HIS year’s Classic Car Day at the Deer’s Hut in Liphook was the “biggest and best ever,” say organisers.
And it proved to be a landmark year, as the 30th event raised more than £10,000 for good causes.
Deer’s Hut managing director Deborah Steel said: “This year’s event was the biggest and best ever.
“The weather was with us on the day and it was all down to local people’s interest.
“We had so much support for the event, particularly from the Scouts and the Guides, who are celebrating their 100th anniversary.
“It was a true community event for Liphook, and the atmosphere was electric. It was a truly British event.”
Hundreds of cars were on display at the event for visitors to enjoy, and the winner of the Cubs’ and Scouts’ best car award was Steve Hutty.
Deborah said: “We had fabulous cars on display, all with different values, and it was like a mini Goodwood.
“The main beneficiaries will be the Scouts and Guides, and Liphook Fire Service and the Peak Centre will also receive donations.”
There was also an array of other attractions for visitors to enjoy on the day, including a real ale pavilion, burgers cooked by the Scouts and Guides, live music from local band Let The Good Times Roll, and vintage fairground rides from Hollycombe Working Steam Museum.
And Deborah paid tribute to everyone who helped make this year’s 30th event such a success.
She added: “I would like to thank our sponsors, Clarke Gammon Wellers, as well as Altis Tool Hire, the General Wine Company, Liphook Golf Club and the other businesses that supported us.
“I would also like to mention my chef and staff, who I am very proud of.”
