Pub goers were treated to a display of classic cars and real ales over the bank holiday weekend.

The Blue Bell in Easton-on-the-Hill hosted its annual classic car show on Saturday and about 200 visitors turned out to see more than 20 cars and bikes.

The vehicles included a Jaguar E-Type, classic Volkswagen Campers and many more.

First place was awarded to David Snowden, from Deeping St James, who claimed the show trophy, sponsored by SRP Toilet Hire, for his 1966 Austin Westminster Saloon.

Brian Pick, of Ketton, scooped second place with his Triumph America motorcycle, while Jim Mason, who lives in the Easton-on-the-Hill, came third with his 1927 AC Aceca Six Tourer named ‘Kate’.

The day also included a beer festival, which featured ales from a number of local breweries, live music in the venue’s marquee and a raffle.

Funds raised, which are still being counted, are being donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Pub landlord Alex Rambaldi said: “It was a really good turnout despite the rain.

“The display of cars and bikes was quite amazing. I think everybody had a good time.”
