People in their hundreds headed to the community centre recreation grounds for the first of two classic vehicle shows held in the village.

Geoffrey Harper, one of the organisers, said: “There were a good variety of vehicles including motorbikes and scooters.

“The immaculate restored condition of the vehicles drew much admiration from all onlookers. Chrome and polish sparkled in the glorious sunshine.”

Bramblebee Farm, based in Emneth, provided a BBQ, kitchen and bar refreshments throughout the day.

Mr Harper added: “I would like to give special thanks to the Bluebells Inn Car Club, Anglia MGF, MG Rover Herts, Beds and Essex Owners.

“Some older females shared a private memory with amusement and a chuckle, remarking that a few of the cars reminded them of old boyfriends and Fenland Old Skool Ford Car Clubs.”
