‘Full up’ signs next year after record turnout at Skeyton Goat classic car rally

The organisers of a popular classic car and motorcycle rally are set to restrict entries on the day next year after a record turnout at the weekend event.

The 12th Skeyton Goat rally attracted more than 1,000 visitors - double last year's figure - plus 350 classic cars and 60 motorcycles.

Joint pub landlady Jo Cooke was delighted with the response, despite the chilly weather, but said it meant the field where it was held had now reached capacity.

Mrs Cooke, who runs the pub with her husband Jeremy and her parents Stephen and Judy Cooper, said: 'It seems to get bigger each year. Next year there will be no entries on the gate.

'Usually we let people in on the day, but we haven't got enough field left now.'

The event on Sunday raised �4,551.13 for the Big C - a charity that is close to the family's hearts after Mr Cooper was recently diagnosed with cancer.

It included a car boot sale, 'auto jumble', a beer tent, hog roast and a barbecue.
