Click on the video below to get a flavour of just what the Greetham Gathering is all about…
The Greetham Gathering is an informal meeting of owners and enthusiasts with interests of classic and vintage motorcycles, cars and other classic vehicles. It is held once a month on the third Thursday of May, June, July, August and September, in the grounds of Greetham Community Centre. The event is open from about 5:00pm until dusk. We shall use this website to keep you informed of each event and any relevant information that you may need, so please check back here before you come to the event. The dates of the 2018 Gatherings are:
17 May 21 June 19 July 16 August 20 September
We do ask that all attendees be mindful of the fact that the location is on the edge of a village, and that you keep your vehicle speed to within the legal limits as there are children here. Also, please refrain from making excessive noise when driving through the village as we want the residents to be supportive of the Gathering, and please do not park on the grass verges around the Gathering – we have ample parking on-site. To that end, we operate a one-way traffic flow system whereby you approach the venue from the centre of the village and proceed north up Great Lane. Under no circumstances can we allow vehicles to approach from the north side of Greetham down the gated section of Great Lane. Vehicles exiting the Gathering will be directed away from the village to keep disturbance in the village to a minimum. We know it may add a few minutes to your travel time, but we hope you understand the reasons. These travel requirements are a condition of us being allowed to hold the Gathering and thus keep our neighbours “on-side” with the event. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation on this.
All are welcome – with or without a classic or vintage vehicle! Come along and savor the relaxed setting and informal atmosphere. Relax and enjoy a drink (hot and cold!) and a bite.
On site we provide:
- Ample parking including disabled (we are currently charging just £1.00 per vehicle to enter). Motorcycles will be parked on tarmac, other vehicles on grass. Cars will be charged their parking fee at the gate; motorcyclists when they dismount. We like to segregate classic/vintage vehicles from more modern ones, so be prepared….
- A fully licensed bar will be open
- Hot food, cakes, teas, coffee and non-alcoholic beverages will also be available
All profits will be donated to the local Air Ambulance service and we have a raffle to further that cause. In November 2017 we made a £2200.00 donation to the local Air Ambulance from our 2017 Gatherings – details of that are in the “Previous Gatherings” section of this website. That is a 10% increase on the amount we were able to donate in 2016. Thank you so much for your support.
We look forward to seeing you at a 2018 Gathering…….
