More than 60 cars filled Weston’s Grove Park on Saturday as the new vintage car season rolled into town.

The spring and summer events see cars of all shapes, sizes and ages, come to the popular park for a day in the sun.

Motorheads had the opportunity to discuss their beloved vintage vehicles as Jaguars, campervans and minis parked up.

Event organiser Keith Parker celebrated 41 years of being involved in car shows, sharing his love with classic cars with the people of Weston.

He said: “Drivers from as far as Exeter and Tenby in Wales came down for the day.

“It was a great day despite the sudden storm.

“Previous events have helped raise more than £190,000 for charity and this year will be no different.”

The next classic car shows will be on May 7 and May 27 in the park. Other events, including live music performances, are planned throughout the summer months.
