Vintage Car 01

A display of locally-owned Classic Cars is planned at this year's Haddenham Fete on Saturday 6th June.

The idea for this extra attraction came from 15 year old local student, Jerome Flaxton, who co-owns a 1964 Triumph Herald with his Dad. Jerome is passionate about cars and hopes to go to Bicester College after his GCSE's to specialise in Classic Car Restoration.

As Jerome says: " I came up with the idea as I've noticed various classic cars parked in local driveways around Haddenham, so I talked to Tom Bucknell at Manor Farm and Tim Armitt , organiser of the Fete, about the idea of having a display there this year. So far, around half a dozen local owners have signed up, but we'd love to see more. There is room for about 16 vehicles in the yard at Manor Farm, so if there is anyone who lives in Haddenham or surrounding villages who has a classic vehicle and would like to take part, please contact me".

A £5 donation is requested from each owner, which will be added to the Fete's funds for local causes. Cars would need to arrive at Manor Farm by 12.30pm and remain until 4.30pm.

Please contact Jerome Flaxton on: 01844 290900 or by Email at: jdflaxton@googlemail.com and he will send you a booking form.
