Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club has a new shed

Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club combined the official opening of the new workshop shed with the National Drive Your Holden day Sunday November 26 at Jabour Park, South Grafton.

The two bay, two-hoist shed, has been in the pipeline for a couple of years. Rex Gow and Club President Doug Clark did the official duty of cutting the ribbon and declaring the shed open. The 60 members present were treated to a free sausage sandwich and a bucket of hot chips.

The shed is available for use by members needing a hand or a hoist to fix their vehicles. Ken Norton and John Smith are overseeing the shed’s usage.

The National Drive Your Holden Day organised remotely by the Holden Appreciation Society was celebrated on the day the first ever Holden rolled off the assembly line at Fisherman’s Bend. We had 30 Holdens displayed at Jabour Park from the very first to the very last Holden models and a host of other makes and models.

GVMVC members with Holdens are also invited to display their Holdens at the Yamba Museum River Street Yamba on weekends in Decembers 2pm – 4.30pm or midweek Tuesdays through Thursdays 10am – 4.30pm to coincide with the Museums Holden Love Affair exhibition from the personal collection of Bill Barnier.

Members are reminded to contact Ken Norton or Robyn Dunstan regarding the Club Christmas party as soon as possible. Check details in the latest edition of The Grille.
