Atwell Wilson Motor Museum Road Run and Classic Vehicle Show – Saturday 14th – Sunday 15th July 2018

If you are not too familiar with the local area the Road Run, which is hosted on the Saturday before the show, is a great way to explore.

We did the drive and enjoyed it but we didn’t get all the quiz answers, then it was back to the museum for a BBQ in the evening sunshine.

On the Sunday bacon butties and cups of tea were the first order of the day after the club gazebo was assembled which was much needed later on in the day to keep out of the sun.

The weather this year was extremely good and some of the members brought their other ‘A’ series cars, including a 1275 Wolsey and a Midget to park near the club.  It looked like there were more classic cars in the rear car park this year.

The museum and other stands were selling second hand parts and we managed to get some old tools and some refurbish-able parts.

The museum itself is always worth a visit, especially as they have a few mini’s, including the gear less prototype.  Of course, there are lots of other cars that you wish you could have as well.

After walking around the show cars in the main car park it was time for an ice cream, before more tea and sausages at the club stand.

Wiltshire Armed Forces and Veterans’ Day – Saturday 30th June – Sunday 1st July 2018

Wiltshire Armed Forces and Veterans’ Day – Saturday 30th June – Sunday 1st July 2018

Back for its 14th year at Trowbridge Park the Wiltshire Armed Forces day was a great Sow for all the family with a very large children’s play park.

The aim of the weekend is to celebrate serving personnel, their families, veterans and cadets of our armed forces.

Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families. You can find out more about what they are doing at home and around the world by visiting the official sites of the Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Air Force.

There was lots to see at the show itself with car clubs, stalls selling everything, displays from serving, retired and veteran military personnel, marching bands, children's entertainment,  flypasts, including The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight carrying out a Lancaster flypast, re-enactor's, static vehicle displays, trade stalls, fair rides, and more.

On the Sunday there was a Parade of Standards followed by Drumhead Service and Beat Retreat.4

The club stands were in a great spot for minis and they got lots of interest from the general public as well as other would be nice to see more members for the next show.
