Driv­ers rally for school lunch

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Most weeks, Firth Pri­mary School’s field is well used by chil­dren want­ing to hone their rugby or soc­cer skills or who just en­joy run­ning around on it with their mates.

Last Satur­day, that field was lit­tered with col­lec­tors’ cars rang­ing from 1932 un­til 1980.

The Post-Vin­tage Car Rally chose Firth Pri­mary as Desti­na­tion Lunch Stop. Forty-nine cars from all over the North Is­land stopped off at the school and with prin­ci­pal James Eldridge step­ping in as head chef on the bar­be­cue, none of the driv­ers left with an empty stom­ach.

A keen crowd also gath­ered at the school to check out some of the post-vin­tage beau­ties.
