Summer Fete, Red House Care Home, Ramsey
The Red House care home in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire are putting on a summer fete with an aim to raise money for the residents for special outings and fun things to do to improve their lives. Each year we look to have something nice there of interest to the residents and visitors. This year I am hoping to have some classic cars or motorcycles attend as we have a couple of residents who were classic car owners themselves.

Would any of your members would like to bring their classic cars down to show off and let people look round for a couple of hours. The fete is on Saturday 15th July from 2:30pm - 4:30pm.
