Members of the club will have a chance to win an Atco motor mower at this year's annual rally as part of our celebrations of this famous company's centenary. Long-standing club member Geoff Christopher has generously donated a 16" Atco "Standard" Motor Mower from the 1920s and a 14" model from 1962 that will be the prizes of a raffle on the Sunday of our event. Both mowers are complete with their grass boxes and in original, unrestored, condition so would make an excellent addition to anyone's collection. It's a great chance for everyone coming to our event to win a piece of mowing history that, in one case, is almost 100 years old. Click on the images below to see larger versions.
Tickets for the raffle are only available at the event - at Milton Keynes Museum on 2/3October - and will be priced at £1 each. The draw will be held on the Sunday afternoon. All proceeds are being donated to our hosts at the museum to support the excellent work they do in promoting the history of the local community.
We normally hold an an auction during our weekend and it is always a popular part of the event. However, for a variety of reasons, we are not holding the auction this year. Instead, we are encouraging all members to bring any items they want to sell for the bring-and-buy section. This is a great way to pass on some surplus mowers and associated items and is also a popular part of our weekend.
