CLASSIC CAR SHOW SCORES ANOTHER RUNAWAY SUCCESS
For the 23rd year crowds spilled in their thousands on to Harpenden Common at the end of July to view the spectacular array of 1200 classic cars, scooters and motorbikes at Classics on the Common. This was the ninth show to be organised by Rotary in Harpenden, the charity arm of Harpenden Village Rotary Club.
Event manager Liz Jack described the event as ‘a truly amazing day. I am so very proud of the effort and enthusiasm of all our members and the army of volunteers who made it happen. This is one of the major events in the classics calendar. But we see it also as a huge event for the local community where some 10,000 happy people and their children can enjoy classic cars in a wonderful setting. It helps to raise the profile of the town and Rotary, as well as substantial funds for charity.’
Last year, in just hours, Rotary in Harpenden raised more than £33,000 for local, children’s, national and international charities. We are hoping this year’s show will have raised a similar figure.
The organisers are very grateful to the management of Fairview New Homes Limited for allowing parking facilities on the site of the former Harpenden House Hotel during Classics on the Common this year.
