Well, all the effort turned out to be worthwhile. Apart from the downpour we had on Friday in Brighton, which really tested the waterproofs we had decent weather. The turnout was really good with around a hundred people at the event with ninety for the meal. A big thank you to all who helped make this event a success. This was a team effort by committee and club members. Click here
The really good weather contributed to making this a memorable weekend, located on a superb holiday park in Swanage. Over the weekend the club collected money for the local children's hospice, Julia's House, and raised £256. Well done everyone. Also a big thank you to Bob Box and Richard Rawlins for a superb well organised event. Click here

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.
