The Guernsey Vintage and Classic Tractor Club, with nearly 60 members, meets several times a year for road runs, shows and ploughing competitions. The National Trust of Guernsey are great fans of GVCTC and for about half a dozen times, over the last two years, the tractor club have assembled on the courtyard at the National Trust of Guernsey's Folk and Costume Museum at Saumarez Park. The sun shone and a happy crowd gathered at this unofficial event for GVCTC and National Trust of Guernsey. With thanks to GVCTC for giving a lot of people a lot of smiles. Here’s to the next!
