At last week’s meeting of the Southampton and New Forest group of the Austin A30/A35 Owners, the guest speaker was Chris Marchant from Vintage Tyres of Beaulieu.

He explained that Vintage can provide almost any tyre for any car.

The club meets on the second Thursday of each month at the Empress of Blandings pub, near Cadnam, from 7.30pm.

The next meeting will be on June 12 when the speaker will be Sarah Marsden giving a talk on Old Southampton.
