Enthusiasts of anything on two, three or four wheels flocked to Sleaford’s annual Historic Car and Motorcycle Show on Saturday.

The event, as usual was held on Lafford terrace car park with the weather being kind to participants apart from the wind, which prevented a Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fly past.

Organising committee vice-chairman Emma Kiteley-Connon said: “We had between 30-40 motorcycles, over 70 cars, and lots of visitors.

“Feedback has been very positive - people have enjoyed yet another good show.

“Everything went very well and the volunteers worked very hard, as they always do.”

There were specially made awards for a number of categories including best in show, best car, motorcycle, commercial vehicle and furthest travelled on the day, as entries came from far and wide and well as locally.
