The Parson Drove Car Bike & Trike show returned over the weekend for its ‘most successful show to date’.
The show, now in its ninth year, raised a further £9,000 for Magpas and other local charities – taking the fundraising total to £32,000 since the show started.
This year’s event saw 263 vehicles – custom and classic cars, bikes and trikes - enter the publicly judged Show and Shine competition on Sunday.
Among the 14 trophy classes, Mr A Smith was awarded Best Classic Car for his 1968 Cadillac and Nevil Sale won Best Custom Bike with his 2011 Victory.
Roger Reader, team leader of the Parson Drove Car Bike & Trike show, said this year’s show was absolutely brilliant.
