We were invited by Colin Field of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club (Essex Thameside Region) to attend their Classic Car Day at the Battlesbridge Antiques Centre. I assumed it would be just us and the Jaguars, but it turned out to be much more  than that. Several other clubs were also present. I may be biased, but I believe our line up of cars was  the most impressive. This "low key" event turned out to be nothing but that  and was very popular with our members and we had 18 cars on display.  It was nice to welcome brand new members to an event for the first time and to see comparatively new members turning out again as well as the old stalwarts. It was a good social day, in decent weather. A few photographs of the day follow:

The field kitchen busily preparing tea, coffee

and the customary bacon rolls

No sooner did I take this view and another car would be added to the end.

See what I mean - two extra cars! good job it is digital these days

"New kids on the block" a striking 2.8 belonging to Colin & Deidre Peachey

More new members, Mark and Collette Kingswell attend their first event in their nice 2.9i Kallista

Enthusiasts on parade were: John Ferry, Colin & Deidre Peachey, Mark & Collette Kingswell, Dave & Gill McGrath, Bob & Gill Maxwell, John & Linda Deed, Peter Heales, Bernard Lyster, Jim and Gill Ballantyne, Les and Pearl Pratt, Mike and Sandie Bailey, Tom and Doll Merritt, Wally and Val Herbert, Don and Margaret Scriven, Colin and Elaine Wigham, Steve and Trish Williams, George & Shelagh Newell and Roy and Jennifer Biddle. 

John and Sue Gibson will be pleased to see their former Brooklands Kallista looking so good and back on wire wheels. The car now belongs to John Ferry. Bob Maxwell's white Kallista also looks great following re-trimming by Bruno.

Our thanks go to Colin Field for inviting us to this enjoyable event and for their club's hospitality.
