About us

Canterbury Volkswagen Enthusiast Club

The Canterbury Volkswagen Enthusiast Club was formed in July 1986 to cater for owners of these German automobiles. Its aim is to provide the opportunity for people to meet others with a common interest. Families and friends are all welcome.

The club was formed with the intention of being low-cost, easy going, and of course enjoyable for all those involved. Events are held on a regular basis, and a newsletter comes out bi-monthly.

The club caters for all Volkswagens, from early vehicles right through to the new Beetle.
