From beginning of 2018 I'll be taking on editing the Veteran Vespa Club Journal - the club's magazine for VVC members which is published four times a year..

I've been a VVC member since 2006 and have occasionally contributed to the quarterly Journal - the first page of my London World Vespa Days report shown above, with photos I've taken at various events over the last eleven years shown below...

I'll be looking to place more emphasis on quality photography for the Journal; from those contributors sending in images, as well as including a few of my own shots from time to time.

I would also like to open the Journal up and include more articles and European/US/Far East rally reports from the club's worldwide members, rather than just those resident in the UK. 

I would also say I am keen to extend this to non-VVC members - so if you have an interesting feature or article in mind for the Journal concerning classic geared vespas, or nicely composed quality images (ideally no smaller than 1MB), then please get in touch and email me at  The Veteran Vespa Club or I can't offer any financial incentive for contributions to the Journal I'm afraid but hopefully the incentive of having your article and/or photographs in print may be encouragement enough. On a personal level, I would like to read a good looking, interesting, relevant and current magazine about classic vespas, regardless of whether contributions are from VVC members or non-members..

Having said that, only £15.00 for individual VVC membership gives you access to: usually 3 club events per year, quarterly published Journal, discounts with agreed dealers and insurance, automatic membership of the British Motorcycle Federation, providing you with benefits available to members of an affiliated club, access to VVC Members Facebook page, access to members section of VVC website, providing historical and technical information on classic, vintage vespas and not to mention fellowship with others who share a common interest in classic vespas..

... and whether you reside in Osaka, Cape Town, St Petersburg, Jakarta, Munich, Nice, Taiwan, Vancouver, San Diego, Sao Paulo, Perth, or wherever else in the world, you can still sign up as a member, receive your four VVC Journal copies each year as well as all the online benefits described above.
