The Royal Norfolk Show
On the 1st and 2nd July we attended The Royal Norfolk Show at Costessy near Norwich where members put on a mainly static display of tractors implements and horticultural equipment some with accessories. The engine ring puffed, popped and occasionally banged with noise and excitement as the engines worked tirelessly away both days.
Now we all know that we never have the weather quite right, this time we were treated to cloudless blue skies and temperatures of 30 degrees plus, umbrellas were used as sunshades! I was in awe of those who worked the engines in such heat with little or no escape from the sun.
We were very privileged to have the Show President and his wife visit our stand, it is a real pleasure to have such interest shown by the organisers in what is really our hobby, we also like to think our stand reflects our commitment to give members of the public an insight into times past.
Once again Graham and his working area proved to be of real interest and their theme of working the exhibits is always a pleasure to watch.
Our thanks as always to the stewards who take time to give information to all who express an interest in what we do, it is always good to see youngsters taking an interest in the exhibits. As always tea and cakes were provided for members and guests and we thank everyone who made this event successful.
