PETROL­HEADS gath­ered to show off their prized pos­ses­sions dur­ing the first Shep­per­ton Car Show on Sun­day. Event or­gan­iser Gary Critcher said he was in­spired to ar­range the event as he of­ten sees ‘quite in­ter­est­ing’ old cars parked around town. He said: “We had around 30 cars in the two hours we were there, which was quite good for a first time. “Ev­ery­one seemed to en­joy it. The most common com­ment I heard was ‘is it go­ing to be a reg­u­lar meet­ing?’. Passers-by were sur­prised to see the cars. Quite a few were in­trigued enough to stop and take a look at the cars and talk with the own­ers.” Mar­ques on show in­cluded Pon­tiac, MG, Tri­umph, Austin, Jaguar, Austin Healey, Volk­swa­gen, Alvis and Rolls Royce. Mr Critcher, owner of a 1966 Ford Mus­tang, said: “I think peo­ple were pleased that some­one had taken up the man­tle and or­gan­ised some­thing lo­cally.

“I am look­ing at mak­ing it a reg­u­lar bi-monthly meet­ing next year, start­ing in April/May, when the weather im­proves.” The get-to­gether was staged near the war memo­rial at the river end of Shep­per­ton High Street at Manor Park, in Church Road, be­tween 10am and noon.
