Hira Hop

The first Hira Hop was held January 2022 and was the brain child of Deidre Prattley, the beloved Bar Manager at the Nelson North Country Club. Deidre was a classic car enthusiast and the proud owner of a 1956 Chev Belair.

With the help of Kevin Bannan and other members of the Nelson North Country Club, the event was put together in 6 weeks. It was a very successful event with classic cars coming from as far away as Christchurch.
