THE Minis returned to North Devon in force over the bank holiday weekend as with much tooting and merriment they took to the streets for the Legendary Grand Tour.

The ‘little cars with the big hearts’ have been visiting the region now for 19 years, all with the aim of raising money for Children’s Hospice South West.

After a Saturday evening visit to the Big Sheep, dozens and dozens of Minis, most in full ‘costume’ just like their drivers, set off from Westward Ho! before touring through many towns and villages in Torridge.

Yesterday (Monday) they set off again, this time from, Bideford and made their way across North Devon, before ending the Grand Tour for another year in Ilfracombe.
