Hampton’s classics dazzle on return

Classic & Sports Car Logo By Jim Holder of Classic & Sports Car | Slide 1 of 18: The summer season of car shows is in full swing, from big ones like the Goodwood Festival of Speed through to more local affairs, such as Hampton Village’s Classics on the Green, on Sunday 18 July, now into its fifth year and back after a COVID-enforced pause in 2020. Like many such shows, the event, organised by the Hampton Village Traders Association and led by Jane and Nick Witham, the powers behind the local Jolly Coopers pub, is run on a voluntary basis and raises money for local charities. Inevitably, being a day before ‘Freedom Day’ and with social responsibility uppermost in mind, there were additional complications for the team of helpers than in previous years. For the hundreds of visitors though, it was a welcome distraction on a beautiful day, offering a happy dose of normality in this corner of south-west London, near C&SC’s HQ.
