Bedford Enthusiasts Club Members

In these difficult times your committee would like to pass on to all our members our sincerest wishes for your wellbeing.
We would all like to be out on the road runs and at shows with our Bedfords but we must do the right thing and keep staying at home to hasten the return to some form of normality.
If you are fortunate enough to have your Bedfords at home to be able to work on, this is the ideal opportunity to carry out those jobs which we all put off during the season.
Perhaps you are in the middle of a restoration or a major refurbishment. Whatever you are doing we would like to hear about it.
The Bedford Legend has room for your stories from the lockdown so if you have an account of your time filling activities please let us know and we will try to publish some of them on the website or
in the Legend.
In the meantime KEEP SAFE and we look forward to better times
Best Wishes
From the Bedford Enthusiasts Committee.

 

Warning

There is a fake SORN scam around, make sure that if you are sorning you only use the official website.
