Visitors could enjoy classic cars, as well as stationary engines from members of the Lincolnshire Oil Engine Club and bikes from members of The Boston Veteran Bicycle Club.

There was also entertainment from Skegness Banjo and Ukulele Band.

Trevor Monahan, one of the directors at the Village Church Farm, said: “It went very well, it was a lovely day.

“It was a fantastic day, everyone enjoyed it and we enjoyed it.”

This marks the sixth vintage vehicle event.

It saw about £400 raised which will help support the operation of the Village Church Farm.

l The day followed a devastating burglary at the museum the night before. For the full story on this and why the community is so outraged, see tomorrow’s Skegness Standard.
