Marches Festival of Transport & Ludlow Spring Food Fayre
Marches Festival of Transport & Ludlow Spring Food Fayre 12TH, 13TH & 14TH MAY 2023 Ludlow Castle
https://www.ludlowspringfestival.co.uk/ BARRELS OF FUN, FEASTING, LIVE MUSIC AND MOTORS!
Volvo Enthusiasts Club Display Wins Again!
If you have not already visited Ludlow in Shropshire in the Welsh borders, known as the Marches, you have missed one of the most beautiful towns in England.
In the centre of the town is the medieval castle and this had been the home of two Food Festivals and other events over the years but due to increased costs that were to be levied by the Castle Owners this year, the Spring Festival and host of the Marches Transport Festival, was moved to the Ludlow Rugby Club Ground in sight of the Castle and in walking distance, although a very steep route, of the town centre.
The Marches Festival of Transport is held each May with around 200 Classic and Vintage vehicles on display.
A great bonus of the new venue was greater space for both the vehicles and the Food Festival, which also boasts a large Real Ale & Cider Tent – not good for those who had to drive! Also, this year the Event was staged over 3 days.
The Volvo Enthusiasts Club has for several years taken a Club Display organised by Paul Knight one of our Club Co-ordinators, who lives in the town, having taken over from Kevin, our Club Founder, who has displayed his various Classic Volvo’s there for well over 20 years.
Our Volvo Cars on display this year over the weekend were, Paul Knights 1963 Volvo P1800S, one of the very first 1800’s built in Sweden which he uses as everyday transport and was last year the subject of a major restoration due to previous poor workmanship (featured in our Club Magazines), a 1962 Volvo P1800 built by Jensen Motors in West Bromwich, England, owned by our Club Founder, Kevin Price and used by the late Sir Roger Moore in the very first episodes of TV’s The Saint. Robert & Louise Lovegrove’s 1965 Volvo 1800S, Patrick Bunn’s 1972 Volvo 164, Kevin Price’s Volvo V70T5 ex Leicestershire Constabulary Police Car, Derek Russell & Victoria Soal’s 1966 122S (which won ‘Best Car’ attending at our National Gathering this year), Andy & Lynne Marshall’s rare 1965 Volvo 210 Duett, John & Bozena Bush’s 1969 Volvo 123GT, Nick Dimarco’s ex Swedish Military 1954 Volvo TP21 ‘Sugga’ (Radio Command Car) and his 1972 Volvo TGB 111 (Tank Buster), Robert Marshall’s 1993 Volvo 480ES plus finally Kevin’s 1985 Volvo 245DL, which also carried all the stand material for the Club display.
Joining the Volvo’s over the weekend, we had two guest classics, owned by regular members of the Club Display Team. Gary and Jude Deakin joined us with their great looking Triumph Stag. And Mark Tissiman brought along his rare 1965 Split Screen 21 window (Samba) ex California, VW Camper.
Throughout the weekend we enjoyed fantastic weather and enjoyed the various food on offer. For those not driving, the Real Ale & Cider marquee was a great attraction with some 150 Ales and Ciders to choose from. A bit of an embarrassment for the organiser was that it ran out of beer on the Saturday evening, so emergency supplies for delivered by the local Ludlow Brewery for the Sunday!
Congratulations must go to Club and owners of vehicles on display, who won the award for ‘Best Club Display’ at the Event.
So if you fancy joining us next year you need to book early, Individual entries only are allowed, not a Club Booking, so it’s up to you. When you complete your application, confirm in the Club Box that you will be with the Volvo Enthusiasts Club. Entries open in the New Year on the event website - www.marchestransportfestival.co.uk . Please confirm once you have booked with Kevin – email@example.com for stand organisation and numbers with Paul Knight, our display Organiser
Many thanks once again to all those who helped make the event possible, particularly Mick Langdon for driving car to and from Ludlow plus building up the display and all those Members who came along and supported us over the weekend. See you all in May next year.
V.E.C National Gathering 4th June
Volvo Enthusiasts Club ‘National Gathering’ held on Sunday 4th June, 2023
Wythall Transport Museum https://www.wythall.org.uk/
What a fantastic day, with great weather!
