Much Marcle Meet

With mixed weather but mainly sunny, we had a great weekend at the Much Marcle Steam Rally. Lots to see and do there from small models to large steam engines. Plenty of fixed engines and a brilliant sheep dog demonstration.

Lots of tractors; in fact we had a field full!

We camped near to the cider farm with guided tours and a coffee room.

Thanks to our stewards Doreen and Martin for a brilliant quiz. Nice to meet-up and great to make new friends.

Halfway through the Year!

We started the year in March near Rugeley, then to Uttoxeter.

From there to Market Bosworth for our AGM and a superb Easter weekend with our friends from the East Midland Section.

War Horse!

Then to Droitwich for our New Members Meet, taking in the Canal Festival.

In the evening we had a great time socialising in one of the carriages – an unusual venue enjoyed by all with much fun and laughter!
