The annual Claragh Bridge Vintage Show will be held on Saturday, July 30, from 11am.

This year’s show is sure to be one of the best days out for vintage vehicle enthusiasts and a great family fun day with Tiny Life being the main charity, other small charities in the area also benefit from this family fun day with something of interest for everyone.

Already this year £3,000 has been donated to Marie Curie Care from the tractor road run in May in memory of esteemed member William Patrick Burns who was one of the founder members of the club, when established in 2004.

The money was handed over to Marie Curie nurse Mrs Johanne King in Oasis, with refreshments provided by the Burns family for everyone, this was a mark of respect to WP Burns for all the good work over the years.

For those enthusiasts who like to see vintage tractors and cars there will be an impressive selection on show. The registration forms have been sent out, however if you have a vintage car or tractor and would like to enter the show, vehicles can be registered on the day at the registration office.

In the main hospitality marquee there will be various demonstrations from flower arranging to soda bread making. The craft village with various stalls is sure to work up an appetite and in the hospitality marquee there will be a selection of homemade stews, sandwiches and sweet treats.

For the children there is a free bouncy castle and slide supervised by professional staff provided by the owner of the equipment. There will also be face painting and a magic show all to make this an enjoyable day for the children.

Claragh Bridge Vintage Club looks forward to welcoming everyone on 30th July located on the B175 from Ballynahinch to Castlewellan beside Drumaroad.
