Event History - 3

Each year, we have tried to add some other aspect to the event, and now we generally have about 6 bands/entertainers performing and the early simple BBQ is now a fully fledged catering extravaganza.

As the years rolled by, the Harvest Home has changed hands :-

After Geoff and Georgia, there was Maria, then Craig and Jackie.

Now we have the lovely couple Darren and Dawn with Nicki as the pub manager.

All these landlords and landladies have always given their full support to the event.

In 2009, we expanded activities to include some ‘village fete’ events on the small field opposite the pub.
By this time, the average number of cyclists taking part exceeded 150.

2010 - Our 10 anniversary  !!!

That year, we aimed even higher. We had between 15 and 20 classic motor cycles attending, as well as between 10 and 15 classic MG sports cars.

We also were very lucky in obtaining the services of the Mayor of Winchester, who assisted with the raffle prize-giving.

We went into the 21st century in 2010, with the introduction of a web site, which was on the back of one  belonging to a charity we supported.
