Visitors headed to the Stade Open Space on Sunday to view the assortment of classic cars at the annual Spratt and Winkle run.

The 40 or so historic commercial vehicles came from Sevenoaks in Kent before finishing off in Hastings.

Cllr Peter Chowney, the council’s lead member for regeneration, who attended Sunday’s event, said: “There were some superb vehicles, including an old fire engine from the Isle of Man, a heritage lorry loaded with a generator which powered some of the first lights at Heathrow Airport and, of course, our very own trolleybus ‘Happy Harold’ giving rides. It was great to see so many people enjoying this on the Stade Open Space, which was of course designed for events just like this.”
