Other attractions on the day included a tombola, cake stall, food outlets and a clown who did balloons for children.

Rotarian Ian Neale said: “It was a good day and we had 55 classic cars. There was a lovely atmosphere in the Market Place.

“We took plenty of money in our collection buckets and sold lots of raffle tickets.

“This was the first time we held the event in the Market Place as opposed to Play Close. Rotarians and I felt it was much better, more compact and more visible to people.”
