An eye-catching parade of classic cars lined up on Bexhill Seafront last Sunday when Bexhill 100 held its June Show.

The good weather held for the event, which took place along East Parade and a wide variety of cars were on display for people to enjoy and admire.

Lynn Brailsford, Secretary, of Bexhill 100 Motoring Club, said: “Some time ago, a request was received on the Bexhill 100 Motoring Club website from Debby and John Fuller asking if they could donate a trophy.

“John’s father Les, had passed away and his work colleagues at Ashdene Garage, London Road, Hurst Green had raised a substantial sum of money in Les’s memory for a memorial trophy to be presented.

“Les attended our Classic Car show each year in his Red MG midget.

It was decided that this trophy could be presented each time the Bexhill 100 Motoring Club have their shows along the seafront, Debby and John liked the idea.

The trophy is called the Les Fuller Trophy for the Best in Club, which is for club members only.

“In this tradition, this June’s winners were: Richard and Julia Hall (pictured) for their pristine 1955 Morris Minor convertible.”

Bexhill 100 Motoring Club took over the running of the highly popular Anglo/Continental Street Market just over three years ago, and the May 2016 market produced a record number of stalls.

This has enabled Bexhill 100 to make a donation of £750 to Shining Lights and this will go towards the 2016 Christmas lights in Bexhill.

During Sunday’s show Market Organiser, Lynn Brailsford and the Club Treasurer presented the cheque to Michael Matthews of Shining Lights.

On receiving the cheque, Michael said that Rother District Council have given Shining Lights the contract and Christmas lights budget for the next four years and it is fabulous that everyone in the community are working together to make our town a better place for the future.

Bexhill 100 Motoring Club plan to hold another seafront display on Sunday July 31 and work is already well under way for their main annual event – the Classic Car Show which will take place on August Bank Holiday Monday, August 29 at the Polegrove.

The Bexhill 100 Motoring Club was formed in 1999 to cater for the needs of all motoring enthusiasts. As such there are no restrictions to joining, age of vehicle, infact some members don’t own a vehicle. The Club is a member of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs.
