Like most classic car clubs, the Ford Sidevalve Owners' Club has a system of "Regional Groups" which, as its name implies, provides club members in most parts of the country (and in some cases abroad) with a means of maintaining more contact with the club and fellow, local members than just the club's magazine can provide. Regional groups arrange runs and attendance to various events, as well as providing a social side of club membership, putting you in touch with other members in your area.


If you haven't gone along to your regional group meeting before, or not for a long time, why not give it a try? This invitation also extends to those of you who are not yet members of the FSOC, please identify yourself on arrival at the venue and you'll be made most welcome, although be warned; you may end up joining our club!



Please see below for details of our regional organisers, contact details and meeting venues. Note that a number of our Regional Groups have their own website, given more specific details of the group. Simply click your mouse on the organiser's photograph and if the have a local website it will all appear.
