VILLAGE DAY CHERISHED CAR RUN
Saturday 9th June 2018
Cars will assemble at 11 am with coffee and biscuits for all entrants in front of the grand house at the City of London Freemen's School, Ashtead Park KT21 1ET. The vehicles will leave the school at 11.50 sharp to parade through The Street, Ashtead at mid-day en route to the Queen Elizabeth II recreation field, Barnett Wood Lane. A beautiful 1903 Daimler lead the 2017 run with the High Sheriff of Surrey as honoured passenger.
. . . do you have a special, cherished, vintage, veteran, classic, 'super-car' or restored commercial vehicle ? Then please do join us for our magnificent 35th annual Rotary Village Day Cherished Car Run.
In an exciting change the vehicles will be met by four camels with “Lawrence of Arabia” riders and two stilt walking soldiers to escort them through the show and parade in front of 6000 – 8000 people. Then they will join the static display in the grounds with all present receiving a Rotary Village Day Participants Plaque. The camels will lead the cars around the grounds before entertaining the crowds in the arena.
Every year Ashtead Rotary Village Day draws enthusiastic crowds of people of all age groups from Mole Valley and Greater Surrey and this year our principle guest will be the amazing English actress, Jenny Seagrove (Local Hero, A Woman of Substance, Judge John Deed). She will ride in the lead vehicle from City Freemen's School, and will open the show and present the Community Service Awards.
Additional Attractions: Joseph’s Amazing Camels will be racing in the arena and The Contraptioneering Crumbucket Dragon and over 120 side stalls will bring a big, highly appreciative, audience to your prized vehicles.
