More than 60 classic cars and vehicles rolled up for a display to remember as Barrington Classic Show returned to the village.

The car show will be held on the first Friday of every month, with a fleet of fine classic vehicles parked on the green for people to marvel at and enjoy.

As well as regular visitors to Barrington, some more unusual newcomers were welcomed to the scene, supported by a good public turnout.

To celebrate his engagement, Darren Philips marked the milestone occasion by picking up a 1940 Chevrolet Master De Luxe, from Portsmouth – his first incursion into classic cars.
