We are organised, if that isn’t too strong a word for it, by me, Nick Devonport. I can be contacted on 07833 623630, by post at 28 Bridgeside, Deal, Kent, CT14 9SS or by email nick_devonport@hotmail.com. Three regular runs take place: my Birthday Run on the nearest Sunday to the 24th January and which starts and finishes at the Dover Transport Museum, the Summer Camp in July and the Headcorn Aerodrome Run in September. Details can be found in the Club Calendar.

We also support local events run by the aforementioned Transport Museum and it’s thanks to one of our guys, Andrew Johns, that some of the mopeds in their collection are now in running order. We welcome new members and look forward to seeing friends old and new at our events.

The Summer Camp has been arranged for the weekend of 7-9 July and will be based at the Kingsdown International Camping Centre, The Avenue, Kingsdown, Deal, Kent, CT14 8DU.  Telephone the site on 01304 373713 to make your booking and tell than that you’re part of my group. We’ll have an afternoon run out on Saturday and a longer run starting at 1100 (signing on from 1000 please) and taking in the Dover Transport Museum’s Classic Car Show, on the Sunday.

The Headcorn Aerodrome Run is on September 23-24 – Headcorn Aerodrome, Shenley Road, Headcom, Ashford TN27 9HX. Saturday 1pm & Sunday 10am start. Nick 07833 623630 or nick_devonport@hotmail.com for info.

Finally, at the age of sixty, I have recently retired from what I laughingly call my career with Border Force and have handed back my handcuffs, much to Isabelle’s relief.  It will be strange getting used to not getting up at silly o’clock for early shifts, not having to work nights and buying my own stationery but  I hope to get to a few more runs in future and to see new areas of the country in the company of like-minded enthusiasts.
