Norfolk Rally in Scottow draws out the crowds

The sun was out to welcome visitors to a charity rally being held in North Norfolk

The Norfolk Rally is being held at North Walsham Rugby Club, Scottow today and tomorrow.

As well as displays of vintage tractors, vehicles, steam engines, motorbikes, classic cars, shire horses, trade stands and craft stalls, there was is also a car boot sale and live entertainment in the evening tonight.

One of those exhibiting is Andy Potter from Worstead who had brought along a 1924 Foster Traction engine which he helps keep in condition for its owner, Ruth Groom from Northamptonshire.

He said: 'We do not often come to these sort of rallies, we normally just amuse ourselves with it really. ' But he revealed the rally bug had bitten and they are now set to display at another rally being held at Strumpshaw Hall next weekend.

Overseeing the Norfolk Rally is ring manager Neil Cushion.

He said: 'Last year we had superb weather, I think it was the hottest weekend of the year and this year we have done really well with the weather again. We have had all kinds of things, classic motorcycle displays, classic cars, stationary engines, and trade stands as well.'

The event is organised by Norfolk Rally Group which was established in 2004 by a group of local enthusiasts. Each year the group supports a local charity to donate proceeds to, although this year's recipients have not been decided.

Proceeds raised from last year's rally helped the organisers make several small donations to local causes including Scottow Church and North Walsham First Responders.
