Middlewich Classic Car and Bike Show postponed to September
THE Middlewich Classic Car and Bike Show has been postponed.
This annual charity event which draws thousands of visitors was scheduled to take place at Harbutts Field on King Street on July 18-19.
A new date in mid-September will be announced next month.
Stephen Dent, one of the organizers, said: “The increase in Covid cases in Cheshire East meant that all visitors, cars and bikes had to be pre-registered. We should have arranged for tracking and traceability.
âThe number of people on the ground and other requests would be so small that it wouldn’t work.
“Our show is an event that is just presented and enjoyed and people love the freedom that other bigger events cannot offer.”
A Dakota flyby had been arranged for Saturday and it was hoped that the Red Arrows would come as well, although the RAF demonstration team only confirms the earlier date.
Three community groups and volunteers joined together to coordinate the show, which in the past was run by Middlewich City Council for around 15 years.
Beartown Classic Car Club is the main sponsor with the support of the M6 ââJunction 16 Motoring Club and members of the Vintage Japanese Motorcycle Club.

The show will raise funds for three charities, North West Air Ambulance, Prostate Cancer and Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.
The St Luke’s Hospice Charity Bus will be on site alongside various charity stands.
Volunteers from Rotary, Roundtable and Freemasons kindly offered to help.
âThis will be a great volunteer event well coordinated with local organizations,â said Stephen, an avid vintage car enthusiast who owns four vintage vehicles.
âWe have sponsorship from various companies. The show raises funds for all kinds of charities.
“Everything is in place, we only need a date that we will announce in mid-July.”
