The show on June 23rd 2013 went ahead as planned.  Sadly the weather prevented us having the hot air balloon rides and the paragliders we had hoped for, but it didn't stop the main attractions of all the cars.  There were over 250 vehicles on the field giving all our visitors lots to look at and enjoy.  

We must thank our main sponsors for the day.  Lakeland Ltd and Heart of the Lakes, holiday cottage company.  Without them the day could not have taken place.  The Grasmere Sports Committee must also be thanked for allowing us to use the field and for ensuring that it is kept in such wonderful condition.  Classic Car owners don't like their cars to get muddy and there's no real worry of that on this field. Anyone who thought about coming with their vehicle and was put off thinking it would be muddy should think again for next year.

Funds raised this year were split between the Great North Air Ambulance and the North West Air Ambulance.  They will each receive a cheque for 2000.00.  Thank you all for helping us raise this money.

Our very generous sponsors for this year were:
