Coventry Home Invites Classic Car Club to Take Residents on a Trip Down Memory Lane

A Coventry home organised a visit for a classic car club to show some retro cars to residents.

MHA Charnwood House arranged for the Heart of England Classic Transport Club to visit the home for the second time and bought along with them some classic motors.

A car from 40’s.50’s.60’s.70’s and 80’s was part of the visit and included a Ford Sierra, Vauxhall Viva, Humber Scepter, a Triumph TR 6 and a Rover.

The home provides residential dementia care for 65 residents and has plenty of car enthusiasts living there, especially due to Coventry being a hub for car manufacturing in the past.

Victoria Brown, activity coordinator said:
“The Heart of England Classic Transport Club visited the home for the second time and just like before the residents had a great time.

“The residents really enjoy talking about cars and seeing some classic cars reminded them of the cars and the type of cars that were around during their younger years.

“Coventry had a booming car industry during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

“Most of our residents have some connection to the car industry, so it is important to keep ties with that where possible.

“We took the residents out to see the cars either in a group of two or on a 1 to 1 basis and it was lovely to see their enthusiasm.

“The cars were a real conversation starter, and the owners were very keen to share car stories.

“I am in regular contact with The Heart of England Classic Transport Club and hope to get them to visit again soon.
