SWALE VEHICLE ENTHUSIASTS CLUB
Founded in 1988, the Swale Vehicle Enthusiasts Club (SVEC) is a friendly club catering for all types of vehicular transport. Our current members have a range of vehicles including cars, commercial vehicles, motor-cycles, military transport and other types which date from pre-war vehicles to modern day classics.
We make no demands for any particular age, make, condition or type as long as our Members are enthusiastic and passionate about vehicles, whether petrol, diesel, steam or even electrically propelled. To be a Club Member you don't even need to own a vehicle, as long as you have the interested in them.
There are many benefits to be gained as a member of SVEC:
- Firstly we have a great social life and actively encourage wives, partners and any other family members and friends to join us. We hold a "Christmas Dinner and Dance", a "Club Weekend Away" at an hotel, and a "Drive It Day" to a restaurant for lunch - and all events are open to friends and family.
On the First Thursday of every month we have our regular social evening for members and friends at a local Club
venue (see the Calendar Page for specific events and dates).
- During the year there will be Quiz Nights and Guest Speakers at some Club evenings (details of which are published in our monthly Newsletters and are available online HERE.
- All members receive a monthly copy of our Newsletter either by EMAIL or by post
- We hold our extremely popular Annual Show on the first Sunday in June. This is a great showcase for the club and we normally have in excess of 400 exhibitors on the day. We also promote the Annual Show as a "family day" and so we have lots going on for all ages. We donate a large amount of any profits made to local charities.
- We also attend various car shows around the county and display our vehicles as a club display, and sit in the club gazebo putting the world to rights (sometimes we even talk about cars).
- After being a member for 3 months you will be entitled to borrow tools from our comprehensive "tool box" which includes such things as a power washer, compressor, engine hoist and stand, large spanners and tune up tools etc.etc.
