“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.
