More than 1,000 classic car owners showed off their wheels this week in Rickmansworth.

A fleet of classics from all over the south of England came to Croxley Green on Wednesday (August 7) to celebrate the Watford and District Classic Vehicle Club’s annual ‘Cars on the Green event’.

It was a fitting tribute to the club, which this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.

Over the 25 years, more than £80,000 has been raised for local and national charities.

President of the club Peter Watson said: “We couldn’t do it without the volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure that our shows go from strength to strength.”

“There is no entry charge to the show, we just ask people for donations and we charge a fee to stallholders.

“The money from both is then given to the charities. We are still counting the donations, but several thousand pounds will be on its way.”

The club’s show is now the biggest “midweek” event in the south East and is organised by just 10 people.

Peter Moss, a committee member who helped organise the event, said: “We got a lot of compliments about how the show was run and how much people had enjoyed it.”

“We are always worried about ‘boy racers’ spoiling an event like this, especially after what happened in Stevenage recently but everyone behaved impeccably.

“We are also extremely grateful to the officers from Hertfordshire Constabulary who attended the event and helped us make it highly successful and safe.”
