‘Time travellers’ are set to descend on Middleton this Sunday as more than 70 veteran, vintage and classic cars will be displayed as part of the village’s annual summer fete.

Visitors can see what travelling was like at the start of the First World War, through the 1920s and 30s to the early naughties.The show will represent motoring history from 1914 to 1999, including some vehicles which were supplied decades ago by local garages whose names have long since disappeared.

The fete starts at 12.30pm on Shrubb’s Field, Elmer Road, Middleton-on-Sea.

The popular dog show will open the event and and runs at various times throughout the afternoon. There will also be a wide selection of stalls, raffles, tombolas, bouncy castles and other entertainments.

Car booters will be well represented and craft stalls will fill the village hall.

To keep everyone well refreshed, the scouts’ hall assumes the role of tearoom, whilst a BBQ and beer tent offer alternative choices.

This year’s fete beneficiary is Chestnut Tree House, the hospice which provides specialist care to life-limited children in Sussex and South East Hampshire.
