Chairman’s Report They say that every cloud has a silver lining – and boy is it true for the plantings at our branch grounds! We couldn't have had more perfect conditions for the trees and shrubs that our hard working Ground Restoration team planted over the last few months. A loyal group of members answered the call to come to working bees and have joined the team spending endless back breaking hours picking up stones and boulders. The Maintenance team continue to work tirelessly in the background too, to ensure that our grounds are kept tidy and presentable. Well done to you all. Did you know that in the branch grounds is a cabin that is available to hire? This has been refurbished with new mattresses (and covers) new curtains (thank you Ann) and the paint refreshed. There are two double bunks, electric jug etc and is available at the reasonable cost of $20 per night for one, plus $10 per extra person (i.e. $30 for two people.) Contact Claire and Kevin Campion (telephone 312 7255) for bookings. I hope you are all sorting out your teams for the Quiz Night. (See page 15 for further information.) If you prefer, just come along and join a team - you will be assured of an enjoyable evening. For just $5 per person, you will enjoy exercising your “little grey cells”, savour a delicious supper and you never know, you may be able to take home one of the prizes up for grabs. Also there is a forward notice on page 2 of our Dance on Saturday 17th June. An enjoyable night is guaranteed and something to look forward to. Regretfully, our Hub Editor (Cindy Hey) has notified the branch committee (and members through a notice in the Hub) that she will be finishing before the end of the year. We are very grateful for the time she has given us, faithfully “turning out” our newsletter, month by month. (Cindy is working alongside someone who may be interested in taking on this important role – as they say, watch this space!)


On page 33 you will find a nomination form for committee positions to be elected at our coming Annual General Meeting on Sunday 25 June. Committee member, Paul Seaton and I will not be seeking re election and a couple of other committee members have indicated that they would like to stand down. Please give serious thought to accepting nomination or putting another member’s name forward. It is a tangible way to give something back to the branch and it is essential for the smooth running of the branch that these positions are filled. (Of course all the branch committee positions are elected annually and all current members must seek nomination for the coming year.) Happy winter motoring. Leigh

SECRETARY’S REPORT No Secretary’s report this month.

CONDOLENCES Our deepest sympathy is extended to the families of Ron Kay and Bob Bruce Both 50 year plus members. Ron passed away in February. 8

Club Captain’s Report Besides the general calendar of events, there is a lot going on besides Rallies and Noggin Nights. There are a lot of other activities that make the Canterbury Branch the success it is. The parts department guys put in huge, uncountable hours supporting your hobby. The financial return helps to run the club and helps keep our subs down. The comradeship among the group makes joining them worth a thought. Maintenance of our club assets is managed by a small group of (not so young) dedicated members who spend many unseen hours keeping your grounds and buildings well presented. You could enjoy being part of this team. Swap Meet is another behind the scene team that spends much time making this event our most successful fundraiser. Join in and support your club by offering your help. This is a few of the activities where your expertise can be utilised for your enjoyment while helping support the organisation. The Motorcycle Noggins and Commercial Noggins are open to all members to attend. Those groups are enthusiastic in their hobbies and have some very interesting evenings. What I am saying is, get involved and enjoy what the VCC has to offer.

Happy motoring Greg




Motorcycle Report

Past Events 25th March – Fish and Chip Run – very wet day which put people off, only two bikes fronted up, so went on a garage raid to a member’s place. 12th April – Noggin, about 25 enjoyed a very good garage raid where we were treated to a magnificent display of vehicles and a well equipped workshop. Coming Events 29th April – Scooter Run, including veteran and vintage bikes. 29th April – Fish and Chip Run. Yes, on the same day as the Scooter Run, so will probably be a run to Darfield so that the Fish and Chip Run people meet up with the Scooter Run at lunch time. 10th May – Motorcycle Noggin. Being held at Smash Palace, lower High Street, from 7.30 pm. 14th May – Working Bee at Motorcycle Corner, Cutler Park. The Motor Cycle Section has been asked to, in addition to looking after the usual grounds around Social Corner, mind the newly formed garden area to the North West of the toilets. The committee on your behalf has said “Yes” to the request. Working Bee to place mulch and pea straw around the grounds in, near, and around the Social Corner. There are a large number of new trees etc. planted in the vicinity and we want to look after them, so please show your support by coming along. 9.30 am start. 27th May – Fish & Chip Run. Might be a good one to attend, as one of our members MAY have found a place in the Prebbleton area which MIGHT be suitable for a F&C Run garage raid! More details at the usual start at PMH, 10.30 am start. 28th May – Motorcycle Rough Run. Usual format, from 9.30 am onwards. 14th June – Advance warning, the Motorcycle Section AGM being held. Think of whom YOU would like as your committee representatives, or perhaps have YOU thought of doing your bit for the section?


There are many VCC events and runs that the Branch organises that are perceived to be for cars only, but motorcycles are most welcome and are encouraged to enter. Events including the Annual Rally, Veteran, Vintage and P Group Rallies all have trophies that are available for motorcycling entrants, but year after year are simply “not awarded” through lack of motorcycle entrants. It is recognised that quite a few motorcyclists do have club eligible cars with which they enter these “VCC Branch” rallies but please consider entering on your motorcycle instead once in a while.

We arrived at the Carpark at the Belfast Hotel at 9:45am and it was raining. Only 20 hardy souls turned up so we decided the trip was off and adjourned to The Barn. Before long we had a blazing fire to keep us comfortable and Surprise! Surprise! The Swords arrived with scones and coffee which we really appreciated. Thank you! A friend, Bill Thomas, with his piano accordian, came too and he entertained us with good music, old favourites and anecdotes of his life as a musician. Everyone enjoyed this and we had plenty of applause.

