Historically, the September Gathering has been the one where we expect a lower attendance and fewer vehicles to admire. In the previous 4 years we have had poor weather and our best vehicle attendance had been a combined number of 230. Over the 4 years we had an average at our September Gatherings of 139 vehicles. However, this time, with the most glorious weather you could have wished for, and considering how the nights draw in so early now, we had a staggering 589 cars and motorbikes turn out. Wow! With passengers and walk-ins, the number of people in attendance was probably over 800. Yet, despite appearances, this Gathering ranked as our 3rdbest attended this year and since the Gatherings started in 2014.
The Gathering continues to gain momentum, as the element of surprise seems always to be with us. The number of “not previously seen” vehicles always creates an element of excitement as to just what may turn up and it reinforces the fact that the reputation of the Gathering spreads further each time. As is now our custom, we won’t be putting out a list of the fantastic marques that we are able to attract, but if you are interested, intrigued or just fancy an evening out, then come along to the next meeting (on the 21stMay 2020) to see for yourself – or look at our website.
We look forward to seeing you there in May 2020, and again “Thank You” for your continued and valuable support.
P.S. We shall announce our donation amount to the local Air Ambulance just as soon as we have worked out what it is to be!
