Chrome polished to a mirror finish could be seen outside The Shoulder of Mutton in Little Horwood last weekend for the village’s annual fete and classic car show.

The event raised a record-breaking £4,000 for church maintenance funds and included stalls, luxury teas and pony rides. There was also music by the Secklow Brass Band and a historical display in the church.

Car show organiser, Tara Garritt, from The Shoulder of Mutton, said: “The classic car show plays an important part in the church fete. We do it every year and it does attract a lot of visitors.

“People bring up their beautiful cars, bikes and even their vintage tractors.”

Despite soggy conditions, the fete had a record attendance.

“People came along from the village and Winslow - it must have been well attended this year,” Tara said.

“In the morning, everyone was setting up their stalls in the drizzle and hoping the weather wasn’t going to get any worse!”

The event ended with a barbecue and music from The Fabulators, in The Shoulder of Mutton.
