This year, the 33rd 2CVGB National Meeting will be held at Cokethorpe School in Witney near Oxford, over the August Bank Holiday Weekend, 25th - 29th August. Our theme is 'Alice in Wonderland', drawing on Oxford's literary heritage.....
Some news to make you grin like the Cheshire Cat...
We are pleased to announce that in 2CV-land prices for the National are staying the same (for the third year running!). This is an exciting bit of information since, with the recent rise in VAT, you are actually getting a better deal on last year’s price. Are you grinning yet?
