Welcome to South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society website.


We are a Society which is based in the Solent area and currently have a joint membership of around 600, with vehicles ranging from Victorian bicycles and steam traction engines through to cars motorcycles and assorted commercial vehicles of various ages. In fact, as long as it is not customised, we welcome anything transport related provided it is over 25 years old. You do not need to own a vehicle to be a member.

SHVPS Tangmere8 2017We meet up on the second Wednesday evening each month and we usually have a run to a local place of interest on the last Sunday of each month.

Our social calendar includes an annual BBQ, skittles and quiz evenings and we even have a special Ladies’ Day with a free cream tea included for the ladies. In the winter, we hold a Dinner Dance and a Christmas Lunch. The majority of our events are subsidised for members.

Our main fund raising event is the highly successful and popular annual Classic Vehicle Show and Autojumble, held at Queen Elizabeth Country Park at Horndean, on the first Sunday in June.

New members are always welcome – please browse through our other pages for more information about our friendly club.

South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society - SHVPS

National Drive it Day for classic vehicles was supported by many motoring organisations last Sunday including the South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society - SHVPS who visited Rotherwick for a Posh Picnic!

The run took us to the Village Hall at Rotherwick where the sunshine made for a great day😁

Initiated by the Federation of Historical Vehicles, National Drive it Day highlights the interest in older vehicles and of course the large industry that supports the upkeep of our pride and joys!
