Vintage year for town car show
Vehicles from pre-1986 go on display
PEOPLE who feel the need for speed will be in for a treat this summer when vintage vehicles are displayed in a village.
The Gerrards Cross Classic Car and Motorcycle Show, which takes place at the Memorial Centre, in East Common, was launched in 2009 and is now in its sixth year.
Since it started, it has gone on to attract more and more people each year and it is hoped that the trend will continue this year.
It is organised jointly by the Rotary Club of Gerrards Cross and Chalfont St Peter, and the Abbeyfield Gerrards Cross Society, which provides housing for the elderly in the village.
This year, cars and motorbikes from 1986 and earlier will be on display, and are expected to include MGs, a Rolls Royce, Jaguars and Bentleys.
Motorcycles will include Harley Davidsons and Triumphs.
Suzie Bower, of the Gerrards Cross Community Association, which is based at the Memorial Centre and which hosts the event, said: “It’s a family event and it will give children the chance to see the cars that their parents and grandparents used to drive. The owners of the vehicles will be there, so people will be able to ask them all about their history.
“It’s got more and more popular this year, and it’s is a nice thing for families to do during the summer break.”
The event this year takes place on Wednesday, August 13, from 2pm until 5pm, and people are encouraged to go along with their family and friends.
Refreshments and a licensed bar will be available throughout the event.
Entry is £1 but children under the age of 14 get in for free.
If you would like to enter a car in the event, then call the Gerrards Cross Community Association on 01753 883 759, or go to www.gxca.org.uk.
