Royal British Legion members in Gedney Drove End and Dawsmere are over the moon as their first ever Classic and Vintage Vehicle Day yesterday (Saturday) was a massive success.

People came from far and wide to enter gleaming, beautiful vehicles and there were tractors and even a steam engine in the mix.

Over the road in Christ Church, Dawsmere, Long Sutton and District Civic Society made the day a double delight with an exhibition of memorabilia and photographs.

As well as games, stalls and refreshments, the car show was attended by South Lincolnshire Herpetology Society who took along snakes, reptiles and a tortoise.

Legion secretary Sue Mitchell said: “They were allowing the children to handle the snakes.”

Overall, the Legion had a fantastic day and this may be their biggest ever fundraiser.

We would like to make it an annual event. It was just such a lovely day.
