GLORIOUS sunshine and a fantastic array of 363 vehicles made the third Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake a tremendous success, raising well over £20,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

Gina and Andrew Long threw open their Hall Farm home in Fornham St Martin for the event.

Gleaming chrome, pristine pistons and shiny spark plugs went on display as Model T Fords sat alongside 21st century Ferarris.

There was also a display of classic bikes on show.

Some 4,000 people turned out for the day including former Rolling Stone Bill Wyman who stayed for the day and presented the prize for the best modern classic car.

There was a Greene King beer tent providing welcome drinks and tasty treats from the Suffolk Food Hall, as well as a range of different trade stands and entertainment for children.

David Ruffley, MP for Bury St Edmunds, also supported the day.

Austin Cornish, chairman of the event organising committee, said: “The weather was very good and the array of cars was a great attraction.

“Bill Wyman was very generous with his time and comments and made a big effort.”
