A display of vintage cars and music from the 50s and 60s took residents on a trip back in time in Romford Market.

Havering Council hosted a large collection of cars from a community of enthusiasts, collectors and the Havering Classic Car Club (HCCC) from 11am in Romford’s town centre on Saturday, March 23.

Lianna Hayes, a vintage hits singer, performed classic tunes sung by Connie Francis and Elvis Presley at the Tollgate House end of the market.

Nic Dodin, founder of the HCCC, told the Recorder: “It was absolutely wonderful. It was very well received and we had many more people to come to see the cars then we expected.

“The council officers said they were pleased with the outcome and are now trying to get us involved with more events in the Romford market.

“Some residents who came to the event didn’t even know about HCCC. We’re a large club and we represent Havering at quite a few shows.”

Visit the club’s website for more information.
