Vintage Working Weekend

For the eighth year running, BA stores at Lyne of Skene is holding a Vintage Working Weekend for a variety of activities, displays and family fun.

The event will run over Saturday and Sunday (May 14 and 15) with stalls, 4x4 displays, ploughing demonstrations, steam driven saw bench, tractor run, boat pond, auto jumble, wood carving, tractor pulling and a working steam engine as well as a kids play area, not to mention the car boot sale and refreshments will be available - all in the name of a great day out.

Organiser, Allan Brownie said: “It’s all made possible by my fantastic committee.

“I’m very proud of my committee and also my helpers, the non committee members – I’m very proud of them as well – they put a lot of effort in too.

“I’d also like to thank all the exhibitors for coming. Without them I wouldn’t have a show. Some come from Perth, Inverness and all over Scotland.”

As a well established annual event in its eighth year, Allan the organising team try to have new things every year.

“New for this year is the dyno dig – kids have to find dinosaur bones. There will also be ‘learn to drive a Kubota buggy’ for anyone over 14 years old and we have tractor puling with a new supersledge build by Davie Gall and his helpers.

“We are expecting over 250 tractors, 50 stationery engines, a threshing mill and Davie Duncan’s Clydesdales from Perth. There will be lots of entertainment. Hopefully the weather will stay fine.”

The show opens at 9.30am with entertainment from 11am. Entry costs £6 for adults, concession and children £5 and a family of two adults and two children costs £18. Pitches for the car boot sale cost £5.

All proceeds this year will go to the Maggie Cancer Appeal.
