Working Vintage Rally - Thank you

Just a word of thanks to all the visitors who attended our rally on 12th and 13th August. We were blessed with good weather and attracted a good crowd particularly in the working fields on   Saturday where the oats and potatoes were being harvested and the classic tractors were working. The Friday night road run attracted 207 tractors and although that was down a little on previous years  the poor weather forecast and other events that week would explain that. I hope you all enjoyed your visit - we never forget that we couldn't do it without your support. 

I believe the 2016 event was one of our best events in recent years in terms of the amount and quality of our exhibits and activities and I would also like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to the club members who gave of their time and worked so tirelessly in the days and weeks before the rally to make it happen on the day. Thank you all.

Trevor McBurney, Chairman

Elaine Quinn

The  club was saddened to hear of the passing of our esteemed friend Elaine Quinn and wish to pass on our condolences to PJ, the family circle, and the members of the Peninsula Vintage Club. Elaine was a tireless worker for the PVC and a good friend to all in the vintage movement.

She will be sadly missed by all who knew her and the world will be a poorer place without her - our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.
