Bodle Street Green Village Hall Contributor


Bodle Street Green saw over 350 vehicles of all types come to this little
village in East Sussex on Sunday April 21 for the FBHVC 'Drive It Day' where
they were made welcome by Peter Love and his helpers. Besides vintage and
classic cars, motor-cycles, commercial vehicles, military, steam cars, road
steamers, stationary engines and agricultural displays. The event saw 72
antique tractors and some Model T Fords take part in the 17 mile road run
around the area ranging in ages from 1913-1992. People came with vehicles to
the event from as far afield as Hampshire, Surrey, Sussex, Kent and the
Boroughs of London and were all given a free refreshment and cake voucher
for making the effort for coming. Inside the village hall was some seven
model railway layouts, which were very popular with the many that came.
While refreshments was served by two hard working village hall ladies,
outside The Cabin provided breakfast baps and lunch rolls, if you needed a
drink then The White Horse was the place across the road.

With the well known David Vaughan on the PA and the host joining in people
knew what was going on all the time. Peter Love said he was delighted to
stage the event again, but under some stress at the same time with work
schedules as they are. But it could not have happened without my many
friends from all over the place who have come here to marshal in various
aspects and to keep this tight site free rolling when the event was on and
connected to the road run. He gave praise to the ladies who booked everyone
in and sorted the raffle out. From the day some £1,600 was raised. Asked if
he was set to do another one in 2025, yes people looked happy and we will go
again God willing, but as always developing the day further. If you would
like to volunteer to help please do get in touch, 01323 833125.
