Head to the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Local business Motors and more on display supports local A great day’s entertainment is on order for the inaugural Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day. Hours of planning and work have gone into making this a great day out and there will be something for everyone in the family, especially motor enthusiasts. Covering 30 hectares, the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day will be a huge affair with hundreds of cars, trucks, motorcycles, motors, tractors, steam engines and interesting displays, as well as market and food stalls. The first of its kind for the district, this event has attracted considerable interest with over 200 show vehicles registered so far. Motor vehicles on display will range from a 1914 Model T to late model cars like a 2014 Corvette and 2017 Lotus 7. The Ellesmere Vintage Club, Vintage Speedway and RATEC Motorsport will be there, while the Canterbury Mustang Club are making this day an official club event. “The grounds look fantastic with the grass cut and baled for seating. There’ll be something for everyone with a great show of motor vehicles and wide variety of stalls and entertainment throughout
the day,” says Selwyn District Councillor Craig Watson who is on the organising committee. Craig says the event will be a fete with a motor focus, cool activities and displays. Local emergency services including St John ambulances; vintage and car clubs; rally cars; the New Zealand Trucking Association; the Selwyn District Council; Residents’ Association; Selwyn Parenting Network; and other community groups will be present. There will be plenty for the children too, with a Bunnings Warehouse construction display, bouncy castles, face painting, pony rides, steam engine rides and more. Thirty plus market stalls will offer something for everyone, from motoring paraphernalia to children’s clothing and Tupperware, with an additional 15 food stalls and four coffee vendors providing a range of cuisine. Relax and listen to the music of Shed 24 and Lee Martin after strolling around the exhibits and motors on display.

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
Supporting St John
When Nigel and Lisa Fleck heard about plans for a motor fest they were keen to get involved, leading to Jones Road Auto becoming major sponsor for the event. With a shared interest in cars and both Nigel and Lisa driving their own classic cars, the idea of holding a family oriented motor fest in Selwyn appealed, especially as it is a fundraiser for St John. “With it being a family event and fundraiser for such a good cause, it was important for us to be involved,” says Lisa who with Nigel own and operate Jones Road Auto and Selwyn Auto. “Participation in this event allows us to give something back to the community especially when St John helps so many people.” You will be able to chat to the team from Jones Road Auto and Selwyn Auto at the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day.
The Selwyn Central St John branch has responsibility for raising $150,000 towards their local operation. All money from the Jones Road Auto Selwyn Motor Fest and Family Fun Day will go to supporting the Leeston and Rolleston stations, ambulances and vital services offered by St John throughout a district that covers a considerable geographic area.
