Didn’t Paul Meechan promise us on Thursday that the weather would be kind?
You can always trust a pilot (a new role as show day weather forecaster awaits!). A terrific showing of club members and local classic car & motorcycle enthusiasts gathered at Sainsbury’s to follow the Queen in her Rolls Royce and the Samba Band on the open topped double decker (yes, really!) as they headed to the Promenade to park up and enjoy the day.
Picnic hampers and camp chairs were put to good use such was the weather and the owners spent an enjoyable afternoon talking to an enthusiastic public about their classics.
This is certainly a popular and very well run, family friendly event, which is rightly well supported by many local clubs & owners.
Congratulations go to the organisers and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.
We are also looking forward to seeing the picture in the local paper of what looked like a world record attempt on fitting as many people as possible into a Model T Ford !
