I am writing to ask if you can obtain for me any information re Rolls-Royce and Bentley Owner Drivers Club. ‘The Coach House, Whistlers Wood, The Ridge, Woldingham, Surrey, CR3 7AN.
After seeing an advertisement in your magazine I sent an application to join the Club in May of this year. The fee was £22.50. I received Membership Card No. 456NR, newsletter and a leaflet advertising gold and silver tie-pins etc. with the Club Motif. On 5th July I sent off Postal Orders for £28.20 for gold tie-pin.
Since then I have received no reply to several letters sent on the following dates: 9th August, 15th Sepember and 27th September, the last addressed to Mr. J. Anderson named on their notepaper as a director of the Club. Neither have I received any more newsletters.
I would be grateful if you could let me know if you have any information as to the genuineness of this club.

(We took this matter up by informing the Rolls-Royce and Bentley ODC (which has no connection, we understand, with the R-R and Bentley Club referred to editorially in Motor Sport) of our correspondent’s complaint. No reply has been received, nor had Mr. Jenkinson heard from them as we closed for Press. Other members, please note. -Ed.)
