Preparation underway for CarFest
PREPARATION is underway for the second CarFest South at Laverstoke Park Farm near Overton this weekend.
The sold-out three-day festival, which begins today, is organised by Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans and combines food, music and cars. It is expected to raise £750,000 for the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.
Clare Scheckter, who owns Laverstoke with her husband Jody, said much preparation by volunteers and partner businesses had gone into the food. She said: “My hat goes off to the crew who have taken on the weighing out and bagging of 1,300 bags of flour for bread making for example.”
Mr Scheckter, a former Formula One champion, said: “If we could just guarantee some sunshine for the bank holiday weekend, it would take more of the pressure off.”
