2016 VCCR REUNION


The 14th VCCR Reunion was held at the Ardencote Manor Hotel, near Warwick on 21st & 22nd of October 2016. A relaxed evening on the Friday ensued, some, having booked tables in the restaurant, enjoying an excellent 3-course meal. Others enjoyed much of the same menu ordered from the bar. Positive comments all round as to the quality of the fare! The Saturday morning gave us an excellent informal breakfast on reserved tables before some 15 of us set out to the British Motor Museum at Gaydon which was enjoyed by all who attended. The Jaguar collection display was not to be missed! - There was all from SS to XJR!


Saturday evening saw 36 members attend the Arden Suite with private bar where an excellent 3-course gala meal was served. With no guest speaker this year, Bob Hine, as acting PMC, gave a Reunion Address to remember those no longer with us and advise of the whereabouts of others unable to join us. All agreed the hotel had “done us proud” with excellent friendly service, immaculate rooms and superb facilities. Not a negative comment was heard all weekend!
