    Port-En-Bessin, France

    75th Anniversary of Operation Overlord. Planning is well underway for the IMPS 2019 tour of Normandy. Our campsite is already booked and several guided tours around the region have already been organised with experienced experts. We are linking up with local groups and the MVT to participate in the commemorations, including parades in Port en Bessin and Bayeux. We will be travelling to/from France via Portsmouth/Caen. The outward crossings will be either the overnight ferry leaving Sunday 2nd June or the daytime crossing on Monday 3rd June. The return crossings will be on Monday 10th June 2019. The duration of the trip will be 7 nights. We will be “occupying” a campsite which is located mid-way along the landing beaches. This makes it easy to visit all the sites relevant to Operation Overlord and the breakout. It provides a very high standard of facilities, with both camping and on site cabins available, it has an on-site swimming pool, excellent showers, a bar/cafe area and great access for the larger vehicles. We now need YOU to make a commitment to the tour by filling in the form. As in previous years we will ask for stage payments between now and the tour, this should help to spread your outgoings in proportion to the clubs outgoings, so it helps everybody! Please give as much information as you can at this stage, but we understand that there may be some changes necessary over the intervening time, you will be asked for more detailed information nearer the time. Please include your email address so we can save on postage and get the very latest information to you as it happens. If you change your email address please make sure you update us. We will not intentionally divulge this information to any third party. But we may send you links to museums etc. The tour is being arranged by IMPS so the entrant needs to be a current IMPS member, and still be a member at the time of the tour. Space is limited so entries will be strictly on a first come first served basis. If all the spaces are filled, you will be placed, in order, on a reserve list. Entry forms available by emailing Gareth Wear.

    Portsmouth

    Vehicles wanted:
    The 6 June 2019 will mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy and we at Portsmouth City Council are proud that Portsmouth will be at the heart of the UK's commemorations. We will be honouring the courageous actions of the Normandy veterans, World War II veterans and our allies with a series of events between Wednesday 5 June and Sunday 9 June 2019.
    As part of those commemorations I would like to ask on behalf of Portsmouth City Council if the Invicta Military Vehicle Preservation Society and its members would be interested in getting involved by displaying some of its members' period vehicles on Southsea Common over Friday 7 June through to Sunday 9 June for public view.  We are keen for them to form a centrepiece on Southsea Common and accompany, among other things, a vintage fair, food stalls and live performance stage.
    We would greatly value the fact that a display of military vehicles, accompanied by some of their owners (no doubt with some interesting stories of their own to tell about them), will add colour and interest to the commemorations for all those attending.
    At this stage, we would be grateful for expressions of interest from members.  Amy Tilt (Events and Sponsorship Manager) or Daniel Watts, (Events Team) can be contacted on the emails below.  We look forward to hearing from you.

    11:00 amSt Albans City Centre
    St Albans BID is delivering this event again as part ofHeritage Open Days, England's largest festival of history and culture, where every year in September, places across the country celebrate their heritage, community and history. This year’s theme is‘People Power’and we’re set to celebrate the famous faces of St Albans throughout timein a participative format to excite and engage visitors of all ages.
    As a tribute to the talents of our famous residents through the decades, and the time periods they influenced, there will be historic vehicles lining the streets(that’s where you come in!), musical performances, dancers and entertainers joining in to create an unmissable day.
    We would LOVE you to bring your vehicle along on the day. Last year, we had so much positive feedback from the public that they so enjoyed seeing the cars and their owners!
    Details still being finalised but road closures on the day of George St and Catherine Street will start at 8am. We won’t be able to have any vehicle movement between 10.30am – 5.00pm, so will advise of entry times soon.  Presume you will want to stay with your vehicle throughout the day to be able to chat about it with the public? However, it’s not compulsory and we will have security around the streets and hope that sufficient volunteers will be around at any given time to help look out for each other’s vehicles. …
    • IMPS members are invited to show their vehicles, but will need to book in advance. Please contact Sarah at events@stalbansbid.com
