The weekend of 19 and 20 May saw the inaugral Welsh Festival of Land Rovers at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival in Builth Wells. The weekend was the culmination of several months of hard work between South Wales Land Rover Club and the Royal Welsh organising committee, and saw close to forty Land Rovers, ranging from 1949 to present day, on display at the Royal Welsh showground.
2018 membership fees are now due for the majority of members! This year’s membership remains fantastically good value at £20, and we’d obviously love everybody to renew!
One of the things affecting our membership records this year are the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rules that come into force next month. Basically the GDPR says that we cannot hold a person’s private information for longer than is necessary, or use it for a reason that it has not been provided for.
Have the lengthening days started you thinking, like us, about long summer days and camping? Then why not sign up to join us on the weekend of Friday 15 to Sunday 17 June, when we will be winding our way westward to the Ancient City of St. David's in Pembrokeshire? (We obviously won't be travelling in a straight line though - the journey could possibly go as far north as Mid-Wales...).
It's nearly the end of January, and how many people's New Year's Resolutions have collapsed, or are prooving harder to keep then expected? Good intentions of eating more healthily, or drinking less altogether can be a lot trickier than expected, but there is one easy thing that everyone can do to make this year better than the last - join a club of like minded individuals doing something that you enjoy! Now, I'm not saying that it has to be a Land Rover club that you join, but it might certainly be a good idea if you're interested enough in Solihull's finest products to have visited the site!
Show season is over for another year, and members are grudgingly accepting that whilst it's atmospheric to have a barbeque in the dark, it's probably better that we move indoors and have a non-butaney smelling meal! To that end it has been proposed that we hit the bright lights of Cardiff and have a curry! It's not as easy as slumping into a tent a few feet away at the end of the night, and the evening is definitely poorer without dogs and frisbys, but on the plus side there's no chance of running out of alcohol, or having forgotten a cork-screw!
Saturday 14 October has been put forward as a likely date - head over to the forum to sign up!

The last two years has seen the Big Welsh Car Show take place at Margam Park. This year it's all change as the show moves to its new venue at Chepstow Racecourse.
