It’s been going for nine years and raised more than £23,000 for local charities.

But organisers of the Parson Drove Car, Bike and Trike Show had even more reason to celebrate after this year’s event alone raised around £9,000 for good causes.

The ninth annual show, held on Saturday and Sunday, also attracted a record-breaking number of visitors.

Gavin Booth, a member of the organising committee, said: “It was our best year yet. The feedback has been amazing and the committee is incredibly proud of what we were able to achieve.”

The event, which included a music and beer festival on the Saturday, saw more than 300 cars and 200 bikes on display. There was also entertainment including a living history demonstration from the Knights of Skirbeck, a funfair, and a host of stalls and games for the kids.

The money will be donated to local charities, including the East Anglian Air Ambulance, the Magpas medical charity and the Village Hall.
