Lilley Cherished Vehcile Show takes place on Sunday, September 11

This is the village’s third Cherished Vehicle Show and it promises to be a fun afternoon for the whole family with a live jazz band, licensed bar and barbecue, as well as tea, coffee and home-made cakes.

Parish clerk Steve Patmore said: “We’re calling on all enthusiasts to come and exhibit their pride and joy. It doesn’t matter what it is - the more weird and curious the better – but as long as it interests you, we’re interested in your exhibit.

“It’s absolutely free to enter and we don’t mind what you bring – whether it’s a lawnmower, tractor, or trusty old bicycle – as long as it’s been cherished by someone somewhere along the way.”

The show runs from 1pm to 5pm.

While you’re in the village, visit St Peter’s Church with its scissor-braced roof, undressed local flint stone facing and beautiful stained glass windows.

In the peaceful churchyard there are some fascinating 17th and 18th Century graves, as well as a wooden grave board for James Allingham who died in 1838.
