      As I am sure you are all aware, our Club will be exhibiting at the UK’s biggest and best classic car show, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show on the 11th to the 13th November 2016.
      We will be on stand 5-430 and we will be showing a Light 15 1954, (Peter Marley), Big 15 1954 (Paul de Felice), Big 6 1953 (Steve Southgate), Light 15 1937 (Tim Newing), and a Normale 1953 (Dave Butcher).
      The organisers have asked all Clubs to promote their own individual Hero who they feel has had a significant effect on the automotive industry. From our view point we are indeed fortunate that Andre Citroen made the heroic decision to manufacture the Traction Avant. We have created a brief photographic history of his too short life, and we hope you are pleased with the result.
      Peter Simper has put a lot of thought and effort into creating a professional presence for us, and of course all of us who are manning the stand, would love to have a chat with any of you who are visiting the Show.
      This is a great opportunity for our Club to encourage new members or meet with existing members. The more people we have on our stand, to chat to and welcome new prospects the better. New members are the life blood of our Club.
      We look forward to the show and to meeting new and old friends at this exciting show.

          The theme of the event was “Our Hero” and to that end the club made a great deal of M. Andre Citroen and his contribution to motoring history . Sadly few if any of the other stands made any effort at all and our labours were not recognised by the organisers of the show which was disappointing. It was though a very good stand and the dismembered Traction proved to be a great subject of interest.