We observed a minutes silence in remembrance of Bryan McSaveney, a very loyal member of our group.

Lorraine Andrews donated a lovely Easter Bunny and chocolate eggs for the usual raffle. All in all it turned out to be a much better day than we expected given the weather.

REAR WHEEL BRAKE REPORT – 5 March 2017 As I write this report the rain outside reminds us that autumn is here, yet earlier this month we were treated to a warm summer’s day for this year’s Rear Wheel Brake Rally. This year’s start venue was at Christchurch’s only example of brick terrace housing. Built by Frank Hitchings who worked as a bricklayer and chimney sweep after he emigrated from Blackheath, London. In 1876, he built a small brick house on this Durham Street property and, as his family grew, he built another larger home next door. After successfully renting out the first house, he then built two more homes in the gap between. He named the buildings ‘Blackheath Place’. As his sons grew up Frank taught them the brick laying trade, and together they expanded Blackheath until ten houses were built. Blackheath remained in the family until 1983 when it sold and developed as a number of commercial suites. Since then another block has been built behind the original with the new buildings in the style of the original tenant houses. After the usual time to chat and say hello to other entrants, the cars headed away on three different routes. This year, we let the long route away first and this seemed to work well, getting everyone into lunch in good time. From Sydenham, we all headed through Birmingham Drive and over the new bridge connecting it to Wigram Road, Through Rolleston and Sandy Knolls before splitting into three routes. The first and shortest was fully sealed and we travelled on rural roads through Greendale towards Coalgate. The other two routes traversed the now, traditional dirt road sections via Coaltrack Road and for the longest route the rolling country of Malvern Hills before both heading through Coalgate. Our luck continued with no need to use our wet weather venue in Coalgate, so all could head for a picnic lunch at Waireka Homestead. The grounds of this 1870 home include huge lawns and shady areas which were perfect to picnic away from the sun. Most even managed to get their cars under some shade. Waireka lies just below Homebush, between the Hawkins and the Selwyn Rivers, and was first taken up as a run in 1852 by William Macdonald who ran sheep on the 8,000 acres.


In 1854, they moved to South Canterbury and sold the property to George Ross. He named the property Waireka and had 2,000 sheep by 1858. When Ross became the first Clerk of the Canterbury Provincial Council, he left Charles Harper, son of the first Bishop of Christchurch, to manage the station. Ross sold Waireka around 1862, and it was sold again in 1867 to the Rt. Honourable Joseph Chamberlain’s two brothers who were absentee owners, living in England. Reginald Wade managed the property for the Chamberlains, and it was during this time that the present house was built. After Wade left, the Chamberlains let the station to various tenants, then had a manager working the station again from 1882 to 1886. By then, it carried about 5000 sheep. They then leased it again, including a period being leased to Cresswell, the Hororata butcher. In 1901, William Broughton went to England and bought the land from the Chamberlains and ran the property until the late 1920's when he subdivided it and transferred it to his sons. Broughton family members farmed on the property for 100 years. The present owners purchased the homestead about three years ago. The two storey weatherboard homestead has seven working fireplaces, servant bells in the hallway, and a basement wine cellar and is a perfect spot to bring up their young family. The eldest three boys were more than happy to accept a ride in one of the cars, and the owners also gave a short talk on the history of the property. After a relaxing lunch the afternoon run offered a single route back through Darfield and Halketts Road to Church Corner for the evening meal. The area was busy so car parking was at a premium but we got everyone in and settled for an excellent meal to finish the day. This was the first time I had seen Colin Hey with his 1912 Wolseley, and Alister and Denise McKenzie with their 1911 Ford Model T, though they had attended before in their more modern 1926 T. Alistair and Nola Day brought their 1926 Dodge Tourer up from South Canterbury again, and Norm Willis and Cristina from Wellington also took part in their 1925 Fiat 501C. As organisers, we appreciate the continued support of this event by members as we aim to promote the use of our earlier cars and motorcycles.


Next year will celebrate running this event for twenty years. There are many eligible cars and motorcycles in the club that we would like to see out to celebrate with us. The day is non-competitive with clear instructions and plenty of time to tell a few stories. Why not note the date down now and aim to join us next year on the 4th March 2018. Peter Barnett

Ashburton Swap Meet South Canterbury PV/PW/P60/P80 Rally South Canterbury All British Day South Canterbury Restoration Rally

North Canterbury Classic Tour Starting at the Woodland’s Cafe in Leithfield, this event run for the 15th time, attracted 212 classics, on Sunday 19th March. The route took the vehicles through Broomfield, Weka Pass, Waikari, Scargill, Greta Valley, Cheviot, then the Leader East Road to Waiau. The primary school grounds was the venue for lunch and relaxing in the sun. The school PTA sold lunches by the dozens, while a jazz band played tunes from the 1950’s to the 1970’s, all under the shade of oak trees in front of the school rooms and play area. The tour raised $3,030 towards the replacement of the earthquake wrecked school/ community swimming pool, while a further $1,338 was raised by the PTA. We wish to thank all those who helped make this a very successful event. See you all next year? Photos on North Canterbury Classic Tour Facebook page. Trevor & Lorraine Stanley-Joblin I do not receive a lot of information on events being run by other branches or other organisations. If you are aware of an event or rally that would be of interest to other members please let me know or forward the information by email so that it can be included on this page.
