Raising the Roof Rally & Country Fair
We are now taking advanced booking for entrants to our second annual Raising the Roof Rally. With the success of the format in 2010, all vehicles taking place will be eligible for judging by the public and fellow entrants for the Pride of Woodford cup. This is not a concourse judging event; as John Griff of BBC Radio Northampton pointed out we are looking for the vehicle "that best wears the patina of affection".
In 2010 we raised a massive £3,770.68 to help fund repairs to the roof of the parish church. This year the event, which will be held on Saturday 2nd July 2011, is to raise funds to repair the organ that suffered severe water damage when the lead was stolen from the roof in 2009. Vehicles are to arrive on the rally ground between 11.00am and 1.00pm and refreshments will be available throughout the day, including fare from our almost famous BBQ!
We are expecting entries from classic cars, modern classics, kit cars, motorbikes, tractors and farm machinery, commercial vehicles and military vehicles. Enthusiast clubs are most welcome and space will be allocated for club stands, banners, tents, etc. as required at no additional charge.
Photovoltaic (solar) panel specialists EOS Energy and CarEnquiry.co.uk are sponsoring this years show, which is to held in West Farndon, almost halfway between Banbury and Daventry, situated near the A361. It is a traditional country fair with live music, food, a licensed bar and a wide range of attractions for all ages.
