Sunday 27 May 2018 - Lion Green

 

Nine great years...

" In 2009, I was invited by the Haslemere Festival to assemble a group of Classic Cars to display at the Donkey Derby, I ended up with about 40… this has grown to the amazing variety of well over 200 vehicles seen on Lion Green in 2015.

We now attract cars and traders from a wide area and with support from the Festival and sponsors we have been able to achieve a ‘vintage’ fete where arts and crafts meets farmers market, while the focus remains on classics spanning several generations.

Each year we seem to go from strength to strength with  Lion Green bulging with classic cars, crowds and cake in the afternoon!

It’s fantastic to see so many people enjoying the cars while relaxing in the sunshine listening to jazz, we’ve been able to provide free entertainment for the people of Haslemere while still raising money for the Haslemere Festival and helping to fund other events in the local community."

The Haslemere Classic Car Show and Tour has been running since 2009 and has attracted a great variety of classics from the turn of the 20th century to the early seventies, including most of the major marques and a number of more unusual and rare vehicles.

Each year we seem to attract a bigger audience coming from all over the South East of England. Over the years the tour has covered many miles through the beautiful local countryside surrounding the town. More and more of our entrants are dressing to ‘match’ their cars and taking place in our ‘Best Dressed’ and ‘People’s Choice’ competitions.

OUR 2017 WINNER'S

Best dressed car and crew

Judged by Adrain Hardwick, Sales Director of sponsors Keats of Haslemere and the Mayor Cllr. Malcolm Carter a difficult decision was reached. The stylish winners were David and Jan Jeffcoat in the ‘Beast’ a 1927 Sunbeam 25HP Tourer. Adrian said “There were so many fantastic entrants this year, with cars from around the world. It was particularly difficult to select a winner, but it was decided that David and Jan Jeffcoat and their crew had just gone the extra mile.”

The runner-up prizes were presented to two rather different Fords - John Childs with his Wartime 1943 Ford GPW Jeep and Roy Hunt with his spectacular Ford Skyliner with a retractable hardtop.

OUR 2017 WINNER'S  People's Choice

 

For the first time in the HCCS history  the public agreed with the 'Best Dressed' result and lucky David also picked up the ‘People’s Choice’ award, as the car the public would most like to take home. He received a day out at Brooklands, from the Brookland’s Trust Members who sponsored the competition. Runner’s-up were Lisa Costello with her 1961 BMW Isetta and Roy and Julie Reynolds in their 1954 Sunbeam 90 Coupé.

Haslemere Hogs

The 2017 show saw the long anticipated launch of the HCCS Haslemere Hog - 'Road HOG'. This community initiative saw 59 decorated hogs on display around Haslemere prior to auction and raised over £35k for charity. Road HOG the 60th and last hog had been kept under wraps until his unveiling at the show. Designed for the HCCS by local illustrator and classic car enthusiast Derek Matthews. Road HOG was raffled at the show and was won by one of our regular entrants Carmen Ashton-Jones and so will hopefully be seen back at HCCS 2018.
