There were also wood sawing demonstrations, craft stalls, a Punch and Judy show and a fairground.

David Seeley, who organises the event with his brother Gerald, said: “We’ve heard nothing but praise for it. From an organiser’s perspective it was the easiest and most straight forward one we’ve ever had to do. It went like clock work.”

The rally has been going for about 25 years with 15 years at its current site. Previously it was held in Woolpit.
