This year’s Classic Car show in the historic Medieval Village of Lavenham was a resounding success despite heavy rain dampening proceedings during the afternoon.
Despite the predicated rainfall some 150 cars arrived covering a wide variety of marques and the steady throng of visitors to the event found a mix of food and drink stalls attending together with a range of trade stands.
Music was provided by local singer/songwriter Mike Gage and the scene was set for a busy fun day for all. Which it was – until the rain arrived.
A cheery atmosphere prevailed albeit some of the car owners chose to return home early rather than submit their precious vehicles to the downpour.
The event was held to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and Lavenham Community Council, both registered charities.
Event organiser Bruce Goddard said “this year the stage was set for a busy day which indeed started very well with a wide range of vehicles from Bugattis to Volkswagons and hundreds of visitors and despite the weather shortening the day’s activities we raised well over £1,500 for our chosen charities”.
