A classic car tour through Dacorum saw more than 100 vehicles take part, in the event’s fourth year.

The fundraiser for the Dacorum Community Trust brought in thousands of pounds to help families in need.

All manner of vehicles from modern three-wheeler Morgan trike to Ferraris and Lamborghinis took part, along with a ‘King of the Mountain’ steam car which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.

A fleet of Austin 7s also commemorated late car enthusiast from Hemel Hempstead Dennis Huke, who drove a perfect condition model before his death late last year.

Hemel Hempstead MP Mike Penning drove a 1936 March tourer in the event, which involved a two-hour drive through the highways and by-ways of Dacorum.

There were four starting points, Apsley’s Shendish Manor, The Red Lion in Water End, Aubrey Park Hotel in Redbourn and Pendley Manor in Tring.

Ice cream vans and a hog roast topped off the day as the vintage vehicles all converged at Pendley Meadow afterwards.

Trust manager Margaret Kingston said: “It went extremely well. was a glorious day and the field was absolutely full.

“The money raised will help a great many people locally.”
