Norfolk Show 2019 Stand

Award Winning Norfolk Show 2019

Members of the Norfolk and Norwich Rover Owners Club were invited to join the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club to provide a display stand at the Royal Norfolk Show on the 26th/27th June.

   

   

The Royal Norfolk Show has been a tradition for many years. It celebrates a blend of Agriculture, Horticulture, all aspects of our County’s diverse countryside community and also it’s many industries since 1954.  The Show includes everything from the traditional Livestock/Animal Judging, Equine Competitions, Farming Machinery to Gardening Tools, Science and Technology Research, Local Food and Wine Producers, Displays of Sheep Shearing to Gun Dog Training, Wildlife Preservation to Animal Rescue, Arts and Craft Producers the list is endless.

    

This Year it also included 17 cars on our Award Winning Stand of Classic Cars, showing the range of British Motoring from 1935 – 2000.

Our Stand attracted significant interest from the public who attended the show, many of which stopped to share family memories of cars they remember from their younger days, or ask questions about cars on our display.

The Royal Norfolk Show Association Judges who witnessed the public’s interest in our stand awarded our team The Tibbenham Challenge Trophy, which is ‘Presented to the stand of any classification showing the Greatest Initiative and Originality’ and was presented by Lord Chumley.

    

To say that our we were happy was an understatement. It was the Cherry on the Top of a very unique experience for both our clubs and a well deserved award for our stand’s organiser Gary Reeves from the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club.
