Bexhill 100 Motoring Club will join forces with Bexhill’s Mayor, Cllr Lynn Langlands to help give the people of Bexhill a morale boost on August Bank Holiday Monday.
Lynn Langlands contacted the Club back in June to discuss a plan for their Bank Holiday event, which in its usual form would clearly not be allowed to go ahead. As an alternative, it was discussed how they might offer something to the residents of the town to help cheer people up and bring something to those who were still unsure about going out and being amongst large public groups.
Cllr Langlands said: ‘We came up with the Mayor’s Motoring Cavalcade, and planned for a few classic vehicles to parade all round Bexhill (to include Pebsham and Sidley) and enable folk to come and stand at the roadside near to their homes to view the parade. This was such a thoughtful and generous offer on behalf of the club to the community, as the time and energy they have put into this event has the potential to give enjoyment to many, and is free to enjoy.’
A variety of classic and custom cars will be driving around Bexhill streets between 12.00noon and 2.00pm. The route will leave at around 12.00noon and cover Terminus Road; Collington Avenue; Birkdale; Cooden Sea Road; Little Common Roundabout; and Peartree Lane. The convoy will then travel to Sidley (at around 12.30pm), via Turkey Road, travelling through Sidley via Ninfield Road to Buxton Drive, then Woodsgate Park into London Road as far as Wrestwood Road. Then visit Pebsham (at around 1.00pm) via Pebsham Lane; Long Avenue; Seabourne Road; Pebsham Community Centre; Haslam Crescent; Third Avenue and Hastings Road to De la Warr Road.
They will then head towards Bexhill Town Centre via Upper Sea Road (at around 1.30pm); Buckhurst Road past Town Hall Square, turning into Sackville Road then Western Road, Devonshire Road, Parkhurst Road rejoining Sackville Road then proceeding along Marina until the end of the route, at Bexhill’s Angling Club.
Chris Speck Chairman of Bexhill 100 Motoring Club expects to have around 50 cars joining the run and said: ‘This would have been the Club’s 16th Classic Car Show – each year the Club donates the profit from the shows to local charities. We were hoping to break the £100,000 mark this year, but we sadly had to cancel the show due to the Corona Virus outbreak. We wanted to give something back to the community during these difficult times. It would be great if people gave us a wave or a toot as we travel the route.’
