The Wolseley Owners Club Ltd was launched in May 2011, by a group of Wolseley owners and enthusiasts, to serve the growing needs of the Wolseley car owner and enthusiast.
Today, the club is going from strength to strength and is run by 17 team members and has 27 Area Contacts and 19 Model Contacts who are all here to assist you. There are many benefits to joining The Wolseley Owners Club – practical, social and miscellaneous.
The club is open to anybody who has an interest in these great British classic cars, there is no need to own a Wolseley.
Our objectives are to raise awareness of Wolseleys and help to preserve the Wolseley marque, along with other Wolseley clubs and associations.
The Wolseley Owners Club is a not for profit organisation and the emphasis is firmly on our members.
Anne Heywood, known and greatly respected in the Wolseley and classic car world for over 25 years, was Wolseley Owners Club’s Founding Chairman. A fact – Anne, many years ago, was the first lady to make it into the classic car world as a ‘Chairman’. A great motivator, Anne is always approachable, caring, compassionate and dedicated. In the first 12 months of running the club, with Anne’s previous experience of a being a Chairman in a classic car club, she inspired confidence and gave reassurance to the team while they were learning their new roles. Never afraid to roll up her sleeves and get stuck in, Anne will assist everyone with everything and anything at any time. A true and loyal team leader and member of the team. Anne’s high standards and pro-activeness in raising the bar in order to achieve excellence for the club in all areas, set the club on the right path to success. Anne continues today as our Vice President of the club where she plays a highly valued part in taking the club forward.
Phillip Ladanowski is greatly respected by many in the classic car world. In Wolseley circles in particular, he has been known for over 15 years. As Wolseley Owners Club Chairman, Phillip worked tirelessly to ensure the Wolseley Owners Club raised its profile. He attended more than 85 events as our Chairman. With his inexhaustible energy, he drove thousands of miles in ‘Oxy’ his trusty 4/44 and then in later years in ‘Horace’, his 6/110 hearse, often driving from one event to another, from the North of England down to the South; once on the same day! Phillip, highly intelligent, is known for his fair sense of play and is an inspiration to all the team and the club’s members. He is a man of action and not just words and the club was enriched by his Chairmanship. Phillip’s technical expertise is first class and we learned much from him over the years. We wish him well for the future.
