Despite best efforts to get our club booked into Eastbourne car show on Sunday 30 April, we have been unsuccessful. But: we are booking a block for us on SATURDAY 29 APRIL. 

About 12 places have already been taken for SATURDAY. If you wish to come to this very busy event, please let Shirley know immediately to be sure of a place.

Sunday 19th March 2017

Our Kent Area 4 Jaguar Drivers' Club had a good start with a well attended AGM. We have successfully filled the very important posts of Treasurer: Nick Taylor, and Webmaster: Pete Wright, and welcome Sonia Wright onto the Committee.

There is our Chairman's review of 2016 in the 'Events Reports' tab.

Club Nights:

Our February club night was quite a highlight with a brilliant talk on Astronomy from Jason Hall of the Ashford Astronomical Society. 

Our next treat tomorrow, 20th March, will be a return of Roy Tysack, a retired police officer who will be talking about Murder Investigation and CSI. He was excellent last year, so we are all looking forward to it.

Our April club night will be on Easter Monday, so will just be a 'natter' evening.

Car Shows:
Please ensure you let the 'contact' named in the calendar know when attending our chosen shows, so we can ask the event organisation for sufficient space for our lovely cats. Let a member of the committee know if you need any help booking in to shows.

Please see our calendar for the events we are attending as a Club. (Events Calendar tab)

Spring Lunch: Return to Cobham Hall on Sunday 9th April
Bookings have come in thick and fast for this lovely event, and the deadline will be Monday 27 March - a few places available.

National Drive It Day:
We will again be celebrating National Drive It Day (when all owners of classic and special cars are encouraged to take them out on the roads to show the public) with a tour for an hour or so to a venue for a buffet lunch. This will start at the Holiday Inn Hotel at Hothfield, and part of the route will be a section of the route the National JDC tour took in Kent in October last year - those of us who took part in the national tour thoroughly enjoyed the challenges this presented!

Weekend Away:
At our meeting in February it was decided our weekend away this year will be Friday 22nd to Monday 25th September, and a venue is being found, possibly a Warners hotel not too far away. Watch this space! Please let Shirley Simmons know if you wish to join the club for a fun weekend. Members are of course then free to book for the National JDC Tour of the Cotswolds on 7th October - see the Jaguar Driver magazine or website for details.

Brands Hatch Track Day!
Rob Harris won this entry which was most kindly donated by Terry Dye when he came to talk to us last October, and he spent the day at Brands Hatch with his XK8. He now has a big grin on his face! as seen in Events Reports.

Webmaster Request
Please send Pete Wright any items you think would be good to be included on our site - it's our site so send in your news and photos!

Please don't hesitate to contact me or a member of the committee if you have any queries about the Club. New members always most welcome.

With best wishes
Liz Whitebread
Secretary, Jaguar Drivers' Club - Kent Area 4
