A family fun day out is planned at the WWETB Waterford Training Centre this Saturday, July 8th (10 am to 1 pm) with a free showcase of Classic Cars, Bikes and Vintage Tractors along with visitors being able to gain an insight into the Classic Car Restoration Course works at the training centre on the day.

The show will be hosted by the course leaders at the Classic Car Restoration Course at the WWETB Waterford Training Centre. The showcase is a celebration of the works completed by the course participants who have taken part in either the Classic Car Restoration day course or the evening course over the last 20 weeks. The Classic Car Restoration Course was launched in 2016 at the Waterford Training Centre part of Waterford Wexford Education and Training Board (WWETB) and it is the only course of its kind in the entire country.

In addition, the team behind the Agricultural Mechanics Apprenticeship at WWETB are joining the event and will be showcasing a display of vintage tractors alongside up to 160 classic cars and motorbikes.
