Volkswagen fans set up Welwyn Garden City club

A GROUP of campervan enthusiasts whose motto is “home is where you park it” has pitched up with a new club.

The VW fans from Welwyn Garden City have set up a new club for owners and drivers.

Co-founders Peter Monk and Darren Knight decided to form the local club after travelling to other VW clubs around the south-east.

The first meeting took place on November 10 at The Stanborough Beefeater, in Stanborough Road, WGC, and more than 20 vehicles and 30 people turned up to the inaugural motorcade.

The vehicles included a split campervan, bay window vans, Polo, Golf, Beetle and even a VW Trike.

Peter said: “It’s a great club to come and meet and socialise with other owners and see what they have, we are very grateful to The Stanborough Beefeater for allowing us to use their car park and restaurant.”

Darren added: “This club is for the community and anybody with an interest is more than welcome to come along.”

The next meeting will take place at the same venue on Wednesday, December 8 from 7pm.
