Fairford Steam Show chugs its way to success at Quarry Farm in Poulton
FAIRFORD Steam Rally and Show chugged its way to success last weekend despite its new location in the village of Poulton.
Due to flooding problems in recent years which affected the running of the popular show in Fairford, organisers moved the the rally to Quarry Farm in Poulton this year. After some initial worry that Fairford residents would not attend the show this year, organisers were ecstatic to see a huge turnout of people from Fairford, Poulton and beyond.
Show manager and director David Hooker said the event went really well: "It was a great turnout. We had two car parks set up and both were full.
"There was a really good, strong crowd and I think everyone really enjoyed themselves."
The family day out included vintage vehicles, a dog display team, a mobile climbing wall, 12 steam engines, a funfair, model boats, a beer tent, a hog roast and more.
"Peter Leadbetter who does chainsaw carving was a huge hit," Mr Hooker continued. "A huge crowd was watching him carve bears and owls out of wood with the chainsaw."
The amount of funds raised for County Air Ambulance Trust has not yet been confirmed as organisers are still adding up the figures.
