Don’t Forget Yorkshire Day!
Originally with a cut-off booking date of the 1st of July, this popular annual Members-Only event, still has some remaining spaces if you would like to book.
The run commences from the Bell Mill Garden Centre at Driffield, at 6pm, with members assembling at 5pm for a tea or coffee – included with the entry fee. Snacks are also available for purchase.
At our final destination, we can enjoy a chat and a drink, and of course the very best Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding Meal (vegetarian alternative available) – with some light live music entertainment too!
Members Only. Vehicles must be at least 20 years old. £14 per meal/person.
Austin 7 Required for Channel-4 T.V. Filming
We have received the following enquiry..
My name is Winifred, I am a Researcher at the television production company Tern TV. We are making the second series of Great British Car Journeys for Channel 4. Following the success of their first adventures along some of the country’s most iconic roads, we re-join one of the nation’s most loved television double acts – Peter Davison and Christopher Timothy – as they jump back behind the wheel of their trusty Morgan 4/4 and set out in search of more Great British Car Journeys. With a friendship forged during 90 episodes of beloved television series All Creatures Great and Small, the much loved actors are taking to the road in 4 brand new episodes. Here is a link to the first series; https://www.channel4.com/programmes/great-british-car-journeys
One of the routes we are taking is through North Yorkshire to give a nod to All Creatures Great and Small. We are wanting to recreate the title sequence and opening scene with Peter and Christopher. In the series, Christopher’s characters car is an Austin 7 (exactly like the car pictured below) and the car in the title sequence is an Austin 12/4 (again below). I have been searching for any private owners of these vehicles who wouldn’t mind us using them to recreate these scenes. We would be looking for Peter and Christopher to drive the vehicles a short distance. The locations of these filming will be Langthwaite and Leyburn in North Yorkshire.
I wondered if you know of any owners of these vehicles, it’s not important if the colour isn’t exactly like the original Austin’s used. We are looking at potentially filming this episode from the week commencing 22nd July.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can be contacted directly on 0141 227 3947.
Membership Card and Vehicle ID Discs
The main purpose for these cards and discs, are for security identification, and to assist in event entry, specifically when a member has forgotten to bring with them to an event, a stamped event entry card, or (issued online) entry pass. This is to safeguard against non-members (or those with expired membership) trying to access events under false pretences – as have happened on previous occasions.
Those members currently without a membership card and disc(s), should receive them in the forth-coming edition of our magazine. Members who have recently joined, will receive them directly in a separate post. Many members whom renewed by post, appeared to have not read the renewal form instruction regarding sending a stamped addressed envelope – hence the delay in many cases.
But even without either (and we will get some members who will forget to have either with them at an event) so long as you remember your membership number (found on your magazine address label) and you are pre-booked into an event, then there shouldn’t be any problem. And better still, with a stamped entry card, or an online issued entry pass – event entry should not present any problems. We also have a list of all pre-booked entrants at each of our events.
- Please remember, that these cards and discs are issued just once – for the duration of your membership, and not replaced annually. If you lose one, please let us know immediately, so that we can replace it, and cancel the old one on our system.
- The numbers on the card and discs, are unique, and linked to your membership number – but do not contain your membership number – which can be found on your magazines address label.
- It is advisable, to write your membership number on the membership card signature strip on the reverse – for reference – should you not remember it.
Are you using your correct Membership Number?
A few members are booking into events with the incorrect membership number – which is causing us a lot of problems, and a lot of extra (unpaid) work. Your membership number is displayed at the top-right of your magazines address label. It is NOT the number on the vehicle discs or membership cards. In some cases people are using a number close to their actual number, but with an incorrect digit. If uncertain, then please check your magazine label, or use our online search facility here:

Members £5 Deficit on Standing Order Payments
There are still a number of members, whom may have updated their Standing Order amount with their bank, from £20 to £25, but not before their £20 payment was made, and therefore need to make the additional £5 payment – otherwise their membership will be marked as ‘Associate’, meaning vehicles can not be booked into events. Full details of payment options, including an online payment option, can be found from here.
Online Events Booking for Members
If you have already booked into events, and would like to book into additional ones, you can now do so online from here. Also, if you are a relatively new member, and have not got an event application form, you can download one from here, and book events online from here.
You can also let us know if you are unable to make it to an event, by cancelling here.
Have your vehicle or article featured in our magazine!
You can now submit articles – such as an editorial feature about your vehicle – directly, and including photo(s), via this website. Simply go to this page.
Membership Cards and Vehicle Discs
It seems some members may have been a little confused whilst renewing their membership, and believing that Vehicle Discs and Membership Cards are replaced annually – as was the case with the old discs.
This is not the case, the ‘dateless’ new cards and discs are designed to be effective, as long as your membership is active, and they are registered on our system.
Please do not leave your discs in a vehicle you are selling. If your card or disc is lost, then please notify us immediately, so that we can replace, and then delete any lost ones from our database – so that they can no longer be used.
Incidentally, the discs are designed to be placed within a holder on the windscreen – the type that originally held a tax disc. These are still readily available as they are used for parking permits, etc. If you shop online, you can buy these from eBay, starting at 99p inc. delivery. If you are having trouble finding a holder – then please get in touch.
Your Standing Order Payments
We’ve received quite a few Standing Order payments, for those whom pay this way, at the old membership fee amount of £20. Whereas the Membership for 2019 (as proposed and agreed at the 2018 AGM) is still great value – but now at £25.
If you haven’t updated your Standing Order arrangement with your bank yet – which in many cases can be done online, or a visit to your bank – then please do so ASAP. If your payment has already gone through to us for the old amount of £20, then please could you post us a cheque for the outstanding balance of £5 – payable to EYTCC and post to: The Treasurer, EYTCC, PO Box 320, Beverley, HU17 0WA – and put your membership number on the back of your cheque. If you have not yet received your membership card and vehicle disc(s), please include a self-stamped addressed envelope – unless you have already done so with your renewal application form.
Online Membership Renewal
If you are looking to renew your existing EYTCC Membership, through our automated online PayPal payment system – from previously paying by another method – then please click here. You do not need to have a PayPal account, and can pay by card. Using this method, is not only easier for you, but reduces the work-load of our volunteer committee members. You can easily unsubscribe at any time from our website, or via PayPal directly.
If you have not yet received your membership card and vehicle disc(s), please send us a self-stamped addressed envelope – otherwise, these will be issued by return with your 2019 event applications, around March time.
