The 9th annual Car Show was a success despite the weather of the showery condition. Receipts were slightly down on previous years and our gratitude goes to the enthusiastic exhibitors who were willing to share their prize possessions with the visitors who need to be congratulated for turning out when the forecast was so gloomy. We are also grateful to all those who donated cakes for teas.
There were so many highlights but only a few can be covered. It is the 100th year since William Morris started building cars at Cowley near Oxford and a 1932 Morris Oxford together with three Morris Minors were on display. There was a rare sight of three Lea Francis cars from 1929-32 in the unique atmosphere of cars amongst the gravestones.
The show has gradually included other forms of transport over the years and this year over 30 prams were on display owned by Anne Bartle and Carol Monks and one of the most interesting prams was Victorian, originally sold by Eaden Lilley, the now defunct Cambridge department store that was in Market Street.
