A POPULAR classic vehicles show returned to Holywell at the weekend.

The Classic Car, Tractor and Bike Show, which was free to attend, attracted a great turnout, organisers said.

It is part of the Holywell Town Centre Events programme, which was started a few years ago by members of the town’s partnership as a key initiative to help regenerate the High Street and attract more people to the town centre.

There was a range of vehicles on show, including numerous classic cars, vintage tractors and bikes.

Clubs such as the Clwyd Practical Classics Society were represented, along with other individuals and groups who came along to show off their classic vehicles.

Members of the Rotary Club of Flint and Holywell played a key role in helping the Saturday event take place this year, in addition to support from Flintshire Council and Holywell Town Council.

Flintshire Vintage and Classic Tractor Society members were represented by members, including Julia Hodgson.

She said: “It went really well. We ran a bit of a competition for the children to find the best tractor.

“We were particularly surprised and pleased that 115 of them entered, with the Massey 165 being given the award.

“Overall the event was a big success with plenty of people there.

“The weather wasn’t very kind but it was reasonable and there was a good turnout.

“It was pleasing to see how many children were there, enjoying being on the tractors. It was something educational and fun for them to do during the holidays.”
