Bank Holiday Monday was true to form in that it rained. And rained. And rained.
We had a fairly busy weekend with one thing and another so decided that we would head across to the Woodford Classic Car Rally. It’s only a short drive from ours to Woodford so we thought it would be a nice way to get some fresh air without having to go too far away.
I’d seen an advert for the event pop up on my Facebook feed and thought it might be a nice little thing to do with the children. Plus it had the added benefit of being cheap (hurrah) and the money raised going to charity.
We donned our wellies and made the short trip across the A6 to Woodford. My parents met us there and we had a good walk around, taking in the cars. Mr D is beginning to recognise letters so much fun was had spotting letters on the car number plates, all the while we were trying to disuade him from putting his hands all over the cars!
Some of the cars were in absolute mint condition, despite being old and I love that there are enthusiasts who spend their time maintaining cars like this.
The children had a good run around whilst we stopped to look at the cars before Damian and my parents got a hotdog and the children had an ice cream.
We then headed into the cricket club house where they were serving tea and coffee as well as some delicious home made cakes. The children started getting a bit restless so after we had drank our drinks we headed back out and back to our cars.
We passed an hour or so there and it was good to see so many different cars. Some have really stood the test of time and look stylish today; others less so and they are very much ‘of their time’. It will be interesting to see what cars turn up at events like this in another thirty of so years time!
