Help for Heroes Weekend

The Club and Trust were both well represented at Manor House, Essex this weekend for a special 'Help for Heroes' event.  Highlights of the event were a DBR2 Chassis/Body on display, a Classic Car Show and Aston Martin racing driver Tony Brooks signing copies of his new book 'Poetry in Motion', which is also available to purchase from the Trust Shop!   

Despite the weather, the event was well received by over 150 visitors.

"Highlight of UK Tour"

We had two members from Victoria, Australia stop by the Barn today.  They are winding down a 4 week tour of the UK making sure to visit all the historic Aston locations.  Spending a few hours at the Barn and a drive in the Ulster has made this the "highlight of the UK Tour".
