**STRADSETT 2021 UPDATE** It is with a very heavy heart, sadness and sheer disappointment I am having to write a cancellation statement for the second year running. Due to the ever-increasing covid-19 cases and restrictions which only seem to be getting worse day by day rather than better, sadly, the NVTEC-EA committee have had no choice other than to CANCEL our 2021 Stradsett Park Vintage Rally which was due to be held on Sunday 2nd and Monday 3rd May 2021. It would be irresponsible of our club to put on such a well-attended event and risk the health and wellbeing of our volunteers, exhibitors, traders and the paying public. We really do hope we will be able to put on our 2022 rally on Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd May. The NVTEC-EA committee thank you all for your support and ask you all to stay safe and prepare your vintage equipment ready for our 2022 rally, this could be our greatest show ever.
Gordon Carson and the NVTEC committee
Next Event: TO BE CONFIRMED
The National Vintage Tractor & Engine Club has been operating for over 40 years with approximately 5500 members.
As its name implies it is a National organisation, however it is divided into Regional Groups with our group known as East Anglia.
The Club presents an opportunity for devotees of tractors and stationary engines to contact fellow enthusiasts both at Group level, and nationally via it's flagship magazine, “Vaporising”. Another facet of the NVTEC is a Safety Code that is recognised as a standard by many rally organisers and insurance companies.
Each year the East Anglia Group organise a Charity Tractor Road Run
in April and a working weekend in early September. Between these events the Group is normally invited to participate in other rallies.
Winter meetings, comprising of a talk, film show etc, are held on the third Thursday of the months October to March at Ryston Park Golf Club near Downham Market. They may be replaced or supplemented by a visit.
The National magazine “Vaporising”
is a high quality publication produced quarterly. It will provide information on future events, reports on past ones, features, contact information for restoration and parts, along with items for sale and or wanted.
The East Anglia Group Newsletter
"Vintage Torque" also appears quarterly. It will supply group news, such as meeting topics and rally dates, along with contact information and other local issues.
