Swap Meet grows

The annual Grafton Vintage Motor Vehicle Club – Maclean Swap Meet was held on Sunday at the Maclean Showground.

Around 57 cars were on display at this year’s event with the inclusion of three tractors; a first, for the swap meet.

Organisers said that the event is getting bigger each year with more cars and more stalls, to peruse.

The annual event was originally kicked off by Maclean locals Michael and Wendy Hardman and in 2013 it was taken over by Bob Gray, after the Hardman’s left town.

Bob said that over the last few years the event has grown, due to the hard work which has been put into running the event, by the members of the club.

“Each year the club makes a donation from the proceeds of the event, to the Maclean-Lower Clarence Hospital Auxiliary,” Bob said.

“They do a fantastic job for the community.

“We’d also like to thank the Maclean Lions Club and Shannons Insurance, for their support,” he said.
