Chipping Campden Report
Freezing day Out at the Chipping Campden Show!
Three Flying Standards managed to park together, Dennis Brown's Flying 12, John Maxwell's Flying 9 and the Webmaster's Flying 12 DHC
Its midsummer, and the sun is supposed to shine. Not on this Sunday -
Apart from the spectacular collection of cars, other highlights were mostly musical: The Chipping Campden School's Brass band kept the freezing crowd outside entertained and an excellent three piece band played for those who were sensible enough to gather in the school hall for very necessary coffee and teas. Back outside, there was also a running commentary from John McCartney, whose roving microphone managed to interview many of the owners of the interesting cars present. Unfortunately, more or less everyone decided to go home early just to get warm again!
Some of the other Standards present are captured in these thumbnails, please click on them to see larger versions.
