Prescott Bike Festival 2013

The end of a long but great day

The end of a long but great day

Due to the fact that the date of this years Prescott Bike Festival clashed with the Club’s AGM at Gaydon, several of our branch members had to miss this most  prestigious event; never the less twelve hardy branch members turned up very early on a rather chilly morning to man the branch stand.

As all of the exhibitors had to be there no later than 8.30am on the Sunday, Chris S and Colin had volunteered? to erect our new marquee on the Saturday so that all would be ready for us on the day.  Thanks Guys much appreciated.

The pitch allocated for us this year was one level up the hill from last year which meant we had a spectacular view across the surrounding countryside even allowing us to see the Toddington to Cheltenham Steam engines in action.

During the day we had a lot of people visiting the stand showing a lot of interest as well as the usual story telling from yester year.

It was a very long day which did get warmer as the sun rose into a lovely blue sky and as the clock approached the 5.30pm end of event time, we all mucked in to dismantle the stand, load everything that needed carting away and started our bikes and made our way home.  A great day.
