There have been four evening classic car meets at the village club since May.

Owners of vintage vehicles parked up at the club and got to chat about their shared interests.

Redhill villagers and visitors were able to admire the cars on display, which have been crafted by the likes of Mercedes, Ford, and Triumph.

Dozens of cars dating as far back as the 1920s have been displayed at the classic car meets in Redhill throughout the summer, and people also got to enjoy a tasty barbecue at each event.
