Steam engine enthusiasts alighted at a pub in Bassingbourn at the weekend for their annual steam fair spectacular.

Steam at The Hoops is in its fourth year, and landlord Russell Wollaston said it was their most successful event to date.

“It went very well,” Russell said. “We were very fortunate with the good weather and we were at full capacity.”

There was also a bouncy castle, a disco and a raffle and auction with proceeds going to Bassingbourn pensioners.

The rally was such a hit that the wheels are already in motion for the fifth fair in 12 months time.
