Classic Car 01

Following the success of last year's classic car display at Haddenham Fete, Jerome Flaxton is organising another collection of classic vehicles at this year's Fete on Saturday 11th June. Last year, he gathered together a wonderful and varied collection of 16 locally owned classic cars and military vehicles at Manor Farm and he would love to see even more cars there this year.

Jerome says: "Last year's event was a great day as the car owners could not only enjoy each other's cars but also enjoy the fete and local open gardens too. The cars were a popular attraction in a wonderful setting and we are very grateful to Tom Bucknell for allowing us to use this space."

He adds: "The Haddenham Fete is a significant fundraiser for the village community so it would be wonderful to receive a voluntary donation of £5 from each car owner towards the fete's charitable funds".

Sixteen-year-old Jerome is passionate about classic cars and will be starting the Classic Vehicle Restoration course at Bicester College in September.

Jerome adds: "Vehicles would need to arrive at Manor Farm no later than 12.30 and remain on site (due to moving vehicle restrictions) until 4:30pm. Car owners attend at their own risk, but people really respect these lovely old vehicles and we will make sure there are plenty of us there to supervise and talk to visitors. As this year's Fete co-incides with the Queen's Official Birthday, we are encouraging car owners to be creative and add some red, white and blue to the display!"

Jerome is appealing to all classic car owners to please get in touch and book a place at this year's show. There will be a larger display area available at Manor Farm this year, but places are still limited, on a first come, first served basis.

To book a place, please contact Jerome Flaxton by email at jdflaxton@googlemail.com or by phone or text on 07818 557956 . He will send you an entry form and further information.
