Working Vintage Festival



At a meeting of the Club on 6th October 2021 the members reluctantly took the decision not to hold another Working Vintage Festival in Rosemount Estate Greyabbey.


The main reason for this is simply the lack of help. Members are getting older, and over the past few years we have sadly lost a number of faithful people who were willing to give their time to make the event a success.


The Club would like to thank the Montgomery Family for all their help and use of the Estate over the years.


We are however looking to the future and plan a revamp of both Club meetings and a different style of event in future. No firm decisions have been made yet, but several exciting ideas are being explored, and will be announced in due course .






Liam Mason 


It is with regret that CDTEC have to announce the death of a former chairman of the club, Liam Mason. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.







Next Meeting


The club is pleased to announce that it will begin normal meetings again on Wednesday 24th November 2021 in te the usual place, Manor Court Hall, Mill Street, Newtownards at 8 00 pm. We look forward to seeing everyone.
