The VSRA Speedway Museum....by Alan Hodkinson

The VSRA (Veteran Speedway Riders Association) has been given the opportunity to create a Speedway Museum in the grounds of the Paradise Wildlife Park, Broxbourne in Hertfordshire; about 15 mins drive from Rye House Speedway.

The owner of the wildlife park, ex rider Peter Sampson, has made the required space available, it will require a great deal of funds and work to put up the buildings to house the collection. We have sponsors for about £25,000 but we will need something nearing twice that amount, so we are looking for donations and fund raising and when the time comes to start on the work we will be looking for volunteer workers for bricklaying, woodworking, plumbing, etc.

If anyone can possibly help with donations, cheques can be made out to the VSRA and sent to the secretary Vic White, 90 Ruskin Avenue, Long Eaton, Notts. NG10 3HX. All donations will be acknowledged by post. Please make offers of physical help to the same address.

A book containing all the names of people who help will be on show at the Museum. Those who have bought the Once a Jolly Swagman video or DVD from me may be interested to know that £5.00 from each purchase will be donated to the fund.

For any more info you can contact George Barclay, Tel 020 8592 3361 or myself at Vikingukvideo@aol.com

Should our Quest fail all donations will be returned to source.

    "Interesting reading. My father was Bill Weston, rider before and after the war. He was the stunt rider for Dirk Bogarde in the film Once a Jolly Swagman. Would love to come to the museum. Do you have any history on my father? He rode at Rye House, Eastbourne, West Ham, Hastings, and so on."
