WELCOME TO ORKNEY VINTAGE CLUB
The purpose of this website is to let you know a little bit about Orkney Vintage Club and the range of activities we have planned for 2021, whether you are a visitor to Orkney or a resident.
As the Covid 19 pandemic is still with us we are not sure all the events listed on the Events 2021 page will go ahead. They may be cancelled or the event may be changed to comply with social distancing requirements. Updates on the events will be made clear on Facebook, and this site. When events are to go ahead in some form they will be advertised in The Orcadian and Radio Orkney.
September Run will be held on Sunday 19th September. Vehicles should gather at the Glaitness School car perk at 10.30am for a run to Ness Battery in Stromness, arriving at 2.00pm. Andrew Hollinrake will show us the gun site and troops accommodation.
The run to Stromness will take in some intersting roads and we will stop at Stromness Pier Head about 12.30 for lunch. Bring a picnic or book a space at a cafe, there are two nearby.
The Magazine and Subscription Evening we usually have in February will not happen this year so we are writing to all members to ask for their renewals by post. We have the new magazine ready to distribute now. Thanks!
The Club was formed on 23rd November, 1982 and caters for all types of enthusiast, those owning or interested in cars, tractors, stationary engines, motor cycles, farm implements and machinery, household items etc, in fact the list is endless.
