Our February meeting this year falls on Valentine's Day, and some members have said that they best spend the evening with their better halves rather than us! Very poor commitment, and we would naturally ignore them, but suspect that much of Tafarn Treganna might also be filled with couples staring sickeningly into each other's eyes, and we're keen to avoid this!
As such we have decided that February's meeting will be moved to a different evening -Wednesday 13 February. Feeling excitied at changing the day for one month we're also going to change the venue and have a curry night instead. The meeting will be held at Indiaah in Pontyclun! Log into the forum for more details!
2018 saw the club put on a Welsh Festival of Land Rovers at the Royal Welsh Spring Festival, and we've been invited back to put on another display for 2019 (18 and 19 May).
The club is very excited at the prospect, and plan for 2019 to be even more impressive that last year!
Stay tuned for further updates!
It is with great sadness that we have learnt that our friend and member Gwyn Williams has passed away. Both Gwyn and his lightweight were very popular within the club, and will be deeply missed.
We send our condolences to Gwyn's family and friends.
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!
