OFFICIAL STATEMENT

 

                                                                           Released – Friday 16th November 2018

 

 

Firstly from all the organising team we would like to thank the support of the local enthusiasts, dealers, traders and visitors who have supported Cars on the Green & The Bury Motor Show over the past years.

 

The event has raised money over the years for St Nicholas Hospice, East Anglian Children’s Hospice, The Rainbow Ward, Riding for the Disabled, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Help for Heroes, 301 Sgn Air cadets, The Bungalow and many more. Providing equipment and much needed funding.

 

It is with a heavy heart we are issuing this statement to announce that Cars on the Green & The Bury Motor Show will not be held in 2019.

The event takes a huge amount of organising in the year leading up to the event and a massive amount of stewards and officials to ensure a safe enjoyable event. As many are aware the team behind the event comprises of very few, and mainly all with regular jobs too. The event has now grown to a size through its own success, that it requires additional car parking facilities to be laid on in the form of Park & Ride, as well as huge amount of hired infrastructure and the requirement for more stewards.

 

The team are going to take a break from the event for 2019 with the potential to look at organising an event in the following year.

 

Once again many thanks for your continued support.

 

 

Dan Pearson

Event Manager

Cars on the Green & The Bury Motor Show 2018 held on Sunday 17th June was once again a successful event, seeing local dealerships showcasing their latest models alongside local enthusiasts in individual and club displays. As well as that we had Live entertainment from Alex Michalewski, Sarah Probert and The Mean Eyed Cats. 

The organising team would like to thank all those who attended as an exhibitor or a visitor and especially the small group of volunteers who made the event a great success.
