Clarence Valley Motoring enthusiasts now have a new facility to pursue and extend their passion for anything automotive, with the establishment of a permanent home to exhibit and display their various motor vehicle of all makes, models and age.
This has become possible through the efforts of members of the Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club who have assumed the lease of the Club Rooms & Sports Ground located at Jabour Park, South Grafton.
Although the club has been established since 1962, this is the first and only occasion that the Club has a permanent place to call home and at the same time promote the history of automobile.
Since taking over the Jabour Park area, the club has transformed the Club rooms and surrounds from a rundown and neglected state to a fresh and more user friendly facility.
This has come about by an enthusiastic and strong core of volunteers from the Car Club, who have put in countless hours and much effort into the transformation of the club rooms. The result is a credit to those volunteers which will guarantee a far more usable area for those motor enthusiasts and any other organisation who now have an opportunity to use the club rooms for their own promotions and activities.
Already, organisms such as the Relay for Life Campaign, Blacksmiths Convention and the Majo’s Football Club who use the sports ground area for both junior and senior soccer training.
Anyone interested in hiring out the Club rooms can contact either Doug Clark on 0427 665 200 or Ken Norton on 0403 521 468, who can assist with your enquiry.
Alternatively, prospective hirers can inspect the Jabour Park area on any Wednesday, at which time a car club representative/volunteer are on site, completing their continuing upgrade and improvement program.
On the forthcoming long weekend, the Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club will be hosting the Annual Truck Display, which has become a feature of the holiday weekend Trucking Weekend.
It is anticipated that at least 100 trucks will be on display and entry to view the trucks is free to the public.
Membership to Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club is open to anyone who has an interest in automotive history. It is not necessary to own a historic or vintage motor vehicle or bike, to become a member.
