Redhill Village Club organises meetings for car and motorbike enthusiasts in the evenings over the summer and an array of fantastic vehicles were on display to visitors on August 16.

The recreation field was teaming with people keen to see modern classics and rare historic cars on show.

Maggie Shapland brought along one of the oldest cars, with her 1925 Talbot 10-23 attracting a lot of attention.

Fords, Alfa Romeos and even kit cars were also on display.

A barbecue was also arranged so hungry punters were not disappointed.

Last week’s show was the fourth and final event of the summer. However, a breakfast classic car and motorbike gathering will be held at the same place on October 7, from 9-11am.
