Everyone had a great time at the Vintage car and tractor rally we had a stall selling our goods and recruited 2 new members. And launched a wheel appeal to ask the community to donate any old lawn mower wheels for us to recycle them instead of putting them into the local council recycling center where they are actually scrapped.
