North Cotswolds Rotary Club held its second Cotswold Festival of Motoring on Sunday at the Cotswold School.

900 visitors enjoyed a day of varied activities and entertainment, including 180 very special vehicles, together with stars of TV and film from Motion Picture Motors.

Through the generosity of the principal sponsor, Brio Retirement Living, together with additional sponsorship from Cotswold Motor Group, the event raised £6500.

The money will be shared equally between Great Western Air Ambulance, Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, North Cotswolds Community Awareness, Endometriosis UK and The Cotswold School.

Winner of the People’s Concours competition was Chris Ball’s 1955 Jaguar D Type which he currently races historic events.

In the judged competition the winners were: Pre-War – Allan and Sue Glew’s 1920 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost; Post-War – Martin Bridges’ highly original 1984 Ford Granada Scorpio; and Sports/Specials – John Hallam’s 1972 Sunbeam Rally Imp.

During the day visitors were treated to live music from the highly talented band - Paige and the Red Shift.

Younger family members had a chance to test their skills on a climbing wall kindly sponsored by JWORX, and there was an inflatable obstacle course for smaller children.

Delicious street food from Just Thais and Street Pizza was also on offer.

“I am absolutely delighted with how the day has gone”, said event organiser John Barber.

“It was a great family day and the feedback has been amazing.

"To have fun and raise money for these worthy causes at the same time has been a privilege.”

John thanked all the volunteers, and The Cotswold School for their unstinting support in allowing their grounds to be used for this event.

“We would not have been able to stage an event on this scale without significant support from Brio Retirement Living, to whom we are especially grateful.”
