Car club seeking new meeting place

Share this article

A car club which meets in Kettering once a month is on the hunt for a new meeting place, after having outgrown its current one.

The Comrades of VAG are owners of Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda vehicles, among others. They usually meet at the Telford Lodge Brewers Fayre car park in Kettering on the first Tuesday of the month.

Organiser Jamie Coates said: “We are a very sedate club who turn up, have a chat and look for new-found ideas on each others’ cars. We do not rev our engines or anything like that, it is purely a social gathering and we usually have about 15 members turn up.”

Jamie said the group, which is the Midlands branch of a national organisation, has been meeting regularly in Kettering for about five years and has had a good relationship with Telford Lodge.

Anyone who can help can contact Jamie by email at or search for the group at
