Members of Vancouver Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada will be showing their collector and antique cars at the London Heritage Farm for the first time on Sunday, June 29, 2014 from 12 to 3 pm. In this event, participating members will enjoy their Annual Strawberry Tea at the Tea Room and the opportunity to stroll around the Farmhouse and the Grounds.  They will also be pleased to show their cars and discuss about the features with the visiting public.

Majority of the cars on show will be from the 1950′s and 1960′s with some from both earlier and later periods.  Very much depending on the weather, there is a possibility some of the pre-1930 “open” cars will be driven to and displayed at the show.

The Vancouver Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada has a membership of about 200, a few of whom have been in the club almost since its inauguration in 1957 and many have been members for more than 40 years.

The photos below show the type of cars that are typically brought to shows by the members.

Greeted by Doors Open Richmond Ambassadors in orange T-shirts and music by the piper, hundreds of guests and visitors joined the Opening Celebration of Doors Open Richmond in the beautiful evening of Friday, June 6, 2014 at London Heritage Farm.  Around 7:15 pm, Mayor Brodie declared the official opening of the 2-days city-wide celebration of Doors Open Richmond.  After a short welcome message by Bruce Livingston, President of London Heritage Farm Society, guests and visitors started to enjoy the live show of the Morris Dancers and Jazz Quartet in the South Lawn and Gazebo and strolled around the beautiful Heritage Garden.  Apart from crafting and seed planting, kids had a chance to experience the life of Richmond’s pioneers by trying out to use some of the old household and kitchen tools dating back to the 1890′s.  Many families also enjoyed a picnic on the lawn with free BBQ’s and drinks generously provided by the sponsors of this event.

Joining over 40 sites in Richmond, London Heritage Farm will be open on the weekend of June 7 and 8, from 10 am to 5 pm, to participate in the FREE Doors Open for tours.
