Message from the Rally Chairman – Martyn Slater

February 2024

 

‘The Stroud Vintage Transport & Engine Club is proud that, apart from enforced cancellation due to the Covid pandemic, the event has been an annual fixture in the rally calendar since the 1970s. Whilst it’s evolved over the decades, the mission remains the same: to inform, educate, entertain and celebrate our unique transport history – and it’s packed full of exhibits, displays, entertainment and stalls to keep the whole family entertained. The event features a vast array of classic transport, bygone skills, agricultural practices and, of course, modern-day restoration and pure grit and determination – the very bedrock that this nation was built upon.’

 ‘The event industry has changed considerably since the pandemic, with many similar events falling by the wayside due to the ever-increasing costs. Thanks to the prudence of the committee and volunteers, we continue to “strive and survive” to provide one of the best-value family days out in Gloucestershire. What’s more, we’ve frozen the admission prices again for 2024!
