Villagers and motoring enthusiasts turned out in Congresbury to enjoy a classic car rally at the weekend.

The event began at Cadbury Garden Centre, in Smallway, on Sunday morning and saw dozens of classic and vintage vehicles on display.

The first car left the garden centre at about 10.30am and was followed by the rest of the vehicles, as they made their way around the North Somerset countryside to finish at the White Hart pub, in Wrington Road.

The rally was raising money for the Congresbury New Village Hall Development Trust, which hopes to build a new village hall on the King George V Playing Fields in Stonewell Drive.
