For the second year running ‘The Pheasant’ pub in Gestingthorpe played host to our Society for a weekend of Beer & Steam Engines
Our first visit was actually two years ago during the 2012 Sudbury Road Run when the pub was our lunch stop. Lasts years event was a success and this year it had been planned to run as a two day event. Sadly the weather intervened and Sunday was called off due to rain
There were three full size engines present. The first a Burrell Gold Medal Showman’s Tractor named ‘Peter Pan’ was sent along by the local Webb family. Matt Garwood, son of club Vice President John Garwood came along with his Aveling Roller, and Dan Chidgey completed the trio with his Aveling Roller ‘George’.
5 Miniatures also joined in the fun 2 Burrells, 2 McLarens, and 1 Ruston Tractor.
There was a good turn out on the Saturday afternoon and particularly for the evening entertainment, which was ably assisted by ‘Peter Pan’ generating light into the night
