Polegrove Show 10th Anniversary - August Bank Holiday Monday

Bexhill Classic & Custom Car Show 2014

Our 10th annual show on August Bank Holiday 25th Monday. Went ahead despite the awful weather, it rained all day not stopping at all. The weather news reported that we had approximately 38mm of rain equalling London. The marshals and the rest of the team were at the show ground by 07:00 and all awaited with bated breath to see if the rain would stop and how many people and cars turned up. The last count the total number of cars the turned out was 151 considering the rain we thought that was amazing. A few trade stands also turned up, more hot food then anything else which was very much needed. The show opened at 11:00 by Mrs Robin Adams (BARC  ladies champion in 1969) who was driven into the arena in a Ford Cosworth RS Sierra by Paul Brailsford. She was due to arrive in an open top Elva Courier but it was decided a hard top car was more conducive considering the weather. I think that approximately 100 members of the public braved the conditions, there was no charge. By 12:00 cars started to make there way home.  The Mayor of Bexhill-on-Sea  Cllr. Brain Kentfield attended the show at 13:00 and stayed for the entertainment.  The entertainment was severely disrupted but both Caroviolina and The Swing Thing entertained the crowd that had assembled in the main marquee which was appreciated by the remaining people. The Noodle Bar gave away there food rather than through it away, which was very welcome. The show closed around 16:00 as the rain continued to fall and most of the cars had gone home. The thought was despite the weather we had to laugh or we would have cried, and we “Carried on Regardless”. My we take this opportunity to thank all the many helpers who helped to put on the show, especially the scouts who spent the weekend camping on the Polegrove. Please view the few photographs below, as your will appreciate not that many. We hope that next years weather will be better it couldn’t be any worse.
