The highlight of Saturday came when the car General Lee, from the Dukes of Hazzard fame and a Ford Mustang arrived in the village centre to collect Gina and David, took them for a ride around Goathland and down to the Hub to meet all The Yorkshire Air Ambulance team.

Val said: "Other donations which we are incredibly grateful for to name a few included the provision of the venue - The Hub and the all staff, supply of field (Mr Atkinson) for additional parking which eased the congestion in the village, all the volunteers who freely gave their time assisting with the stewarding the event, our two young ladies who ran the tombola, the stall holders for their donations of goods and percentage of their takings from the day too.

"The Heartbeat vehicle owners rally, who we joined forces with to embellish the event across the village, all the classic vehicle owners who brought their pride and joy to display to the public both in the village and down at the Hub, and all the stationary engine owners too.

"A fantastic time was had by all so once again, thank you to everyone involved, including all the businesses and residents of Goathland."

Fun at the classic vehicle rally in Goathland.
