The Hammond collection microcar weekend 2018

Our now annual event over the last weekend in July is on! Sunday 29 July 2018 is the one day of the year when The Hammond Collection of Micro Cars will be open to the public to view. It is a great day out as we have visiting micro cars, other classic vehicles, food & festivities.
If you would like to visit our private collection other than on our open day, then please contact us & will endeavour to arrange something but please understand that this must be by appointment only. We are always delighted to show groups of interested people & clubs around at a mutually convenient times. We do have adequate parking for groups.

Dear All
The Hammond Collection weekend event looks like being the best yet. People are booked into the camp site with their cars from all over the country. The AC Petite register will be gathering all the known AC's together. A thing that has never been done before. There will be a very interesting road run on the Saturday, followed by an evening of entertainment and good food. The Static day on the Sunday will have a motoring skills event, along with many displays, good cars and good food. Bring along your own chairs and just sit and chat. Not forgetting a few competitions, and the star of the weekend, the Hammond Collection itself.

If you want to camp, you must contact Leslie Cook to reserve a pitch.

The Hammond Family look forward to seeing you all.

Small correction.
Not all the known AC Petites will be there.
Sorry to say that myself and mine are an ocean and continent away here in L.A.
Would absolutely attend if we were not.
Have fun and please take lots of pics and videos to post for your more geographically challenged enthusiasts.

Yes please make contact AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  We have already had to negoiate with our insurers for a few more spaces and now there really is no more room for manoeuvre and these are rapidly being taken.  We would hate to have to say 'no' to any of our friends  and  send them to another camp site nearby .  So please ring 01580 835850 or me and I will let Lesley know when she gets home from work.  I am very much looking forward to seeing many old friends again, bring the sunshine with you.Jean

Dear All

We have just heard that the highways agency have decided to close the M20 between junction 4 and 6 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and may extend into Monday. This is the section from Leybourn to Aylesford. This will mean all the traffic will be diverted onto the A20 road during this period, which means that the journey will take a lot longer for that section.

If you were planning to use the M20 or A20 to attend the Open Day events at School House Farm you have several alternative options:

Take the A22 down past Sevenoaks and Tonbridge to Lamberhurst and turn left and go through Goudhurst (not ideal for large vehicles) to  the roundabout before Sissinghurst, and then turn left and approach Staplehurst on the A229 from the south.

Another option is to come off the A20 at Wrotham Heath and follow Seven Mile Lane to Mereworth and take the A26 into Maidstone, and then the A229 south out of Maidstone for Staplehurst.

I hope this helps you get to the event safely.
