Vintage Motor Vehicle club set to unveil home
VINTAGE MOTOR VEHICLES: The Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club is getting set to host its first meeting for 2016 at the club's newly acquired clubhouse at Jabour Park in Vere St, South Grafton.
Since the acquisition of the clubhouse and oval many hours have been given by dedicated club members in the restoration and painting of both internal and external spaces.
The kitchen was given an upgrade through funds received from a grant that has assisted in the cost of purchasing appliances.
The oval has been resurrected from the long grass is expected to be utilised by other sporting clubs for training and other purposes.
Throughout this year the club will hold static displays on the oval, which may incorporate some night events, as the ground is under lights.
An extensive refurbishment, along with a security system, has been implemented at the premises.
The clubrooms give our club a base for meetings, functions and eventually a metalwork Men's Shed, is on our wish list. This will give members and those interested in repair and rebuild of anything metal. The club as received so far donations of lathes and metal work equipment.
The first meeting will be focused on launching a new concept toward Sunday meetings with the first being held on Sunday, February 14 at 4pm. This will be followed by a barbecue. This will allow members to bring their club vehicle out in daylight hours and enjoy the new clubhouse's 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 the new security system.
