Six of our members enjoyed a day out at the Rural Pastimes event at Euston Hall. Our three vehicles were able to park together amongst a field of over 300 classic cars of all types. Also on the field were lorries, motorbikes, tractors and stationery engines.
There were plenty of stalls with something for everybody to buy, including lots of fast food vans, so that you would never be hungry. Amongst other things going on during the day were horse scurrying, dog agility shows and horse and dog displays. The three show rings at the event were kept busy all day.
Amongst the Euston Hall Park estate is St Genevieve’s Church where they held a flower festival to celebrate the 90th birthday of HM the Queen. If you so wished you could have joined their morning service. Later in the day they also had a street party to celebrate the Queen’s birthday.
Next to us on the field was Grant Carter from DSN at Attleborough, who we were trying to persuade to belong to the Branch. We will wait and see! Grant was in his brothers Morris Minor.
Last year at nearly every event we went to we were treated to a fly past by Maurice Hammond in his Mustang. Today was no exception. On leaving the field after the show we were all given a brass plaque as a memento.
