Welcome to Craven Old Wheels Society
Affectionately known as C.O.W.S
COWS Club nights have re started.
Next one Jan 18th 2022
Our very own John Johnson has written an amazing book all about Bond cars
It covers the post-war austerity years from 1948 - 1955 when everything was in short supply and is the story of an attempt to solve the problem of affordable personal transport with a new type of vehicle - which lead ultimately to the development of the Mini.
It contains lots of interesting photos, and stories of 'pioneer motoring' as ordinary folk progressed from 2 wheels to three. A good read, in other words - and a suitable Christmas present for all transport buffs!
Attached is an image of the cover. The book is available from firstname.lastname@example.org or from The Grove Bookshop, Ilkley, priced £19.95.

HOT OFF THE PRESS - LITERALLY !!
What We've Been Up To
Craven Old Wheels Society is a car club which started in 1975. We are an “any make” club with emphasis on classic or unusual cars. Over the years we have been based in many locations around the Craven & Skipton Districts. All are welcome to join (even if you don’t have an old or classic car).
We will be based based at our new "Home" - Keighley Golf Club, in Utley. Our club meetings start at 8pm on the third Tuesday each month apart from December when there is no meeting. On our summer club meetings we hold a concourse night and also a local run. Other club meetings typically feature events like a slide show or a guest speaker.
The club organises runs each year, which visit regional attractions. Destinations, routes & mileages vary by event. We also organise a club stand at various classic car rallies in Lancashire & Yorkshire. We support local charity events by our members displaying their cars.
Please look on our "NEWS" page and also on "Events" pages which will give more details

COWS HISTORY EXHIBITION & SLIDE SHOW
COWS will have a display in the 'community case' at the Craven Museum (in Skipton Town Hall), featuring the history of COWS. This will run from Sat 02/10/21 to 29/12/21. Entry to the museum is free, but currently due to COVID, is only by advanced booking.
The planned slide show about the history of COWS on the evening of Thurs October 14th by Stuart James unfortunately has had to be cancelled due to Covid isolation. It is hoped that the show can be re scheduled possibly in November.
