Rally Field improvements

On Sunday 19th March 2017 a working party met on the Rally field to  improve access to parts of the rally field by starting the work to widen the bridge between the main rally field and the bottom rally field.

This will allow better access this year to the tractor pulling, the working area and additional exhibitor camping.

the team plan the work before breaking ground.
