Our 25th annual London to Southend Classic Vehicle Run was a show stopper. The sun had shone for us all day long.
Leaving at nine o’clock in the morning, from Fairlop Waters in Hainault, under the direction of the starting flag of the Mayor of Redbridge, the first vehicle to leave was Buttercup the club Morris Minor Van. Other classic vehicles set off on a leisurely 50 mile run through the sleepy towns and villages of Essex, concluding at Southend-On-Sea’s wonderful City Beach area.
Assembling along the seafront, near the dancing fountains, together with more classic vehicles, provided a magnificent static display of vehicles from the 1930s right through to the 1980.
Every entrant was presented with a Participant Rally Plate in Silver to celebrate this 25 year run, a ‘goodie bag’ and a Commemorative Silver Plaque to celebrate the event.
Entertainment on the city Beach, was provided from 10am right through to 4.30pm by our DJ & master of ceremonies Peter May, from ‘Flippin Mental’. We also had 4 Storm Troopers (Star Wars) members of UK Garrison.
Well done to all who took part to make this a very special event.
