We are lucky to have a spacious area for display of our large collection of books and magazines relating to motoring topics which is open every noggin and natter night. There are many old vehicle manuals and technical books for researching information for use when restoring a vehicle plus much general interest reading of a motoring nature.
Most items have been donated and further donations are always welcome. In most cases the library items can be loaned to members.
There is also an interesting display of motoring related items.

Spare Parts Department
Over the years the Branch has acquired a huge number of parts, mostly donated, and there is a steady inflow and outflow of parts that are now so hard to source for older vehicles. We always welcome donations from people clearing out when moving house, clearing an estate, closing down an automotive business etc.
The Parts Department is open from 9.00am to 12 noon every Wednesday and noggin and natter night (first Thursday of the Month). Members are welcome to join the camaraderie of the Parts Department Wednesday group. Just show up. There is always plenty to do sorting parts, helping
with grounds maintenance etc.

The Club rooms may be available for hire by local organisations on a case-by-case basis, or to members for functions.
A Car Trailer, owned by the branch, can be lent out to members at a fee. For more information, contact John Campbell on 03 686 0252
