Driving Days 2017

Again, especially for you, we have arranged with several places throughout the country for the opportunity to drive or steer a traction engine or steam roller in the safety of private ground without the public being present. Those of you who have been on previous days will know how much fun it is.

If you wish to participate fill in this form and send it to Linda Allen (address on the form) so that we can make the necessary arrangements. Please include a SAE for us to send you the details.

For ALL driving days there will be a nominal charge of £15.00 per apprentice towards the cost of providing the engines.

Those who were on a reserve list in 2016 will be considered first for this year's events, (but you must still apply!) as well as those from non engine-owning families.
