How the Club was formed by Dave Debenham (1)
Although I owned a MK11Consul Convertible, I joined the MK1 O/C. (of which I’m still a member) & went on a run to Brighton with them, in 1976,on that run was a chap called Ken Titchmarsh, who also had a Convertible MK11,& another chap called Rod Charmers who had a Zoddy, we got talking & decided to form a club for MK11s, (because there was not one at that time).But as it turned out neither of them were interested in forming the club, so yours truly started it off, by placing an Ad in Exchange & Mart (remember it ?) asking for anyone interested to contact me. I received 18 replies
Thus aided by Dave Berry the original Sec. of the MK1 Owners Club. (Who now lives in
I sent my 1st "Newsletter" out in Sept of that year, (this was just a single page typed sheet back then) and we got the 18 to join as members! By the time I handed the job over in about 1992 we had 1124. I have retained the post of Honorary President since then.
Now 16yrs later, I’ve been asked back to the post of Secretary & hoping to build those numbers back up, with the help of the Committee members, and you the Members.
I went onto own the convertible for over 20yrs.My biggest achievement, apart from maybe the club, must be in getting 114 MK11’s together on our own Brighton run in 1982.
Dave Debenham tribute 2012 .
Sadly Dave Debenham passed away earlier this year and his funeral was held in Chichester in May . Family ,friends and club colleagues attended with their cars . There was a low key rock n roll celebration of Dave's life after the funeral and everyone agreed this is a fitting way for him to be remembered . Articles from our club magazine News on Twos can be seen in the links below . A huge thanks to Dave and his family from everyone and especially for his huge devotion to Mk2's and the owners club .
