The club has provided its annual appearance at the Great Dorset Steam Fair that was celebrating its 50th year with the target of having 500 engines present and in steam.

 

As usual the Steam Plough Club was situated by the steam ploughing field in a good position to attract the crowds. 18 ploughing engines attended. In addition Mike Beeby showed his Colin Tyler 2” scale ploughing engines Brian Snelgar provided his steam plough by the club tent. There was considerable interest in the club and this included many sales. There were 15 new members and renewals.


Thanks are due to Julie Chick, Dick Eastwood, Mike Beeby, Simon and Melanie Fisher, Clive Flack, Bernard and Madeleine Weatherley, Derrick Saunders and John Rhead for setting up and looking after the display for the duration of the show.
