Report on the 2013 Show

Chippenham Lions held their Cherished Vehicle and Farm Fun Day on Sunday 2 June 2013 at Allington Farm. This was the second year we’d held this event and we were able to build on the success of last year and one of the ways we were able to achieved this was to combine it with the annual Allington Farm Shop open day.

 

The event was opened jointly by the Lions President, Brian Nicholson and Chippenham Deputy Mayor, Councillor John Scraggs.

 

We set a target of 150 vehicles for this year’s show, but in the event there was just over 200. The cars themselves were meticulously turned out by their proud owners and the perfect weather conditions allowed them to be seen at their best.  Amongst the individual entrants there were many owner’s clubs represented by marques as diverse as Jaguars and Volkswagen. It gave a good opportunity for the many owners to meet, chat and exchange technical information and, for many visitors, there was the nostalgia of seeing cars they had once owned all those years ago.

 

It was a wonderful day in which were able to raise in excess of £5000 and the Lions are very grateful to all those who attended and we hope they all had a good day. We hope this will become an established Chippenham event in the years to come and all the money raised will go to Lions Charities - local, national and international.
