Icecream Sundae - Classic Car Funday at Apley Farm Shop

11th July 2014

On Sunday 20 July, the Icecream Sundae and Classic Car Funday at Apley Farn Shop, near Bridgnorth, will have a display of classic cars including an MGB Roadster, 1983 Panther Kallista, Rover P6 3500 and a yellow Lotus, fresh off the tracks with 1st and 2nd some recent racing prizes.

Car enthusiast, Graeme Manton, land agent to the Apley Estate explained: “We have a few cars which my daughter & I race whenever we can. We were pleased our Lotus was so well placed in 2 recent races & always enjoy displaying it at shows.”

As well as the classic car display, there will be a juke box, Summer drinks, local Hobsons’ Shropshire beers & a barbecue. The children will be easily amused with the fairground games, a bouncy castle, trailer & donkey rides, face painting & a Punch & Judy show.

Especially for the day, in Elizabeth Beckett’s Skincare shop in the courtyard, Jonquil Keen will be offering 10 minute hand & arm massages.

“Icecream & donkeys are two ingredients of a traditional seaside holiday which we wanted to bring to Shropshire, particularly for those who can’t get to the beach this Summer,” explained Apley Farm Shop marketing manager Lady Harriet Hamilton. “We’re also inviting shoppers to bring their baskets, fill them with Apley Farm Shop picnic ingredients & take round the Skylark Nature Trail.”

Especially for the day, two Shropshire icecream suppliers will be offering free tasters of their farm-produced icecreams, as well as selling tubs & cones. Visitors can even have a go at creating their own icecream flavour.

Bennett’s Farm of Worcester & Churchfield’s Farmhouse of Droitwich will be present on the day, 10-4pm. Visitors can choose from a variety of sauces to go with their ice-creams, plus different toppings.

“It’s a lovely way to start the Summer holidays on a Sunday afternoon – with icecream, fun activities for the children & interesting cars to admire in the beautiful Shropshire countryside which surrounds our Farm Shop” added Lord Gavin Hamilton, who’ll be judging the cars.
