Villagers are calling for all things vintage as their town is transported into the 1940s.

Ingleton, in North Yorkshire, will step back in time for their 1940s weekend on July 1 to July 3.

The nostalgic event is intended as a celebration of the music and fashion of a bygone age when mutual support and an “all in it together” mentality were the cornerstones of community.

Taking transport as their theme, villagers are inviting car lovers from far and wide and are predicting a huge turnout.

Event chairman Tim Goundry said: “Exciting means of transportation are already confirmed and include a Battle of Britain memorial flypast, a parachute display by the Royal Logistic Corps Silver Stars, a replica Spitfire on display and a visit from the Thwaites dray and beautiful shires.

“We are turning our attention to vintage vehicles to join our parade and displays around the village throughout the weekend and we need as many people as possible to get in touch.”

Are you the proud owner of a classic car, mature motorbike or time-honoured tractor, truck or tricycle from the 1940s era? Then the committee want you to showcase it.

There is no charge to enter vehicles, discounts on camping locally are available.

There will plenty for visitors and families including a flypast, stalls and food. Contact ingleton.1940s@yahoo.co.uk.
