Ingram Lloyd says: “We were delighted with the turnout of “wheels” and the number of visitors, approx. 215 excluding exhibitors. After some minimal expenses we raised £820 for the village church of St James the Less. Many commented on the wide and interesting line up. In all there were just over 50 exhibits.”

“Village non-car contributions included Alec Cave’s bicycle wheeled along by Jane Cave, Gabriella Magnay’s wheeled cot and early pram and Anya Crowley’s Nana’s temporary wheelchair complete with body (not Nana), a dummy. Tractors from Donald Taylor’s Fergusson TEF and Cockshutt plough and Colin Russell’s Fordson model N ensured the agricultural side was represented. Cars included Hywel Lloyd’s newly re-sprayed TR2, Joanne Delaney’s Jaguar XK and James Garnett’s Jaguar S type. Stan West provided class (and size) with a Bentley, Rolls Royce, Lagonda and an Aston Martin. John Blaney’s much cherished Bentley, Ronnie Langdon’s frog eyed Sprite behaved itself thus earning its pet name of “Sunshine”. Robin Taylor’s TVR with chameleon paintwork excited many comments as it changed hues in the sunshine. Julian Rodway’s VW campervan provided considerable interest for several children who seemed to prefer it to his MG TC. Other cars included a Porsche Speedster, and Colin McRae’s Ford Focus WRC X7 – any resemblance to a Ford Focus is stretching the imagination just too far.
I hope to run this event again in September 2016 and while I hope to have a different line up of wheels please contact me if you have something different and would like to be included again, or you know someone else who might have something of interest.”
