The Redhill Village Club held its classic car and motorcycle show, where rare and vintage vehicles made an appearance on Saturday morning.

Motor-enthusiasts flocked to the village and the event had on display classic Ford, Austin Devon and Morris Minor cars.

A rare Morris Minor Eight Series car from 1948 was at the event, and its type made by the manufacturer had been used by the Royal Mail until the 1970s.

Paul Sanders also brought along his Ford F100 vehicle which was made in 1956, and the F-Series’ most popular model is now in its 13th generation.

Other cars there on the day featured an Austin A40 Devon owned by Steve Couzens, which has a super-charged engine underneath the bonnet of the vehicle.

The event raised money for the village children’s play area fund.
