Long-standing Committee Members

Members who have served for ten years or more

On this page, you will find a catalogue of those members who have served the committee for ten years or more in various capacities. These are the people who have made the club what it is and allowed us to access a wealth of knowledge as well as parts to keep our cars on the road. They also organise gatherings and rallies where we can meet with other members and share experiences and enjoy the cars we drive.

The sister page to this page celebrating those who have served for ten years or more is a list of all committee members who have served the club since its inception in 1974. Without whom the club would not be what it is today, enabling us all to keep our cars on the road and enjoying a social get together at rallies around the country. To see this page, click this link:

Honours Boards

Please note: The dates used to show length of service are those that appear in editions of Flower Power through the years, and therefore may straddle a year boundary by a few months.
