A classic day out in Hatfield
FROM Ford Capris and Granadas to Ferraris and Morris Minors, a whole host of vehicles proved to make an annual show another classic.
The Hatfield Heritage Vehicle Society hosted its ninth rally and family fun day, which proved to be its biggest yet.
More than 2,000 people flocked to Birchwood Leisure Centre to see the dozens of vehicles on show of all shapes and sizes, from the early 1930s through to the present day.
In the arena there were displays from the Attwirlettes troupe, the Hatfield South District Dog Training Club and the Hatfield Community Choir.
There were plenty of games for youngsters as well, including an egg-and-spoon race and tug o’ war.

Society president Colin Croft said: “The day was only dampened – no pun intended – by the late rain just after the trophies were awarded.
“And on the topic of trophies, the winner of this year’s best club car was Keith Halsey with this 1963 Humber Sceptre.”
