The Friendly Club


Covid-19 Pandemic - update as of September 2021

Club nights at the Hamworthy Social Club have now recommenced, and some shows and a Road Run have taken place. With two more runs planned for this year things are slowly getting back to normal - with Covid 19 possibly making a resurgence in the Autumn and Winter, there is always the posibility that activities will be curtailed again.



Based in the Bournemouth Area, the Three Counties Vintage & Classic Car Club primarily draws its members from the counties of Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset but is not limited to these counties with members from as far afield as Cornwall, Gloucesteshire, Worcestershire, Sussex, Surrey, and the West Midlands. We pride ourselves on our full calendar of events which caters not  only for the classic car enthusiasts but also for their partners.


Our main event of the year is the 3CVCCC Motorcade held in September at the scenic location of Highcliffe Castle, and we also organise the Vehicle Display at the Verwood Rustic Fayre on August Bank Holiday Monday, and the Classic Display at the New Milton Classic Car Show in July, all three events being free to enter. During the year we also organise eight Road Runs which end at a local hall where we serve food after the run.


The Phoenix is our club newsletter , a 20 page monthly colour magazine produced in A5 format.


Our principal monthly meeting is held at the Hamworthy Club, Magna Road, Canford Magna near Bournemouth on the third Monday of each month, we also hold a second meeting  on the 4th Wednesday of each month for members in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Somerset who don’t like the long trek into Bournemouth, and this meeting is held at the Redlynch Social Club, Woodfalls.


A varied balance of entertainment is provided at each club night, skittles, talks, quizzes, films, cookery competition etc., etc.
