Scores of Minis to cruise along Burnham-On-Sea seafront on Sunday

Scores of minis will be cruising along Burnham-On-Sea seafront and through Brean on Sunday afternoon (July 8th) during a fundraising event.

The vehicles will be taking part in a Charity Mini Show, being held at Brent Knoll's Sanders Garden World, in aid of Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

Phil Tyzack, Manager of the garden centre, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are looking forward to hosting the show, where people will be able to display their Minis and enter them to be judged in a 'show and shine' competition."

"After the event, drivers are being invited to participate in a Mini cruise, which will take drivers along the seafronts in Burnham, Brean and Weston-super-Mare, over to Cheddar and back to the garden centre."

The Charity Mini Show takes place at Sanders from 10am until 2.30pm. Gates will open at 9am, judging will take place at 12 noon and presentations will be held at 1.30pm. The Mini Cruise will leave the garden centre at approximately 2.30pm and will return at around 3.30pm.

There will be six categories to enter in the competition: best Mini pre 1970, best Mini between 1970 and 1990, best Mini post 1990s, best new Mini and best in show. Winners of each category will receive a small plaque or trophy and a motoring goodie. Owners will be asked to make a donation to the charity.

Scott Thomas, who runs Ford Focus specialists, The Focus Point based in Bristol and owns a Classic 1996 Mini Cooper, is organising and sponsoring the event, along with Dan Smith from DD’s Autoshine in Highbridge. Those interested in displaying a vehicle should call 077718 14342.
