ALL roads will lead to Loanends Presbyterian Church near Antrim on Saturday, June 4, for its vintage road run and Platinum Jubilee fete.
The event, generously sponsored by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council,
Ashdale Farm, Donald McConnell and Co Ltd, solicitors, Erwin Agri-Care, Firmount Veterinary Clinic, and GNG Credit Ltd, commences at noon.
Organisers are extending a warm welcome and encouraging vintage enthusiasts to bring along their tractors, classic cars, motorcycles and stationary engines.
The vintage road run, now in its 11th year, will take place in memory of Robert Wallace, who was actively involved in organising the vintage event on an annual basis.
Drivers are asked to assemble in the field adjacent to the church car park, on the Seven Mile Straight, near Nutt’s Corner, BT29 4YW, at noon for registration and a barbecue lunch. The entry fee is £15 per vehicle, which includes lunch for the driver.
The vintage cavalcade will set off at 1pm, and follow a planned route on roads around Carmavy, through Ashdale Farm, and then to the Aldergove, Ballyrobin and Ballysculty areas, before returning to Loanends.
Car drivers and motorcycle riders will follow a separate route. The summer fete, which coincides with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, promises to be a fun-filled day for all ages.
Proceeds from the vintage road run and summer fete will be donated to church funds and Rural Support.
