Our season so far, to July

by Roger the Roving Rover Reporter
Our season opener was the Village Show at Marshland St. James the day before Drive-it-Day run. It was a little wet at times but enjoyable.
After Drive-it-Day we were off to Stradsett Park Vintage Rally, another great weekend.
At the Carrington Rally, May 28th-30th we were invited to put our display on at Lineside Vintage show in October. They were impressed with our set up even though we had been living in a ‘dust bowl’ for three days and our cars looked like barn finds and we all had brown hair and clothes.
Jim Read made us all very welcome again at Holbeach this year although some of us had to be towed in through the mud bath main entrance. It all cleared up over the weekend and getting out on Sunday was fine.
On 25th & 26th June we went to Steam on Rutland Water for the first time. This must be one of the finest venues we have ever been to. Parked up on the side of the lake, it was beautiful.
Off to North Norfolk Railway 2nd & 3rd July for their Vintage Transport Weekend at the back of Holt station. We put a display together with the Anglia Region Wolseley Register, it must have impressed the organisers as they have asked us all back again next year.
Saturday and Sunday vintage buses take you to Sherringham and back (hop on, hop off) and Sunday steam train rides the same. All free for exhibitors. Over 4oo vehicles there, and the compliments were non-stop.
At Parson Drove show 16th & 17th July, Roger Reader and his team gave us enough space to display 7 period/classic caravans and 23 classic cars. A huge thank you to them and all our club members who attended as our club display won Best Club Stand trophy and Fred Clarke won the trophy for Best Pre 5o’s Classic Car with his 1937 MG VA.
