Classic cars still turn out for annual village show in Barrington despite no event organiser

The weather wasn’t the only obstacle at the New Year’s Day classic car meet in Barrington at the weekend as it also went ahead without an organiser – but was still deemed a success.
The show, on the village green opposite the Royal Oak pub, ran under the stewardship of Monty Goding for more than 40 years, but no one came forward to volunteer when he stepped down last year and it was feared it would be the end of the road.
However, much to the delight of the pub and classic car enthusiasts from North Herts and South Cambs, it didn’t stop people meeting up this year.
Royal Oak’s Laura Kahlbaum said: “Even though it doesn’t have an organiser anymore we still have lots of people asking about it, and there were lots of cars turning up on Sunday.”
Cars included an Austin 7, a 1932 Armstrong Sideley, an MG. Magnette, and Cambs-based Mick Sayers even took along a refurbished 1950s Hudson Autocycle.

“The meet ups are still carrying on through word-of-mouth at the moment, and will start up again in April.” Laura added.
