Triumph Camping and Caravan Club

The annual dinner/dance of the Triumph Camping and Caravan Club was held at the Berkeley Hotel, Coventry, last month.

The guest of honour was the club’s chairman, Mr W. H. Davis, accompanied by his wife.

After dinner the president of the club, Mr. P. D. Lilly, welcomed the guests. He announced that due to its affiliation with the British Leyland Camping and Caravan Association, the Triumph Camping and Carman Club now enjoys the same status as the Caravan Club of Great Britain, as it holds exemption certificates granted by the Ministry of Environment. In conclusion he thanked the social secretary Mr. K. Witt for his efforts in organising the function.
