“It takes over 100 people to put on a show of this size, and we’d like to thank all the exhibitors and supporters for contributing, and the general public for attending and making the show such a success.

“We’re proud that well over £500,000 has been raised for charity over the last 19 years of running Rotary Cars in the Park in Lichfield.”
