Car enthusiasts enjoyed more than 400 classic vehicles at Stamford and District Round Table’s annual show on Sunday.

The club held the event as usual on the Meadows, and despite poor weather plenty of visitors turned up to see the cars.

The day started with a rally through the countryside around Stamford, arriving at the Meadows just in time for the show to begin.

Sadly a flypast from an RAF Hawker Hurricane had to be cancelled when rain began to fall, but that didn’t stop people enjoying the show and donating to the club.

There was a traditional duck race for youngsters to take part in and the auction of a MGBGT car kindly donated to the Round Table. People could also take rides in a Ferrari for a donation.

More than £8,000 was raised, which will go to charities in and around the town.

Round Table member Neal Greensmith said: “We had a great day. The weather started to turn at about 1pm but we had about 450 vehicles. That was slightly down on last year but some people won’t bring their vehicle out if there’s the slightest hint of rain.

“We took about £8,500 on the day, with about £1,500 of that from a car auction. We also had big stands this year from Peugeot and Audi.

“It’s a well-supported event. Different sponsors every year help keep it fresh.”

Neal thanked all the sponsors, with a particular mention to Rosedale letting agents, Peterborough Audi and Hindmarch and Co Peugeot. He also paid tribute to the small team of Round Tablers who organised the event. Visit www.stamfordroundtable.co.uk to find out how to get involved.
