Pictures: The Minis take North Devon by storm

Joseph Bulmer

The little cars with the big hearts return for their annual Grand Tour and fund raising effort for Children’s Hospice South West

THOMAS the Tank Engine led the charge as an endless column of lively and noisy little Minis toured the region for the Legendary North Devon Grand Tour 2011 and to raise money for Children’s Hospice South West.

Travelling from as far afield as Scotland and decorated with everything from tassels to inflatable dinosaurs, they came to join the North Devon Mini Register event from Saturday to Monday, touring the whole region and tooting their novelty horns as they went.
