Rally

The club received a lovely email from this years charity RABI, we thought you all might like to see it: 

Dear Sara-Jane,

On behalf of the Devon RABI Committee thank you very much for including us as your Charity last weekend.

We all had a brilliant time and it was far and away the best show we had been at all summer. We met a lot

of people, talked a lot!! and raised awareness of RABI which is very important. John Hoare enjoyed giving

rides on his engine but I think he was most proud of being able to produce baked potatoes for us all out of the smoke box!

Our farming bygones and curiosities were a talking point and created interest. It was good that it was won outright by Alan Noyce.

Could you please send me addresses for Anita and Sally so that I can thank them for the money they raised from the dog show and cake raffle.

Once again thank you and will you please pass on our thanks to the Chairman and all the Committee.

Best wishes

John Yeoman
