Kington Vintage Club Show
16th-17th August 2014
Report Picture

Some of our members went up on Saturday. Wayne stayed in his VW Camper van, Tony stayed in a hotel along with Kinsley. Phil, Richard and myself went up on the Sunday.

 The day was very full with loads of cars to see, auto jumble and an arena in the middle of the field with things going on all day like the steam engines, motorbikes, birds of pray, kiddies' games and much more.  At the auto jumble we made a few bargains and spent time looking at the various things that were being sold.

With two gazebos and the flags flying our plot looked quite good even if I say so myself. The weather was kind to us it was warm and sunny. Six cars made the journey to Kington, which is very near Hereford and is a small village that has a fair bit of history, mainly about the glorious church. By 1861, because the church was in a state of general decay and being inadequate to the accommodation of the inhabitants it was rebuilt the following year, apart from the tower, at an estimated cost of 1215.4s.10p.

On the way home we came back via brecon which is always a very scenic way home and we all stayed together with Phil at the front.
