Dozens of vintage vehicles will again be lined up along the Suffolk seafront today for the return of a popular bank holiday tradition.

The 100 Friends Motor Enthusiasts Group (100FMEG) is holding a classic car display for its members at the Moot Hall in Aldeburgh.

The vehicles, which range from the 1920s-80s, will be on show from 11am-4pm.

“Owners of the vehicles always like to chat to the visitors about their pride and joy,” said member Peter Jacobs.

“The group will raise funds for the Aldeburgh Town Charities.

Some of the cars at previous events organised by the group include Rover P5, Austin 7, as well as a number of Rolls-Royces, Minis and Fords.

The group has been visiting the Aldeburgh seafront from more than 20 years, and say they are always made to feel welcome.

“We find the visitors to the town think it makes a really nice feature,” Mr Jacobs said.
