999 DAY

18th May saw the 2nd Emergency Services day.  Fire service vehicles  from the 1950s and 2000 were in attendance along with an ex Essex Police car, Essex Police Museum, St Johns Ambulance and British Transport Police Search Dogs.  A re-enactment saw a Fire Engine, Police and Ambulance go into action with lights and sirens, much to the delight of younger visitors.


Peppa and George paid a return visit to the Colne Valley Railway over the Bank Holiday weekend of 4th & 5th May.  We were lucky with the weather and they were able to stay out on the platform meeting and greeting their fans, young and old.


The weekend of 26th 27th April saw the annual Vintage Vehicle Rally. Cars of every shape and size filled the field along with some commercial vehicles and stationary engines. Unfortunately the weather wasn't too kind on the Saturday but Sunday was a lot better.
