Westbury Transport & Vintage Gathering - 26/27 April 2014

#1 Post by Scrumpy » Sun Oct 13, 2013 4:27 pm

Just rang the organiser Mrs Miller who confirm this local show is definitely ON at the end of April 2014. FREE to go, car groups, steam engines, local show for charity. She was keen our group of local Rover enthusiasts could support the event if possible. (Passed info onto Trevor for further details).

Site venue - The Top Field, Westbury Road, Bratton, Westbury, Wiltshire BA13 4TT
Contact Keith Miller or his wife: 01373 864 166 - keith@flowersfarm.wanadoo.co.uk

Must be something up Mancs & Lancs way, pop it up when you find out. Thought it would be good to get some '14 ideas up and see if local interest. :cool

Just up the road from Me Scrumpy
(Literally as I live on Bratton road!)

Be good to get some of the rovers together, as the regular exibitors are ex military and a few of the normal Mg's healeys etc.
Be good to show people the collectable Rovers from the 80's and 90's, and my 827 should be back with me by then.

Could meet up at mine before all going together?.

Mal.

Sounds great Mal to hook up at yours, maybe a small group of us on the day.... I mailed Trevor yesterday about this event so he'll be pleased another interested attendee. Just helping get a few SW meets ideas up and running for next year.

We took our MG Maestro's one year, and most didn't know what they were!.

Time to get some class to this event!, but need to watch the weather, as it has been cancelled a few times due to being completely washed out.

I no longer have a 200/400 (for now! ;) ) but I'm pretty sure any "Class" from the Rover dept will amaze and astound more than a few of the regular attendee's! :D

You have time to rectify the 'missing' 200/400 in your armour, or bring the Maestro as it wouldn't look out of place next to mine. I have a mk1 Rover 200 but made very welcome on here, especially as no mk1 forum home for the old 213/216. Think we could get a small group together for this event, one of the two days (the driest one).

Anyone in Wiltshire interested in this, one of the first events next season. Be good to support some events which rely on our cars to make them happen, most have a local charity element. Pop you name down if you can... :thumbup
