Committee - 2020-21

I’ve been a member of the Healey club for over 25 years. Initially down South where I bought my first scrap metal (car) where it was duly restored. On retirement, I re-located to Cheshire where the car had to be restored again! Regularly attend local, national and international events including my local Noggin & Natter (Knutsford).
Vice Chairman, Membership Liason & Comms
Having been a lifelong lover of the British sports car and a member of the AH Club for over 10 years, I have recently completed the rebuild of my 59 Frogeye in the relative comfort of a heated double garage and the joy of the Moss catalogue. After 5 years the car is back on the road and looking forward to travelling further afield with the Frog and the Club.
I’m the owner of a Healey 3000 Mk2, which was bought as a runner, back in 2008, which is when I first joined the Healey Club, much work undertaken since! I also own a couple of Lotus‘s and a 1960‘s Cooper S, so not entirely a Healey fanatic.
I have owned classic cars for over 40 years and ten years ago I joined the Austin Healey Club following a visit to the club stand at Tatton Park. Following that visit I was helped considerably by club members to source and acquire a 3000 MKIII (BJ8). The car underwent restoration and has been used regularly since on Club events, both at home and abroad, all of which I have enjoyed immensely.
NEC Director & Calendar and Events
I bought my first Healey (BJ7) in 1992 and spent a few years on its restoration. Since completion, I have attended many enjoyable events both in the UK and overseas. I recently bought a 100 which needs very little doing to it and am also in the process of creating a Silverstone from a Tickford, which I hope to complete this year.
I’m the custodian of a frogeye, which I’ve had for over a decade. Whilst I can do a bit of electrics, I’m now slowly learning some mechanics. Unfortunately, I’m not especially fond of getting my hands dirty. I work in IT and currently run the Northern Centre website.
General Member
Joined AHC in 1995 after attending a Classic Car Show with some AHC members. Bought my car for my son and myself to bond in. When he went to University I needed another navigator enter Caroline and it’s been the two of us ever since. If you know me you know Caroline!!
North Wales Sub-Centre
John and Jill Bowman have been members of the club for almost along as the club have been going and together run a very active sub-centre in the North Wales region.
Scottish Sub-Centre
I joined the AHC in 1995, to take part in shows and outings with Scottish AHC members. I bought my first Healey in 1984, a Frogeye, which took me 2 full years to completely rebuild. In 1998 I organised the first Chasin' the Haggis Tour, stepping down in 2015 to hand over to a new team and title, Air an Rathad. In 2010 I bought a one owner 1963 BJ7, which had been in storage in bits since 1968. It took 3 years to rebuild, and was ready in time for the 4th European Meeting, May 2013.
Northumbria Sub-Centre
John has been a member of the club for over 20 years and looks after the Northumbria region.

Yorkshire Sub-Centre
In the late 60's and 70's I had 100/6 and BJ7. Current Healey is a Phase1 BJ8, a press car and featured in reports in 1964 motoring magazines and the archives at The British Motor Museum at Gaydon. It is a stalled project at present as my abilities are struggling to match my ambition to do most of the restoration work myself.

Committee meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each second month.
