Hopes that the fourth annual Spirit of Dacorum car tour would pass through Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town have been dashed as the road will not be suitable for the vintage vehicles in time.

Though the news is a disappointment for regeneration bosses at Dacorum Borough Council who hoped to use the charity event as a showcase for the almost-finished High Street works, organisers Dacorum Community Trust had not yet advertised the route.

A relaunch event for the Old Town is in the planning for the summer, though details of whatit will entail have not been confirmed.

There is still time for classic car owners to take part in this year’s tour, which acts as the Trust’s primary fundraising event, on Sunday, May 4.

Cars will set off from Apsley’s Shendish Manor, The Red Lion in Water End, Aubrey Park Hotel in Redbourn and Tring’s Pendley Manor. Email admin@dctrust.org.uk or call 01442 231396 to register.
