A vintage and classic vehicle festival in Melton’s Play Close was adored by visitors from all over the borough on Sunday.

The event held by the Rotary Club of Melton Mowbray raised £785 for the QMC Helipad Appeal and other projects supported by rotary locally and internationally.

Spectators also enjoyed picnics and stalls as well as voting for the winners of the ‘Best in decade’ competition.

Melton Rotary Club member Julia Hinde said: “We were delighted with the quality of vehicles on display. The ‘Best in show’ prize was awarded to a Jaguar E Type worth over £100,000.

“Due to the success of our first class vehicle festival we will be back in 2016. Thanks must also go to the Town Estate for their support.”
