ESKDALE LAKE DISTRICT RALLY
Judging by the response of those who attended our final rally this 50th anniversary year it was a real success. Our thanks to Chris & Rosie Wainwright who gave so freely of their time and talents to make this event so memorable. Even the weather was kind to us with sunshine throughout the weekend. With this the rideouts were nothing but spectacular as were the fireworks which closed the rally on Sunday evening. Pictures now available on the Rallies Page. Click here

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. 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
