Keeping ploughing engines, implements and skills alive
DORSET STEAM FAIR 2015
We had an excellent reception at this years steam fair taking advantage of an excellent new marquee provided by Madeleine Weatherly and refurbished by the club.
Julie Chick took charge of sales and enquiries helped by Simon and Melanie Fisher, Sean Symons, Mike Beeby and Bernard and Madeleine.
Julie said “We had healthy sales of club stock and donated books. We recruited 7 new members and took subscriptions both overdue and in advance”.
Saturday saw a social gathering of members and engine gangs which is always successful going far into the dark.
The weather stayed good and the ground was firm for cultivation.
The club is grateful for all those who were able to help during this occasion.
