Head to Ashover for Classic Car & Motorcycle Show

FANS of classic vehicles should make a beeline for Ashover.

The third annual Classic Car & Motorcycle Show gets into gear on the Rectory Fields, Milken Lane at 10am today, Sunday, July 28.

As well as giving vehicle enthusiasts the chance to marvel at vintage motors, the show will be driving up the funds of charities.

The good causes which will benefit will be First Taste, Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline, Hope Springs Recovery Centre, Macmillan Nurses, Samaritans, Weston Park Cancer Charity, and other charities nominated by the four Rotary clubs which organise the show. Last year the show raised more than £8,000 for charity coffers.

There will be an opportunity to browse craft and autojumble stalls and watch entertainers such as vocalist and recording star Diana Edwards, violinist Kate Chruscicka, Ashover Brass Band and Direction Theatre Arts.

Other attractions at the event, which is open until 4pm, include a fairground, food, ice-cream and a bar.

Entrance is £5 for adults, free to under 12s, who are accompanied by an adult. Public car parking is free.

Exhibitors’ vehicles are £5 a time, with up to two passengers free.

The event is organised by the Rotary Clubs of Chesterfield, Chesterfield Scarsdale, Matlock and Clay Cross. Sponsors are Autoworld, PCS Motor Factors, Stuart Bradley Jewellers, BRM Solicitors and Castle Graphics.
