Book now for literary journey
at the MotorFest in a really special way.
“Some superb vehicles are brought to the MotorFest which would be worthy winners of a Concours d’Elegance at any motoring event, and we believe this adds a great competition element.
“People really enjoyed looking at these beautiful cars last year and I am sure that will be the case again this year.”
Cars and motorcycles not taking part in the Concours d’Elegance will also be lined up in Coronation Park and streets throughout Ormskirk town centre.
About 300 cars and motorcycles from all eras of motoring will be on display and many of them will take part in parade laps around the town centre.
There is still time to enter cars and motorcycles.
Entry into the Concours d’Elegance costs £15, visit www.ormskirkmotorfest.com for details.
The organisers are also looking for sponsors for this year’s eventto help the Ormskirk MotorFest to continue to be a major attraction.
There are a number of ways sponsors can become involved in MotorFest.

The initiative, now in its third year, runs until Saturday, September 23 and is organised by Lancashire County Council.
The Reading Journey is free and aims to keep children reading throughout the summer holidays.
They just need to visit a library to join in and complete as many tasks as they want to over the summer, including reading books of their choice, writing, making things and exploring.
On joining, children will receive an activity book with 13 Lancashireinspired characters.
Each has four optional tasks to complete.
Children can choose the characters they want to collect and the tasks they want to participate in.
After completing tasks, children will be rewarded with stickers and certificates.
County Councillor Peter Buckley, cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: “This is a great way to encourage children to keep reading and learning throughout their summer holidays.
“We launched the Reading Journey a couple of years ago and each year over 7,000 children have taken part in it.”
Libraries around the county will be hosting different events to promote the journey.
