Get to know your Area Secretary

Hello, my name is Chris Beal. I was born and have lived all my life on the Isle of Sheppey, being raised into a long line of farmers. I have been North Kent Area Secretary since January 2015, and have been IMPS member along with my family for about 15 years. We own several military vehicles between us, and enjoy the green machine hobby (or most of us do!) Our collection consist of GMC 352, Reo M35A2, Ferriet Mk2/4, a Sumb, Light weight Land Rover and a Jeep.
Luckily we have plenty of room on the farm to play.

Each year, in June, we hold a weekend Rally at Mustards Farm on the Isle of Sheppey. We have great fun. Friday we have a fish and chip run, Saturday includes a run out with the vehicle into Leysdown and we stop there for ice cream so that the public can have a look and donate to our chosen Charity. When we return to the farm hot tea and bread pudding is served. Saturday evening we have a barbecue with music, quizzes and plenty of fun (especially when the  alcohol starts to flow)  Sunday morning is a bit slow to start but things get going with a clay pigeon shoot, and for the more adventurous a microlite flight (weather permitting) The barbecue usually goes back on for lunch before everyone heads for home.

Most of us get together at the W&P revival show, also Combined Ops.

August meeting (weather permitting) is another Barbecue at Mustards Farm, enjoying the tales of the shows attended.
