A GATHERING of motor enthusiasts was held to help raise cash to repair an historic village church.

The Steeple Vintage Vehicle Gathering took place on Sunday near Grange Farm.

The event promises to bring together a collection of cars, tractors and trucks in the village.

Spokesman Peter Marshall said: “This is our sixth year of running it.

“We started small and we’ve grown over the years.

“We usually have quite a good mix of vehicles coming in.

“We try to keep it a community event, which is why we call it a ‘gathering’ rather than a ‘show’.

The funds raised from the event will go towards the church steeple.
