Blackthorn Classic Car Show

Last year Mechelle welcomed Keith Crompton and John Henderson to The Hummingbird Centre, showed them round introduced them to the team and our guests, towards the end of the visit both of them informed Mechelle that The Hummingbird Centre had been nominated as the chosen charity for the Blackthorn Classic Car Show as well as other local Community Projects..

The Blackthorn Classic Car Show was held on the 4th September. Each member of the organising team had their own favourite long range weather forecast and by Saturday 3rd we feared the worst. Oh we of little faith! The Showground was in perfect condition and there was not a drop of rain all day and we even had a few sunny periods. It was a great day!
The Piston Head pub, along with the home made cakes, the Fish and Chip van was a few of many tempting delights on offer.

It was record numbers for the display of classic vehicles going back many decades as well as some fancy dress to accompany the vehicles.

Alex Lester from BBC Radio Oxford presented the trophies and prizes and then spent time with Mechelle and the team finding out about the work that The Hummingbird Centre do.

What a great day.
