Hundreds of families enjoyed dog shows, classic car displays of more than 600 vehicles and much more during the show in late June.

Yvonne Stott, community and events fundraiser for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, said: “I have been coming to the Fylde Vintage Steam and Farm Show now for a number of years and it never fails to disappoint in terms of a great value for money day out for the whole family.

“There’s always such a lot going on day and night over the weekend. We are hugely grateful to David for his support. The tractor auction is a very popular attraction in its own right.”
