The threat of bad weather did not stop car enthusiasts from attending the annual Gillingham Transport Rally on Sunday.
Held at the village hall, the event saw a wide variety of vehicles go on display including classic cars, tractors, military vehicles and traction engines.
“It went really well and we had a really good turn out,” said Daniel Snowling, who has organised the event for the past three years. “There’s always a good selection of vehicles on show.”
A tombola and family activities including a bouncy castle and face painting entertained the crowds with the event raising money for the upkeep of the village hall.
However after a few hours of the event starting, the rain started to fall.

Mr Snowling, who exhibits old military vehicles, said: “It was a shame as it takes a lot of planning and effort to organise and we only had a good couple of hours. But we had a good amount through the gate.
“We get a lot of positive feedback from those who exhibit and they say it’s their favourite rally. It’s really friendly and has an old school atmosphere.”
