• 20th Anniversary Rally Next Weekend

    The weekend of 15/16 May marks the 20th anniversary of our first ever Annual Rally. Since our first event in 1990 we've always held the rally at Milton Keynes Museum and this year is no exception. Over the weekend we'll be displaying hundreds of mowers of all ages from the 1830s right through to the 1980s, so there's bound to be something for every collector and enthusiast.

    Our first club rally in May 1990 was attended by fewer than 30 club members but next weekend we're expecting over 100 to call in at some stage. The event is open to the public from 11am to 4.30pm on each day.

     

  • New Collectors Join Long Term Enthusiasts

    We thought it would be interesting to know how long site visitors have been collecting old mowers. Of course many visitors are not collectors so it's no surprise that the majority of respondents fall into this category. However, it is interesting that broadly as many people have been collecting for less than one year as those who have collected for more than 20 years. Our club celebrates the 20th anniversary of our first annual rally this year and many of the people who were present at that event will be there again in 2010. We have many long-term "founder members" but equally the number of new members joining each year reflects the ongoing popularity of this hobby. The full results of the poll are included below.
