He admitted: “It was affected by the weather with over 50 per cent of the 'parking slots' lost. By Wellhead Gardens, where much of the event was held, it had been like a lake last Wednesday. The car show still went ahead.”

The show featured 100 cars around Bourne’s Red Hall in South Street. There were a further 60 cars, plus market stalls in West Street, along with live music. South Street Car Park also contained plenty of stalls and cars.

Paul said: "There were many amazing vehicles for people to admire. A diverse and bustling market gave plenty of choice with many engaging stalls, as well as a collection of popular fairground rides."

"The 'sound tent' entertained visitors throughout the day with brilliant performances from a diverse array of talented musicians, most of whom were local people."

“It was a really positive day. People look forward to it as one of the major events in the town's calendar; and because it was Fathers’ Day, we had a great turnout for the cars and motorcycles.”
