We are now living in strange and worrying times due to the COVID 19 virus epidemic. Due to the recent Government instructions to stay at home all the car shows for April and May this year have been cancelled or re scheduled for later in the year. At the time of writing this edition shows from June onward were still advertised as taking place . But it is very likely that this will change. So keep in contact with your local club rep. Keep watching the press and the internet.
Following discussions with Billing aquadrome, the decision has been made to CANCEL the AGM at the end of July. Although Billing are opening at the start of July, it is for caravans only, NO tents. Toilet and shower blocks will not be open. We would still have to social distance. It has been a tough decision, but we believe the right one. Hopefully All Granadas together may go ahead in September. We will keep you posted.

The Consul/Granada large car range was introduced in 1972 as the replacement for the Zephyr/Zodiac. Both the Consul and Granada shared the same modern bodyshell, the production started in December 1971 and continued until September 1977 when Ford announced its new Granada with cleaner, more elegant body style and featuring German built engines.
Ford dealer Harold Perry Motors in conjunction with Broadspeed turned this already fine car into something special. Read about the Mk2 Broadspeed Turbo Granada . . .
