Preparations for 2024 Begin in Earnest
Updated 17/01/2024

Following our recent AGM we are very pleased to say that we have the potential to make our move to our new venue at Boston Road Recreation Ground a real success, we very much welcome new faces to the organisational team who have a myriad of ideas and enthusiasm in equal amounts. We shall, no doubt have fun in exploring these attributes to the full in the coming weeks and months. We can now begin in earnest to provide our regular attendees and indeed newcomers with a show that is as good as, if not better than, those that have been enjoyed in previous years at Lafford Terrace. The potential for the new venue is fantastic, whilst providing new challenges for us in terms of the way in which we manage the logistics of the day, the opportunities are there for all to see. We will not, I am sure, get it right first time and we will actively seek feedback on the day and afterwards, to find out what you feel we did well and what we did less well One aspect of the show we are determined to retain is the friendly atmosphere and good humour that has become a big draw for entrants and visitors alike. If as in previous years, we as organisers enjoy the day as much as entrants, traders and visitors do, then we must be doing something right. Keep an eye on the latest news page for information in respect of the opening date for entries which should if all goes to plan be mid to late February. Giving you plenty of time to submit your entry and fettle your pride and joy ready for September. We very much look forward to seeing you this year.

All Change On The Personnel Front For 2024 Having said our farewells to our Treasurer, Christine, earlier this year due to personal commitments, unable to find a suitable replacement at short notice, the task was shared between our Chairwoman, Emma and Entries Secretary, Mary. Both of whom took this task forward seamlessly along with all of the numerous existing tasks required to ensure a successful event. Christine provided a first class service to the organisers over a significant number of years ensuring that our accounts balanced to the penny and we owe her a collective vote of thanks for her efforts. Together Emma and Mary continued in this vain for the 2023 show and in the finalisation of the years accounts, ready to move forward in to 2024 at the new venue. However, it is with a great deal of sadness that, as we head into a new era for the event, that we will no longer benefit from the experience and dedication of Emma and Mary, both of whom have, reluctantly, decided to step down from their respective roles on the organising committee. Emma and Mary have, over many years, been a fundamental driving force ensuring that the show has continued to grow and develop into the event we have come to regard as a key part of the town's annual event calendar. Both of them have left very big shoes to fill in taking the show forward however we will do our very best to maintain the quality, efficiency and friendliness that people have become accustomed to. A huge thank you to them both! As if loosing three long standing members of the committee in such a short space of time doesn't present enough challenges, we have also received notice from our Web Services provider that they are no longer able to provide us with Hosting and support for our existing website! Yet another challenge to face and new skills to learn! but as the old saying goes "every day is a school day". All of these changes do however present us with an ideal opportunity to review the way in which we do things. Can we become more efficient in how we communicate with people and streamline, for example our internal records, payments, and other processes without affecting our "small and friendly" reputation. We certainly hope so and we look forward to seeing friends, old and new, at the 2024 event. Posted 30th September 2023

2023 - Phew!! What a Great Show – What Great Weather too.

Well what a great day was had by all at this year’s event! The sun shone down on us throughout the day with a record turnout of vehicles and visitors alike. The entries consisted of an eclectic mix of vehicles from the quirky Bond Bug to the prestigious Bentley and Rolls Royce, from mopeds to superbikes and everything in-between. The range and mix of cars and motorcycles was the best we have seen in a long time. The Club Stands were bigger than ever and the friendly rivalry in competing for the “best club stand” trophy provided a new element of fun to the proceedings. As always, the response of those who came to admire the collection of vehicles on show was very positive and very much enjoyed by young and old alike. We should mention the ad hoc display of motorcycles, which, as always provides a great deal of interest, gathered on the area adjacent to the entrance of the show. There was a fantastic mix of machinery congregating here throughout the day many of which would have graced the more formal display just below them on the show site.  Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue and the Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bike Service displays provided  interactive displays and photo opportunities that were a big hit with the youngsters. The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire made another welcome return, resplendent in its D-Day colours set against the clear blue sky was an evocative sight and sound that was eagerly anticipated by the crowd. The most asked question of the day  “What time is the fly past due?” ​ Inevitably there was the “small issue” of judging the vehicles, club stands and traders to award the days trophies and after some deliberation by the committee’s chosen judges the following awards were presented to: Best Car in Show -                 Dan Redfern - 1986 Ford Capri 2.8 Injection Reserve Award  -                   Chris Ramamoorthy - 2002 Mercedes SLK 230 Kompressor Best Motorcycle in Show-    Stuart Gilbert - 1973 Garelli Tiger Cross 50cc Reserve Award -                    Glenn Barker - 1960 Norton ES2 Mrs Allen Cup -                      David Bolsover - 1921 Triumph H Ken Weeks Trophy                Mark Correia - 1966 VW Split Screen Transporter Best Trade Stand-                  Nick Smith Signs Best Club Stand -                   Boston Classic Car Club Well done to all of the trophy winners for the effort made in bringing these fine examples to our event. To view the winning entries and further images of the days events go to he Gallery Page  Looking ahead to the 2024 event which is scheduled for Saturday 7th September, we have taken the decision to relocate the show to the Boston Road Recreation Ground  (see map below). Whilst we have had the good fortune to have had many successful events at Lafford Terrace, the continued popularity of the event means that we have outgrown the space available to us at our current venue and this year in particular, we have had to restrict the number of vehicle entries and trade stands. Obviously we want as many people as possible to be able to enjoy our event with sufficient room to be able to display and view the vehicles in comfort and safety. Our new location will enable us to grow the event and make it even more special. ​ Whilst we are looking forward to the new venture, we must acknowledge the support of North Kesteven District Council, its elected members and officers , in allowing us to the facilities at Lafford Terrace, without their help and support the event could not have grown into the respected and successful event we are now able to provide for the enjoyment of so many people. We cannot thank them enough for all of their past help and support.
