Club Events

Date Event
JanTue 1
STOP PRESS: The organisers tell us the green is too wet to use so parking will be very limited for both classics and visitors. You may still be able to park on the road or at the Royal Oak but there won't be a lot of room.

Start 2013 in style with a fabulous selection of classic cars, good company and perhaps a drink to stave off the chill. Meet on the road opposite The Royal Oak in Barrington and don't forget your hat and scarf! See some pictures from last year

Manea Gala
Every year Manea holds an Annual Gala and the whole village joins in - from the Scouts with their BBQ stall, to the local community groups on their elaborately decorated floats to the WI manning the cakes and refreshments in the pavilion. There is always a good car display of upwards of 60 cars, including some from the North Cambs / Wisbech area you might not normally come across. The cars are organised by club members Michael and Yvonne Philpott and the CDCCC will again be taking the club stand. Please contact Michael on 01354 680615 if you wish to attend and don't forget to mention the club. Entrance is free for classic cars and it's a fun family day out - plus there's always the nearby "Ouse Washes" RSPB reserve too.
