People got the chance to see vintage machinery in action at the Whiterig Vintage Machinery Club Working Weekend.

Club president Alex Smith (15) said it was the first time the club had run the event.

“It was good for our first event,” Alex said.

The event was organised so people could see how the vintage machinery worked, he said.

“Lots of people don’t get to see the machinery working.”

He was happy with the turnout, he said.

“We had about 30 people each day.”

The club had a huge amount of vintage machinery on show, Alex said.

“We had a hammer mill, an oat crusher, a firewood saw wrench, a hay baler and a tractor parade.”

Saturday ran smoothly but on Sunday a few events had to be changed because of the rain, he said.

“We couldn’t help that, but it all worked out.”

He was interested in running another working weekend next year, Alex said.

“I would like to but I will have to talk to the others.”

Overall, it was a good weekend, he said.

“I was reasonably happy with it.”
