Following the interest shown in the Classic Car evening on 19th July, the Trustees think it would be a good idea to have an evening about the cars we drive.  We all drive different makes and models and don’t know very much about the others. Do you drive a ‘classic’, or a classic-in-the-making, or something modern which you dearly love? Are you a detailing fanatic? Can you think of nothing better than making your car shine, or love spending time tinkering with your motor? If you do.... We could then have a look at your car in the car park. So let’s all have a nosey at other makes and models.