This was our Club’s National Gathering, which was held on our usual day, the first Sunday in June, at the Wythall Transport Museum, Chapel Lane, Wythall. Which is situated just off Junction 3 of the M42 in the West Midlands.
The Museum proved to be a great choice as a venue. It contains a large collection of preserved Buses and Coaches from West Midland and other operators, the largest collection of Battery Powered Vehicles e.g. Milk Floats etc; once common sight in our towns, plus a miniature steam railway and other vehicles. There was even the chance to ride on some of the preserved vehicles during our visit and guided tours behind the scenes in the workshops where vehicles are being restored and undergoing routine maintenance.
Attendance at the Event was absolutely fantastic, particularly considering this year the Sunday formed the end of the Whit School Holidays, plus clashes with other pre-booked events. Despite this we had a great attendance of Classic Volvos and Club Members in other vehicles, which included a 1958 Ford Consul and a 1973 Hilman Singer Vogue.
As is our usual event practice, Club Members received complimentary Refreshments, of a Drink and piece of Cake, which was well received judging by the many compliments received both on the day and since on social media.
Awards on the Day:
Judging of the attending Volvo’s was as usual undertaken by Club Members, with additional awards being judged by a team selected from the Club’s Co-ordinators – See the results for award winners. Our thanks once again to Lancaster Insurance for their continued support by sponsoring awards presented on the day.
Our Congratulations to all the Award Winners.
Many thanks to all those Members who came along and supported us, plus particular thanks to those Members who arrived early and helped with setting up, plus also those who helped at the end of the day with the packing up.
Finally, many thanks to Denis Chick and all the volunteer staff, at the Wythall Transport Museum for making us so very welcome plus providing Guided Tours for Club Members and rides on their preserved buses.
A GREAT DAY SPENT AT THE WYTHALL TRANSPORT MUSEUM Go Visit Transport Museum Wythall
We are situated in north Worcestershire, just to the south of Birmingham near to M42 Juntion 3 so we're also handily placed for visitors from the West Midlands and further afield. We have extensive collections of buses and battery electric vehicles with a cafe, shop and kids kabin activity area, plus a miniature railway that operates on event days and certain days during school holidays
Visit to The Great British Car Journey, Ambergate, Derbyshire
https://greatbritishcarjourney.com/ Features over 130 Classic cars, and takes you through the golden ages of British car design and manufacturing, starting with the Austin Seven, through to the Morris Minor, classic Mini, Ford Escort and everything in between.
On Saturday 15th March we pointed our trusty 940 “Big Olive” at the Cat and Fiddle Pass, and journeyed over to the lumpy end of Derbyshire and the beautiful Derwent Valley. Our overnight stay was at the “Family Tree” B&B in the oddly-named village of Whatstandwell, birthplace of renowned yachtswoman Dame Ellen MacArthur. If you would like to try this trip for yourselves we can recommend this establishment, which is stylish, comfortable, and serves a truly outstanding breakfast. They are on booking.com and the postcode is DE4 5HG. They are a tea rooms with a separate B&B attached in a row of refurbished cottages, so closed in the evenings, but they recommended us to the picturesque little “Boat Inn” in the nearby village of Cromford, (postcode DE4 3QF) which serves hearty portions of excellent food, and which we can again thoroughly recommend. Reservations are advisable on weekends Tel. 01629 258083
All this was to rendezvous with fellow Volvo Enthusiasts Club members on Sunday morning, because club stalwarts Alan and Pat Orgill had organised a trip to the acclaimed “Great British Car Journey”, a car museum with a difference. This collection is not concerned with rows of gleaming, expensive exotica, but instead the bulk of the exhibits are mint examples of the cars driven by ordinary people, and with which they shared life’s milestones.
By my count, seven Volvos made the trip, including Pat and Alan’s multi-award winning 480, and their 240 “Frodo”, Malcolm’s lovely Amazon, Kevin in his “Saint” P1800, a very clean 740 estate, a V70 and a certain vivid green BMW. I think there were around a dozen of us in all, but forgive me if I have missed anyone out as it was a moving target and I had woken at 5am…
Housed in a former wire works on the bank of the River Derwent (and painted an unmissable Union Jack Blue) the site covers 4 acres, and houses over 130 exhibits. The brainchild of Richard Usher, founder of Auto Windscreens and his associates, it took 4 years to amass all the vehicles, beginning with a single 1989 Austin Maestro which Richard was offered in excellent condition and almost turned down. Realising that these once common cars were now virtually extinct led Richard to buy the car, and gave rise to the concept of a museum of motoring centred on the cars driven by ordinary people.
