Classic motorshow held in tribute to Queen Elizabeth II
There were a range of classic vehicles situated throughout the village, with classic cars and vintage tractors and other vintage farm machinery situated near the village hall and vintage motorbikes at the Sebastopol Inn – all dated pre-1990s.
There was a performance by the Minting Community Choir at the village hall during the afternoon, who were very well received, and inside the hall there were plenty of teas and coffees and cake, a tombola and craft stalls by local makers.
A minute’s silence was held to pay tribute to Her Majesty The Queen at the beginning of the event, and a flag was flown at half mast throughout the day as a mark of respect to our late monarch.
Overall, the event raised more than £1,300 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Maggie Grysa, one of the organisers, said that the committee decided the event should go ahead to pay tribute to the late Queen:
"As it was a fundraiser to raise money, we thought it should go ahead so we could raise money, and we raised more than £1,300 so something good came out of something bad,” she said.
"We had so many people saying thank you to us and that they’d had a lovely day as they left, it all went really well and it was fantastic,” she added.
