The first classic car and motorbike festival to be held in Reepham has surpassed organisers' expectations.

The town's market place was full to capacity with vehicles from a golden age of motoring last Sunday.

From Rolls Royce to Porsche, Lotus and Jaguar along with motorbikes from the 1930s, 40s, 50s and 60s there were roars of delight as well as roars from the engines.

Peter Fitzjohn and Brian Hope, who are on the organising committee of the popular annual Reepham Music Festival, teamed up with fellow classic car enthusiast Michael Pender-Cudlip to plan the event.

Mr Fitzjohn said there was plenty to worry about organising their first event but all his worries were allayed on the day.

'So many people have asked us to do it again next year.'

He added that the fact the recently renovated Dial House had just reopened made a great difference to the event and with the pub and music being played it made it a perfect setting.

'Everyone is very enthusiastic about another event and there will be less to worry about next year,' he added.
