Meet the team

It would be impossible to thank every volunteer individually as there are hundreds of them, however, we do have a core team steering the project

Steve Timewell

Project Lead

Just an ordinary local resident but I care about my community and the return of the parade has always been a dream of mine. Now it's time to turn it into a reality. My full time job is journalist and drone photographer. Once I start a project, nothing can stop me seeing it through. I am a firm believer in 'Love where you live'

Car show coordinator

I moved to Weston 10 years ago. Since then I've enjoyed being part of the community. I joined the local parish Council last year. This allows me to get out and about within my village and surrounding areas. My passions include classic cars, singing, playing guitar and photography
