Llanelli Retrofest 2014
Swansea Historic Vehicle Register
must be a name that is heard in high
places. First of all we were approached by Carmarthen Town Council
asking for a car show in their park. Now we were being contacted by the
Llanelli Chamber of Commerce wanting to know if we could provide
vehicles for a town centre display. The only problem being, there was not
a lot of time to do it and not a lot of space first time. Luckily SHVR is
made of stern stuff and rose to the challenge. Classic cars tout de suite?
Well no problem if anyone is available. A few ‘phone calls later and we
had enough cars promised to fulfil the brief.
The day started off a bit cool but the
weather improved as the day went
on. We even had to watch a BBC production being made early in the
morning with Alex Jones from the ‘One Show’ making a program on her
ancestry. Not that our lot minded watching her.
The organisers were very pleased with our
efforts on their behalf and are
looking to repeat the shows on a regular basis with our club. Watch this
space for more news.
