Classic Cars Bring A Blast From The Past At Bembridge Care Home

Residents, staff and visitors at The Elms Care Home in Bembridge enjoyed a nostalgic journey back in time.

On Tuesday (17th August), they were visited by Vectis Historic Vehicle Club members and their classic cars who took over the care home’s car park in Swains Road for the afternoon.

The visit was arranged in exchange for a piece of cake or cream tea for all the car owners and a donation to Mountbatten Isle of Wight.

Lesley Wise, manager of The Elms, said: “Everybody absolutely loved having a look around the beautiful classic cars and chatting to their owners. For many of us, it felt like stepping back in time.”

Peter Hodgson from Vectis Historic Vehicle Club said: “We all were made very welcome and were so glad the residents enjoyed some nostalgia of cars of yesteryear.”

The afternoon was such a success, The Elms has asked Vectis Historic Vehicle Club to make this show an annual outing, a suggestion which has been readily accepted.
