** To all who would have attended our Stradsett rally. It was very disappointing for Gordon Carson and the Committee to have to pull the plug on this annual event but of course in the present climate we had no choice and ultimately the Government decided for us. Our thanks go however to all the exhibitors, trade stand businesses and all who would have been involved in this magnificent event. Our thoughts are with all the charitable organisations who would have benefitted from this weekend.We hopefully have the Working Weekend to look forward to in September provided Government regulations allow. Stay Safe. HENRY HOWLETT Chairman **
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.
