This year’s Hebden Bridge Vintage Weekend was a resounding success as the two day event raised £30,000 for local charities.

The event, which is organised by The Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge, drew in the crowds to look at the display of around 800 vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, military and commercial vehicles.

The sun shone as visitors stepped back in time to look at cars from eras gone by. Best in show on Saturday was a spectacular 1992 Morgan, owned by Geoffrey Bailey of Cleckheaton and best in show Sunday was a Chevrolet Courvier, to the delight of owner Kevin Buckley from Manchester.

Rotarian Graham Cobham said: “To put on such a show takes an awful lot of planning and work, indeed we will be back at work next month planning next year’s event with our dedicated team in each of their specialist areas. This year’s event leader was Bede Mullen, his first time as leader. Bede has really done a great job this year taking over the reins from Dave Clegg.”

The Rotary Club would like to thank everyone who was involved in the weekend for making it such a resounding success.
