Classics on the Green attracts thousands

 Published on: 23rd September 2013   |   By: The Newsdesk   |   Category:

Classic car lovers flocked in their thousands to The Green last month for what was the biggest event of its kind ever seen in Croxley. Watford & District Classic Vehicle Club’s Classics on the Green, on August 7, saw an estimated 8,000 villagers turn out to admire a range of stylish vehicles from throughout the decades. Around 2,000 cars crammed onto the Green for the event – which has now completed its 12th year in Croxley. The figure of attendees smashes the event’s best ever with charity takings also the best the Watford & District Classic Vehicle Club has ever raised in the village. Approximately £4,200 was raised by generous car admirers, which will go to a range of charities. These include Leukaemia Research Fund, Cancer Research, Diabetes UK and Brain Tumour Research. A number of local causes will also benefit from the goodwill of enthusiasts who donated at the event. Watford & District Classic Vehicle Club president Cedric Levitt told My Croxley News that the event was a success. He said: “Classic Cars magazine has said that it is the fastest growing mid-week show. It was an amazing turnout; cars were still coming in at 8.30pm/9pm. We had a nice relaxed garden party atmosphere on the evening; everyone came in for free and was welcome. While there they put money into the buckets and we have raised a lot of money. “The cars are a good vehicle for raising money. The owners are great as well, they love it. Most are in their 50s, 60s or 70s and had these cars when they were younger, there is nothing like it. They enjoy showing them off to people and then put a couple of quid in the bucket which is fantastic.”
