         Classics in the Walled Garden Wednesday 6th July 2011 From 4pm

 

Hello all,

 

Classics in the Walled Garden

 

Iím pleased to advise you all that the 3rd Classics in the Walled Garden will be held on Wednesday the 6th July. Last years event attracted around 650 cars and raised just over £3,000 for charity/good causes.

 

Classics in the Walled Garden is an evening picnic within and around the historic Walled Garden on the Luton Hoo Estate. As in 2010 a part of the Walled Garden has been taken by a semi-permanent marquee. I shall be allocating spaces as entries are received, the first 150 entrants will be inside the Walled Garden, the next 150 in the area immediately outside the Walled Garden with the remaining places in the paddock field nearby. In 2010 I received 88 entries within 48 hours of sending this email, so please donít delay.

 

The event is aimed at cars and motorcycles aged 20 years and older, with more modern classics accepted at my discretion. There will be parking available, outside the Walled Garden on payment, on the night for spectators and classics which havenít booked.

 

On the night we will have some music, a licensed bar, and some catering facilities. I will update all entrants with an email nearer the time. Iím only sending paper entries for this event to those few entrants who attended last year and for whom I have no email addresses. So if you have friends without email who may be interested please pass this on to them.

 

Luton Hoo Walled Garden is set in a beautiful estate with entry from the New Mill End Road along a lovely tree lined drive. You can read some of its history at; www.lutonhooestate.co.uk. Please note there is NO entry to the Walled Garden from the main entrance to the hotel & golf club on the A1081. An access map can be found on the website. Access to the estate is gated and will be closed during the day. There will be NO ENTRY to the estate before 4pm.

 

Proceeds from Classics in the Walled Garden will be divided between The Walled Garden Project, Help for Heroes and the Jumbulance Trust, www.jumbulance.org.uk

This year I will again be accepting payment of rally fees via Paypal for those of you who prefer to pay that way. Simply email me your completed form and make a payment to my email address. Please use Classics in the Walled Garden as the reference and include your registration number. I will provide the envelope and stamp to send your pass out. There will be an additional fee of 75p to cover Paypal fees, postage and envelopes.

 

Iím always in need marshalls so if you can spare a couple of hours of your time on the day please let me know. Iím tremendously indebted to all of you who have helped over the years as without that support these events simply couldnít take place.

 

As in 2010 Iím planning on a tombola to raise extra funds, if you work for a company that might be interested in donating some product or merchandise please get in touch.
