The Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club, will hold its first meeting for 2016 at its newly acquired Club House at Jabour Park, Vere St, South Grafton.
Since the acquisition of our Club House and oval, many hours has been given by dedicated members in the restoration and painting of both the internal and external areas. The kitchen was given an upgrade from a ‘grant’ that has assisted in the cost of purchase of internal cook plates and accessories.
The oval has been uncovered from long grass and will be utilized by other sporting clubs for training etc.
Throughout this year our Club will hold static displays on the oval, which may take in some night events, as the ground is under lights.
An extensive refurbishment, along with a security system has been installed at the premises.
The clubrooms give our Club a base for meetings, functions and eventually a metal work men’s shed, is on our wish list. This will give members and those interested in repair and re-build of anything metal. The club has received donations of lathes and metal work equipment.
The first meeting launching a new concept toward Sunday meetings is on Sunday February 14 at 4pm. This will be followed be a BBQ.
This will allow members to bring their Club vehicle out in daylight hours and enjoy the new club houses facilities.
Renovations have been controlled and organised by events committeeman Ken Norton, Ken has set down all required improvements.
John Smith has been responsible for our security system.
