Visit to Jack Henley

2 September, 2023 @ 11:00 - 16:00

Trip to Jack Henley's collection

For many years, John Sutton has known a most interesting character called Jack Henley who lives near Marden in Kent. Jack is a remarkable person who built up a very successful haulage business called Henley Transport but also, while doing that, put together several significant collections ranging from fountain pens, postcards and toy cars and trucks to juke boxes, wurlitzers, clocks and cars.

Jack has very kindly invited as many SDC members and their guests as can go to spend the day at his house on Saturday, 2nd September. We are invited to arrive at any time after 11am and leave at leisure, probably at about 4pm. As it is Jack’s home we will be visiting, understandably, he cannot feed us. We will, therefore, each need to take our own picnics and refreshments.

Some coming to the event may want to travel there and back home in the day but others may prefer to stay either the Friday night and/or the Saturday night somewhere nearby. John Sutton has managed to provisionally reserve several rooms at The Camden Arms in Pembury, which is about twenty-five minutes drive from Jack’s home.

If you would like to take part in this one off opportunity, please will you email as soon as possible to let him know and to tell him if you will be accompanied and, if so, by whom.

If you want to stay for one or both the nights at The Camden Arms, please tell John when you notify him of your wish to attend the event. The rooms at the hotel will be allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis so be sure to contact John quickly if you want to reserve a room.