The second unique selling point is that the museum is interactive, and (for a fee) you can try cars from a fleet of 30, ranging from an Austin 7 to a Rolls Royce Silver Spirit on the museum’s own test track, with guidance from an instructor. At c£50 dependant on choice, this is not cheap, but when one considers what it must cost to insure and maintain historic vehicles for this purpose, it is probably a bargain.
Inside the museum the cars are arranged by decade, starting in the 1920s, and the vast space is festooned with period advertising banners. A taped commentary activated by scanning QR codes on the exhibits is available to expand on individual vehicles if desired, but I was comfortable just browsing. There are couple of more expensive vehicles, such as a Bristol 401 and an early E-Type, but then they were part of the streetscape too.
The great strength of the museum in my view is that literally everywhere you look evokes a memory. A car your dad, uncle, aunty or boss had or a car you owned, courted in, or went on holiday in. So many of the exhibits evoke powerful (and sometimes forgotten) memories, that it is like working through your record collection, where each song takes you back to a specific place and time. If you do not find yourself wandering here lost in your own memories, I will be very surprised.
The museum also has a cafeteria “The Filling Station”, excellent visitor facilities including a large car park, and has already won many awards. Highly recommended.
The Great British Car Journey is at Derwent Works, Ambergate, Derbyshire DE56 2HE, just off the A6 and their website is at www.greatbritishcarjourney.com or telephone 01773 317243. If making a longer stay, the National Tramway Museum at Crich is also close by.

Practical Classics Show & Restoration Show with Discovery March 2022
Practical Classics Car & Restoration Show with Discovery 2022 - What a fantastic Show!
After nearly 3 years absence, the Practical Classics Car & Restoration was back at the NEC over 18th to 20th March, 2022.
Our plans for the Show had started several month previous, when we decided the theme of our display would be 4 fold – A celebration of 60 Years of Roger Moore in TV’s The Saint, 60 years of the Volvo P1800 being launched in RHD in the UK, 30 Years of the FH16 – Volvo’s then most powerful Truck and finally 95 year of Volvo, the first car ‘Jakob’, an OV-4 coming off the production line on 14th April 1927.
In order that we might celebrate the above the organisers had offered us one of the largest stand spaces in the show, a staggering 20M x 9.5M = 190 Sq M. This I think shows just how well the Volvo Enthusiasts Club, Established in 1989, is regarded by them and also Practical Classics the Headline Sponsor. We have after all, have attended every Practical Classic Restoration Show at the NEC and were from the beginning one of their chosen ‘Premier Clubs’ for display.

National Gathering held on Sunday 19th September, 2021 in Shropshire
This was our Club’s National Gathering, which due to Covid restrictions moved to September rather than our usual June date, so that we were able to provide a safe environment for all our Members.
Our National Event this year was held at the great venue of Apley Farm Shop Our National Event this year was held at the great venue of Apley Farm Shop, which is very much more than its name implies, with a fine selection of shop units in the old farm barn buildings, including Del with fine local foods, a Butchers, Plant Shop, Gifts and a lovely cafe/restaurant.
Apley Farm Shop for those who were unable to make the day can be found near the village of Norton and is situated off the A442 between Bridgnorth and Telford in Shropshire.
Postcode TF11 9EF
Event attendance was fantastic, particularly considering this was our first chance to meet for over two years and with some Members still very worried about effects of Covid and mixing with others. Despite this we had a great attendance of Classic Volvos and Club Members in other vehicles, which included two Classic Triumph Cars.
As is our usual event practice, Club Members received complimentary Refreshments, of a Drink and piece of lovely Home Made Cake, which was well received judging by the many compliments received both on the day and on social media.
Judging of the attending Volvo’s was as usual undertaken by Club Members, with additional awards being judged by a team of the Club’s Co-ordinators – See the results for award winners.
Our Congratulations to all the Award Winners. Many thanks to all those Members who came along and supported this our first National Gathering for over 2 years and particular thanks to those Members who arrived early and helped with setting up the field, erecting the Club Event Shelter and also those who helped at the end of the day.
