More than 100 vehicles have been entered so far for the event, which will run from 10.30am until 5.30pm.

"This is a really big event for Leek Rotary Club and depends on attracting many visitors from Leek and district.

"The event will raise more much-needed funds to help all sorts of deserving causes and we have agreed that our main sponsored cause on this occasion will be the local branch of the NSPCC.

"We have also organised this event for the people of Leek and surrounding areas to enjoy."

The Auto Extravaganza is set to include classic cars, lorries and vans, coaches, tractors, military vehicles, motorbikes and scooters, stationary engines, and an auto jumble.

There will also be other attractions such as fairground rides, ice cream vendors, train rides, face-painting, quad bike rides, a fairground organ, a licensed bar and refreshments, and overnight camping will also be available.

Mr Edwards added: "We do need some more stallholders to book a place and there is lots of space inside and outside for this.

"All the details to book are on our website www.rotaryclubleek.org.uk."
