A popular family car event in aid of Bury St Edmunds-based hospice will return with a special guest this year.

Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake, which is in its ninth year, will take place at Hall Farm in Fornham St Martin on Sunday, September 2, with Rick Parfitt Jnr, son of late Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt, in attendance.

Mr Parfitt is the reigning British GT Champion and was the first driver to win both GT4 and GT3 titles.

The event, which raises money for St Nicholas Hospice Care, will see more than 650 vintage, pre-war, post-war, classic, modern and super cars on display as well as motorcycles and commercial vehicles.

Andrew Long, of Hall Farm, said: “We are so pleased Rick is planning to join us at this year’s show.

“Not only will he be bringing along his impressive car, he will also be bringing with him his fascinating insight into the world of racing.

“We are so lucky and grateful for the incredible support Classic and Sports Cars by the Lake attracts year after year.”

Tickets for the show, which can be bought at the gate, cost £8 for adults and £5 for children.

Family tickets (two adults and two children) can also be purchased for £20. Visitors will be able to enjoy the show from 11am-4.30pm.

Today we can finally reveal the names of the people selected to be on our first ever Inspiring Women of Suffolk list.

This is a list that Suffolk should be proud of - 100 women who are positive role models for future generations, women who have achieved success in a diverse range of fields from business, the arts, sport and education to the third sector.

The list was put together by a panel of judges this summer after we asked readers for their nominations.
