A dedicated club of classic car enthusiasts is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. MEMBERS of the Gwent Classic Car Club (GCCC) have met every month for the past four decades to partake in events together and discuss their shared interests.

Chairman Brian Campbell, 67, has been in the club for nearly 18 years, for 10 of which he has been the chairman.

“What’s made the club last for 40 years is a solid base of membership in the area,” said Mr Campbell.

WELCOME TO OUR SITE Ever since the invention of the first motor car, the hearts and imaginations of men, women and children all over the world have been touched by these fantastic creations.

Meeting once or twice a month over the next four decades, the membership has fluctuated, from dwindling into single figures to hosting as many as 50 at one time.

“We have about 32 members currently, ranging from people in their 20s to people in their 80s,” said Mr Campbell.

“As our membership grew, the facilities became too small and we’d have to move on and find another pub to meet in,” explained Mr Danter.
