Hi All.

I hope you are well.

Firstly I would like to welcome the new members that have joined the section this month, all 13 of you, with locations are spread all over the region, Diss, Swaffham, Chatteris, Wisbech, Norwich, March, Ely, Dereham, Norwich, Ipswich, Peterborough and Cambridge! A record since I have been section secretary. Which is also why our events roam around the counties too!I hope we get to meet soon.

We had a great day at Dunwich with the Essex Section on the 8th May, 15 Alfa’s, a Mustang and a Fiat 500. The weather was bright but a bit blustery, and the wind had a little edge to it. A couple of images below, more on the section facebook page and the area section of the club site.

If you are coming to the Norfolk Drive on the 28th and haven’t already do let me know so I can let all concerned in the loop, I think we are at 17 cars so far so it should be good. and if you have said your coming but now cant let me know also!!

For those planning to come to Sizewell Vintage on the 26th June please let me know as well.

 Saturday 28th May, Norfolk Drive, Start time 10am, for a bacon bap and a cup of tea and a wander round the museum then depart at noon, However, for those wanting to spend more time at the zoo they can of course skip the bacon butty and museum and head off earlier via the Malcolm Tulip Road Book!  Bring your club membership card to claim the entry fee discount! Old Buckenham Airfield, Abbey Road, Old Buckenham, Norfolk, NR17 1PU destination Banham Zoo, Kenninghall Road, Banham, Norwich, NR16 2HE Please let me know if you are coming!!

COMING UP, spaces still available for all events.

Now I have been asked about Classics at Glemham and Helmingham Hall Festival of Classic and Sports Cars. If you are coming to any of these three events do let me know as I will need to know numbers in advance to issue wristbands, spaces etc

Sunday July 10th 9thGear 9am with the South Mids. Section, this year we are meeting up at the section favourite Kimbolton Country Fayre, Kimbolton Castle, Huntingdon, PE28 2AZ

Join us for the 2024 Country Fayre

Sunday 7th August Helmingham Hall Festival of Classic and Sports Cars 2022 Helmingham is simple, I have booked a stand for 30 cars, £10’s to me in advance to save a spot, more details will of course follow. PS I don’t get to keep the tenners they all go to Helmingham as I have to pay up front in advance! Please remember, as the event is open to the public, their public liability insurance restricts any car movements off the club stands between 10am and 4pm.

If you’ve not been before see the video below;

Sunday  4th September Classics at Glemham 2022, Glemham is a bit different this year, you have to pay via the website and then download and print your tickets to display on your windscreen coming in. There will be two entrances, your ticket colour (see later) will dictate the directions and entrances you use. There have already been some problems with incorrect ticket booking. Please remember, like Helmingham, as the event is open to the public, their public liability insurance restricts any car movements off the club stands between 10am and 4pm

Open the website and scroll down to the  2022 Show Tickets are now on sale and click the Get Tickets link, If you want to be on the CLUB STAND rather than in general classics parking use the top option Exhibitor Pass/ Car Club Member and book the top option for a car, driver and one passenger for £5.00 for additional passengers its £6 for each. It seems members of other car clubs have been getting it all wrong!! Fill in all the details and right at the bottom in Club Name, put Alfa Romeo Owners Club. If you get it right you will be emailed a RED ticket. I am sure you will be fine, its them others!!!

I hope to see you all soon.

Best wishes


Graham Simper, AROC East Anglia Section Secretary
