Alvis Car Care and Maintenance course: Tuesday 2nd October and Wednesday 3rd October 2018

The Club have managed to secure the services of the Heritage Skills Academy at Bicester Heritage to run a two day course, in their fully equipped workshop, specifically aimed at the care and maintenance of post war cars.  The course is designed for owners who wish to use their cars more frequently but perhaps do not have the knowledge or experience they would like when delving under the bonnet! Part of the course will be aimed at strategies to fix the small problems and ‘get you home’ rather than having to wait for recovery.

The course will be limited to 12 people. The cost for the two day’s training is £250 per person.  Hotel accommodation has been reserved for both the Monday and Tuesday nights (Tuesday morning will start sharp) and may be booked at a rate of £112.50 per person per night B&B. All bookings are on a first come first served basis.

Please email Paul Chasney at the Club enquiry desk ( or telephone 07808 056100 to make a booking or for more details.
