Churchill Show

The weather has never failed us for the Churchill Show. This year was no exception, Sunday was just wall to wall sunshine.

Over 500 classic  vehicles descended onto the cricket pitch next to the church in this quintessimal  English village in deepest rural Oxfordshire.

The Club's area was populated with Standards from 1926 onwards:

Paul Newsome, 1926 Standard Charlecotte

Steve O'Hara and Malcolm Graham, 1950's Standard 10's

Steve Brook, Standard Companion

John and Rachel Maxwell, 1937 Flying 12

Peter Lockley 1954 Swallow Doretti

Ray and Di Ferris, Standard Pennant

Steve Smetlzer, Austin A30 (?)

John and Carol Plowman, TR6

Lynda and I tried to get there in the 1921 SLO, but unfortunately suffered a puncture on the way,  so had to continue in a modern.

The show has much for everyone to enjoy:

A jazz band kept playing most of the day. The bar served Hook Norton Ales and did not run out, despite the superb weather The Ice-cream cones were £1, except the 99's which were £1.50, very reasonable. And all the proceeds to charity.

We bought a contribution to the picnic and everyone sat around in the sunshine enjoying themselves. The only disappointment is that we have to wait 2 years until the next one.
