Vintage car open day at Bakewell care home

By 9th April, 2018 Press Releases No Comments

A VINTAGE motor show will take place at Burton Closes Hall Care Home in Bakewell.

Almost a dozen restored vehicles from the 1940s and 50s will be on display at the home from 1:30pm, on Monday 23rd April.

The show is in celebration of both National Care Home Open Day and The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs’ Drive It Day.

Among the cars will be an Austin 7, Ford Consul, Ford Prefect, Wolseley, Austin 10 and more.

Car show and festival commentator Dave Whittle will be the master of ceremonies and the vehicle owners will be on hand to answer questions.

Hazel Jones, home manager at Burton Closes Hall Care Home, on Haddon Road, said: “Our maintenance man Keith and his friends are all vintage car owners and we thought it would be a great idea to host a show on National Care Home Open Day and Drive It Day.

“Everyone is so excited to see the cars and hear all about them and how long they took to restore.

“What better place to show off vintage cars than the Grade II listed Burton Closes Hall, which was originally built in 1848 and is now operated as a care home.

“We will also have tea and coffee available inside the home for anyone who wants to have a look around, speak to any of our staff or residents.

“The show is completely free any everyone is welcome to attend.”
