Bonfire Rally – and the latest news on Atlas

The bonfire rally went well – despite the wind in the late afternoon and early evening (and I’m sure I wasn’t the only one thinking that the marquee was at risk of becoming a large kite!) for the fireworks the weather was as good as we could ask.

As usual, our firework providers did us proud.

After the rally, Ivor and Adrian took Atlas up to Norton Canes to have a new bottom.

Once the critical structural stuff is done, we can get her looking a bit smarter than she does at the moment.
