 Show ‘n’ Shine Car of the Show – Stanley Wood’s 1970 Morris Minor Traveller

 Secure Locking Systems Trophy in memory of Colin Gray – Eric Hemming’s 1943 Willy’s Jeep

Organiser Alan Mason said that over the past six years the event has totalled £102,000.

He added: “This was our best ever Frankie’s Classic Car and Bike Fest with a huge range of vehicles on display, great music and dancing, and we are delighted to exceed our £100,000 fundraising target.”
