Ley Hill Bucks, Village Green Classic Car Gathering

Having had a great day yesterday at Silverstone, Sunday 11th is the Ley Hill Village Green Car show. 
The show is officially open from 12 to 4pm but the popularity of this event in its 5th year requires securing a position early. I got there at 10.45 and already cars were assembling around the Cricket Pitch, sandwiched between the Golf Course and the two pubs. 

The show is organised by the village people for the village and it chosen charity, being the Air Ambulance this year. All around Gazebos are being erected for the sale of Teas and Cakes, and this year  the Golf Club had its own Beer & Pimms tent. The Cricket Pavilion Bar is open as well. 

 Cream Teas and Cakes were going very well. 

 Families and Friends gather over a tea or a pint of ale.

Local Ladies collect donations in their giant buckets.

I spent my first 20 minutes holding a leg of the Beer Tent as a sudden wind tried to lift it high and take it away. The Green Goddess (Background Left) was parked in the shade, when I arrived, sheltering from the Golf Tee behind a thick hedge. I could not believe it when the owner of the Citroen next to me said that it was built in Slough Bucks, only a few miles from here.

The variety of cars on show are far to numerous to mention by name so I will show them here as they were positioned when I took their photos.
