MyLadysmith.com spent the day checking out British cars, trucks and motorcycles from all over BC and beyond on Transfer Beach, Ladysmith on July 14th, 2019 .
Over 250 vehicles were exhibited in the beautiful surroundings of Transfer Beach accompanied by a background of sixties music. “Brits on the Beach” is an annual show, organised by the Central Island Branch of the Old English Car Club of BC, a group of enthusiasts who spend many hours restoring and maintaining these wonderful vehicles.
Participants brought their vehicles from the North island, South island, all over the mainland, Washington State, and sometimes even farther! We enjoyed seeing the cars and talking to the owners to find out more about the cars and there fascinating history. There was a food concession at the show, courtesy of the Ladysmith Lions Club.
The OECC acknowledged the Town of Ladysmith for their cooperation in helping the club stage this event. Sponsors included 49th Parallel Grocery store, Ladysmith Credit Union & Pro Print printing & copying.
Everyone is welcome and the best bit, there is no charge for displaying a vehicle or visiting the display. Jim Stewart of the Old English Car Club of BC said “will be collecting for Ladysmith Food Bank and you can make a cash donation (most display entrants give $10 or more while visitors can drop a ‘toonie’ in the bucket) or a food donation at the front gate.
