Cars and Coffee returns this Sunday:
Cars and Coffee ( C&C) is a global concept which sees motoring enthusiasts meet up at a central location to chat, network and show off their pride and joy whilst enabling the public to get a look at vintage, classic, sports and super cars. The organises Dave Brown and Lisa Binfield say that “you don’t need to be in a select member’s club or drive a particular car. It’s all about the social aspect”
Dave and Lisa initially met at primary school in Chester but lost touch as they grew up. They were delighted to encounter each other 30 years later at The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power where they were both fundraising for charity with the Sporting Bears Motor Club.
The inaugural event took place last year, with the backing of Cheshire West and Chester who offered the Crown Court parking area as a perfect backdrop.
“The first event in September last year exceeded all our expectations and we’ve put a lot more work into promoting the 2016 schedule”. There are 8 dates scheduled for this year after a winter break. The previous event in March was a big success says Dave.
“We had 69 cars & probably another 100 people who came to watch/take pics. Cars ranging from pre war classics to £300,000 supercars from Ferrari & McLaren and all points in-inbetween, most definitely something for everyone to see and proof that it doesn’t matter what you drive or ride you’ll be more than welcome to attend.People came from Chester & surrounding area but as far afield as Lancaster and Telford.
‘We’ll have a coffee and bacon butty wagon on site for refreshments. Our new caterer is Dave from Blacon and we look forward to seeing anyone with an interesting car or who simply wants to come along and see the cars parked up.’
Dave is delighted to welcome Deva Tuk Tuk back to the event. “We will be joined by Sue, Mel and the gang and the Tuk Tuk will be an eye catching addition”.
Cars and Coffee will take place on Sunday 24th April at 7.45am – 10:15am.
“If you don’t own a car you think isn’t worth showing don’t worry, because you’re not the only one. There are plenty of people who go to these events as onlookers, who come for the coffee, the cars, and the camaraderie.”
