Gosh what a day! Can I just say thank you to everyone who made the day so special. The weather held, the carbooters, exhibitors, and public followed and in great numbers. Isn’t it wonderful we can enthusiastically celebrate all that is great in living where we do and maintaining our heritage. A special thank you to Mrs Rachel Davis and Family who once again kindly allowed us to stage the event on their property. We are very grateful for their support.
A big thank you again. See you in 2020.

Mid-Wales Vintage Machinery Club Ltd is a not for profit organisation and we raise our money through support of our members as well as the general public. We are very grateful for the support we receive which allows us to share what we raise with local charities and good causes.
Our major fund raising event is our annual rally which will be held on Monday 27th May. Please come along if you can.
At the Social evening on Wednesday 12th December the Club presented two cheques. One for £3000 to the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund and the other for £1200 to Caersws Village Club. Lingen Davies is well know in the area for supporting those with Cancer and Caersws Village Club, which is staffed by volunteers, provides a venue for many local groups and Clubs.
