M.D.T.E.M.G. held their annual gas up on Saturday 5th October at Morchard Road by kind permission of the Bruce family.

The day dawned fine with a weather forecast of rain later in the day. Members gathered with their exhibits of tractors, stationary engines and industrial machines. This annual event involves a local tractor run of approximately 8 miles, an auto jumble (to enable members to share, barter, sell/purchase various spare parts with their fellow members), a working demonstration of stationary engines and equipment plus excellent refreshments.

The day was successful with welcome participation from members which we hope to repeat in 2020.

Our thanks to our hosts for the use of their excellent facilities.
