The Royal Norfolk Show
The 29th and 30th of June took us to The Royal Norfolk Show, the weather was very mixed, rain on Wednesday dry on Thursday. Once again members worked hard to put on a good show, we were rewarded by being presented with the Barclays cup for the best trade stand in our class. Exhibits were varied several crawler tractors stood out this time including a diesel D4 Caterpillar, Fordson Major E27N tracked vehicle with a perkins P6 engine, and a Fordson model n roadless half track. Other models included a Bungart 3 T 8 with VW engine, a varied selection of John deere, some very early models on display, Oliver 70 industrial sat next to a Cockshutt imported from Canada in 2015. The horticultural section was well represented with various models. The engine ring had a good selection of varous makes, an Amaco ran a Boulton and Paul engine made in Norwich, a Moniter with a Hudson water pump. Matthew ran a Douglas SV 45, other Junior members had a good day and looked very busy.
Our thanks to all who made this event so successful. Next event Worstead Festival followed by Marsham .
