Thousands of car enthusiasts filled the Wellhead for the ninth Bourne Classic Car and Bike Show.

Organisers Annie Beech and Peter Dobson took charge of the event for the first time and were thrilled to welcome so many owners and visitors to the park on Sunday.

There were around 400 classic cars on show, including a special Mustang display to celebrate the car’s 50th anniversary, and 70 bikes.

Annie, whose partner Peter is a member of Bourne Motor Racing Club, said: “I’ve always liked classic cars but it’s mostly Peter’s interest. I’ve learnt a lot about cars in the last year though.

“When the previous organisers stepped down we didn’t want to see the event cancelled so we offered to help.

“It was a wonderful day and the whole park was covered with people. I hope it has put Bourne even more on the map as a great town.”

There was a Punch and Judy show to entertain the younger visitors, a performance from The Wississippi Jazz Band and a flypast from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

The organisers are now taking a well earned rest before deciding whether to volunteer for next year’s 10th anniversary event.
