The Latest from the Tamar Historic Transport Club
Recent THTC Events.
We have been very active this Summer, attending many events including, All things Vintage at Cothele, Morwellham Quay vintage day, Tavistock Steam Rally, Launceston Steam Rally, Powderham Vintage Vehicle Gathering, Wadebridge Wheels, Drive it Day, Boconnoc Steam Rally, Mount Edgecombe Rally. I have missed quite a few I'm sure but this gives you a flavour of what we have been up to. We also attended the inaugural event for the Great Trethew rally and great it was, blessed with very good weather and well organised, a very enjoyable event. Our Autojumble was not blessed with good weather but was still I think a success with not quite as many people through the gate as last year but enough to satisfy the many stallholders and for us to make a profit to go towards our this years charities. We have one upcoming run, Which starts at the Wharf car park in Tavistock on the 26th November at 10.00 for 10.30, travelling across Dartmoor and finishing at the Mortonhamstead Motor Museum for a look around and lunch in a Mortonhamstead hostelry. The last run, which went on a tour of Bodmin moor culminating on a visit to The Cornwall at war museum which was VERY interesting and informative, was a great success. With many of us meeting early at The Engine House at Kelly Bray for an excellent breakfast and then a large pasty at the museum followed by buttered teacake in the afternoon, I for one was "fit to burst" but a great fun filled day with good company. A group of twenty club members have just returned from a very enjoyable weekend at the Northfield Hotel in Minehead. The hotel was excellent with very good food and very good company. We ventured out around around such places as Dunster, Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth etc. A really fun weekend in a hotel which very much suited our needs, these weekends are always great fun and all our cars and club members behaved themselves over the weekend.
