Heskin Vintage Rally

Heskin Vintage rally was a great success and the NWTPC stand stirred up a lot of interest in our sport and the tractors were well received by the crowd. The Wilkinson, Forrest, Taylor and Parkinson families along with Red Mist and Lancashire Bomber were there all weekend handing out flyers and talking to the public.
The favourite attraction was the small pedal model of a tractor and sledge, which gave the kids an opportunity to "have a go" and hopefully we met some new drivers of the future

Chipping Steam Fair and Heskin Vintage Rally

Some members of the NW Club spent a very wet bank hoilday weekend at the annual Chipping steam fair. Despite the weather, Thurston Warrior and Red Mist were displayed and members of their teams talked to the public and gave out flyers to advertise our events.
Many thanks to Stephen, Rachel and Joe Ainsworth, Alistair, Lisa and Joseph Parkinson and of course "well done" Derek, Carol and Evie Taylor who braved the elements (of which we suffered them all!) to promote our sport.
This weekend 4th and 5th June the club is attending The Heskin Vintage Rally at Chorley, displaying Lancashire Bomber, Simply Red and Red Mist. If you are there come and say hello and have a look at the work that has been done on these tractors over the Winter.
