Stody Lodge Gardens will welcome a wide range of classic vehicle lovers for its fourth Stody Classic Vehicle Day on Sunday, May 22.

All classic vehicles, including coaches, tractors and motorbikes, are invited to a day of motors, spectacular gardens and delicious homemade teas.

Visitors are encouraged to admire the fantastic range of classic vehicles on display before enjoying Stody’s magical rhododendron and azalea gardens and a picnic.

Teas in the gardens will be provided by The Benjamin Foundation, from which they take all the proceeds.

The foundation has supported children, young people and families across Norfolk and Suffolk for more than 25 years, helping them overcome big challenges in their lives such as mental health issues and youth homelessness and helping them to find self-confidence, stability and independence.

Joshua Antcliff, fundraising officer at the foundation, said: “Money raised at the event can help local children and young people who are supported by The Benjamin Foundation to finally feel hopeful of a better future.”

Kate MacNicol, of Stody Lodge Gardens, said: “Since our inaugural Stody Classic Vehicle Day in 2018, this event has gone from strength to strength, with a bumper turnout in May 2021.

“We are so grateful to the excellent volunteers from The Benjamin Foundation who are integral to the smooth running of the event and we hope they will have a very successful time fundraising in the tearooms.”

The gates open at 11am and vehicles are welcome to arrive from this time.

The gardens will be opening at noon and will close at 5pm.

The driver of each classic vehicle is given a voucher for free entry to the grounds, while everyone over the age of 12 pays £8 to enter the gardens.

There is no need to register your car or to complete an application form to attend but drivers are asked to arrive in convoy if they  wish to attend as part of a club and be parked together. The gardens will also be open on June 2 and June 3 for the jubilee celebrations
