The town can be proud of itself

As the vehicle organiser for the Bexhill Roaring 20s, I would like to thank all the vehicles that attended the spectacular event last Saturday.

The vintage vehicles were a sight to behold, gleaming in the beautiful sunshine.

The oldest vehicle was a 1909 Brush Runabout.

The wonderful 1915 Hudson 6/40 led the parade of vehicles through the town, with Mrs Irene Hazell, wife of the late Brian Hazell, on board.

Brian was one of the Bexhill Festivals originators 25 years ago. The Vintage Motor Cycle Club, provided the Maasai Warriors with an experience to remember, with a run in the motor bike and side car along the front.

Bexhill Classic Cycle Group were resplendent in their plus fours with their vintage cycles.

A group of American vehicles were beautifully displayed on the Eastern lawns, again remembering the 25th anniversary of the Bexhill Festival. The Bexhill 100 Motoring Club and the Bexhill Classic Car Association, provided a more modern view of Bexhill’s history, by keeping the birthplace of British motor racing alive in people’s minds.

A very big thank you must go to all the marshals, who were there from 6am preparing the day and did not stop working until 7pm. Well done Bexhill, you should be very proud of yourselves.
