CVPG was formed in 1991 and has continued to grow to the club we have today with over 200 members. We mainly cover Beds, Bucks and Herts but welcome members from everywhere and have several who do live outside this area.
We welcome a wide range of vehicles – basically anything with wheels! You don’t need to own a classic vehicle to be a member though, an interest in vehicles is all you need. Our current aim is to encourage younger members and we welcome owners of future classics too.
We have an active social scene too. During the winter we have monthly meets in Dunstablians Rugby Club near Houghton Regis, Beds, with interesting speakers and demonstrations on a number of subjects. We hold a yearly auction which is always a fun and lively event and also a Christmas Party with buffet supper, activities and entertainment. Our AGM in February is traditionally our bangers and mash night.
During the summer months, we meet at various pubs, have an annual BBQ and organise trips out to various interesting places. Our pub meetings are always popular and a great opportunity for members to meet and show their vehicles informally.
Members also receive 4 magazines a year covering a wide range of transport related articles, stories and information.
Membership is £10 per annum and covers all the family at the same address.
I mustn’t forget to mention our annual Luton Festival of Transport event at Stockwood Park. This has grown steadily over the years and now regularly attracts almost 1500 vehicles, the largest show of its type in the area. In 2016 we will be celebrating our 25th year so will be relying on all members to take part and make sure it a great one!
