Enthusiasts and staff at the village’s Royal Oak pub rallied together to put together the latest event now lockdown restrictions have eased and eager spectators were treated to an exciting range of offerings.

They included a 1928 Sunbeam Limousine, Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 11, a Morris 1000 Traveller, Land Rovers, and numerous top-of-the-range sports cars.

Excited owners from the South Cambs villages and beyond turned out – including Emily Cook from Bassingbourn.

She exhibited her immaculate, newly acquired 1959 Hillman Minx series 111, which has been added to the family fleet of other interesting classic models.
