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

Our annual show at the Queen Elizabeth Park broke a few records this year. The weather proved exceptionally kind helping to create the perfect atmosphere.

Over 4000 people visited the site during the day and were treated to a varied array of vehicles with over 400 on display including cars, motor-cycles and commercial vehicles. A rare treat to see so many at one time in one place! We were lucky enough to be joined by several neighbouring car clubs who also displayed their vehicles.

The food and drink kiosks were kept busy and the Children’s Corner, complete with entertainers, proved invaluable to young family groups. The band kept us entertained throughout the day with several walks around the site and with 191 stall holders, we hope that our auto-jumble enthusiasts were able to find parts they had been searching for!

Big thank you to all members that helped over the weekend, when everyone pulls together it makes for a perfect day!

For those wishing to return next year entry forms should be available on our web site from next February onwards. Look forward to seeing all of you again next year and hope you enjoyed the day, we certainly did!

(Special thanks to club member, Paul Jerome, for contributing some brilliant images!)
