The team enjoyed another successful day out at East Barnet Festival on Sunday, the second time we’d attended this event.
It was a delight and a relief to see that Summer had decided to grace us with its presence for the day and the crowds correspondingly came out in volumes.
The festival site was large with a car show of 200+ classic vehicles at one end and a funfair at the other and us conveniently placed in the main thoroughfare between the two with the added bonus of the food stalls in our row.
The festival opened at midday and we were quickly involved in several conversations.
Being on the Herts border, many Hertfordshire masons greeted us and stopped to chat.
One 85-year old brother had just finished a six-year restoration on the oldest car being exhibited, a 1931 Riley, and it was truly a lovely restoration. We gave out a good amount of information and captured details of a number of people who were interested in joining.
Amongst the visitors were the Deputy Mayoress, Tara Khatri, and Deputy Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Sury Khatri, with whom we engaged in a long and pleasant conversation.
Thanks go to the team of ambassadors and towers for the day who were: Rupesh Valji, Nick Grossman, Shreyesh Shah, Hasu Joshi, Mike Bishop and Carl French.
