Hatfield classic car show - a success
MORE than 200 vehicles helped make an annual free classic car show in Hatfield the “biggest and best” yet.
A range of unusual and interesting motors including a fully functional 1920s ice cream van and a 1936 hearse filled Birchwood Leisure Centre’s ground for the Hatfield Heritage Vehicle Society event, which was backed by the North London MG Club.
It was not just unusual cars on show, but also sporty numbers, from Ferraris, to the classic Dodge Charger used in former American TV hit The Dukes of Hazzard and the University of Hertfordshire’s formula racing car (both pictured below).
Held on D-Day Sunday an estimated �1,000 was raised for Help for Heroes to mark the day.
Organiser, former Labour councillor Colin Croft said: “It was a brilliant event, the biggest yet.

“At least a few thousand came, but it’s hard to measure as it’s a free event.
“What made it extra special was that we had all different types of cars from all eras and the kids loved the egg and spoon race and other events we had on.”
