  CHMC DONATES $1000 to CWA DISASTER Relief Fund

Just as Council did in 2019 to assist with bushfire relief efforts, the CHMC has again donated funds to help the CWA in its work helping flood disaster affected communities in NSW. Club Delegates at the AGM in Temora in April 2021 unanimously voted to send $1000 to the Country Women's Association Disaster Relief Fund.Whether it be floods or fire, or other community needs, when their communities and those nearby need help CHMC clubs across NSW step in to assist in various ways. As well as donating directly via Council, our Clubs are very often involved in raising money or goods and services for local projects and needs, please support our Clubs when they are fundraising to assist those who can benefit directly from our help.

                                                                                       THE COUNCIL OF HERITAGE MOTOR CLUBS NSW (CHMC)                                                                                                               REPRESENTS and promotes the interests of HERITAGE, HISTORIC & CLASSIC VEHICLE CLUBS THROUGHOUT N.S.W. 

Members of CHMC Affiliated Clubs own, preserve and restore cars, trucks, motorbikes, buses and tractors that are over 30 years old, i.e. heritage, historic or classic vehicles.  They share one common purpose, to keep alive the sights and sounds of the vehicles and machines that were an integral part of the automotive and transport history of Australia.Some of those vehicles are more than 100 years old, others are from the 1980s, some are rare, some are unique, and many are everyday vehicles from our nation's past. All are examples of our country's automotive culture through time. Heritage and historic vehicles are not still here by accident, they survive because someone has cared for them through time, or someone has rescued them just in time.

THE YEAR 1930 SAW THE END OF AN ERA FOR MANY MOTOR CAR MANUFACTURERS AND DENOTES THE END OF THE VINTAGE PERIOD. Take a look at chmc's video celebrating vintage vehicles on our FAcebook page
