR, which is for all makes of scooter. Click Here
