Our club is a member of the Austin Seven Clubs Association and has a history going back over 40 years. It was founded by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, with membership open to anyone interested in or owning a Pre War Austin 7. Ownership of a vehicle is not necessary but is encouraged. Indeed membership is a distinct advantage in finding, evaluating and maintaining a vehicle. Fellow enthusiasts can help and advise on all aspects of care, restoration, and spares location. The club operates a new spares service.
Membership entitles you to a regular newsletter and also a quarterly issue of The Austin Seven Clubs Association magazine delivered to your door or via Email. Membership has many advantages. You can obtain by far the best value for insurance and we are approved by the DVLA to assist you via the V765 scheme to reunite your vehicle with its original index mark. We can also assist you to obtain an appropriate age related number.
Socially, we offer you many opportunities; there is an annual Club static rally at STANFORD HALL, in May. Additionally, enthusiastic club members organize various evening and weekend runs, e.g. 'The Cotswold' run in April, and October. We attend many local and some not so local events, we have travelled to France and Ireland, been 'JOGLE' participants on several occasions. We also have club stands at the National Restoration Show at the N.A.C. and at the National Classic motor show at the NEC in November each year. Many of our members participate in The London to Brighton A7 Run and the Dutch Pre War A7 Club at their rally near Amsterdam.
Our active regalia and spares teams maintain excellent stocks of Austin 7 related goods and spare parts and are always looking to introduce up to date items.
The Membership Fee is £24.00 and is renewed annually in September.
We run several events during the year and as a group we meet every last Wednesday of the month at "The OldSillhillians Rugby Club" Knowle which is adjacent to junction 5 of the M42. The meetings start at about 8pm
