BOSTON’S Classic Car Club will be celebrating its 21st birthday at its annual show next Sunday (August 14).

The group, which has run since 1990, will be holding the 19th Annual Classic Car Show at Graves Park, in Kirton, from 11am-4.30pm.

It will feature almost 500 classic cars ranging from T-Fords to Ferrarris along with around 60 trade stands and a children’s play area.

Chairman John Simpson said: “It looks like this is going to be our biggest event yet.”

On the club, he said: “It’s pretty amazing, we started with half a dozen and it’s grown to a membership of more than 250 and we’re still going strong and keep getting more members.”

There will also be a charity raffle in aid of The Butterfly Hospice and the RSPCA East Winch.

The club was first formed in 1990 when John placed an advert for an open meeting of classic car enthusiasts in The Standard.

Several like-minded people went along and the club was formed.

Initially meeting at the Hammer and Pincers, in Swineshead Road, Boston, the club soon outgrew it.

After several moves the group ended up at Graves Park Social Club, where members now meet on every third Tuesday of the month.

Admission is £3 for adults (accompanied children go free)

There will be limited disabled parking on site and car park nearby.

The club has plans to hold a party for its members in October.

The club’s magazine editor Jane Web is looking for old photographs of classic cars and street scenes in the Boston area to put on display at future events.
