Classic Car Show to take place on July 9th

A Classic Car Show takes place in Waterford this weekend.

The free event on July 9th will showcase cars, vans, motorcycles, scooters, and farm machinery from 10:30am.

It aims to give the public insight into the process of restoring a vintage car. This year will be the first that vintage tractors will be included in the showcase.

The vehicles on display will be a celebration of the work completed by people who participated in the WWETB Classic Car Restoration Course, or the Agricultural Mechanics Apprenticeship.
