This weekend part of the team will be at the Purbeck Rally in Wareham Dorset. This is truly a brilliant show with something for the whole family. Classic cars, tractors, steam engines large and small, military vehicles craft stalls and trade stands. The show dates are Friday 10th August, Saturday 11th August and Sunday 12th August. Gates open early so come on down and enjoy an excellent country show. Pop along and say hello to the crew take a look around one of our Landrovers and the response quad. A big big thank you to Donna, Richard, Keith and all the rest of the guys and girls of the Purbeck Rally team for your support of KERV. Pictures of the weekend will follow in later blogs.
The Landrover 109 looking very shiny, sometimes I think we have shares in a polish company.
A bonnet to eat your dinner off, just no scratching the paint work.
Last Friday ( 3rd August ) saw a very rare occurrence the Welsh Family left the village for a rare day out. As Sub officer Welsh is a bit of a train nut along with his nephew Dan it was decided that a trip to the West Somerset Railway was a good idea. So ensuring that the village was in safe hands off they set. Arriving at Bishops Lydeard train station to catch the 10:10 to Minehead, being pulled by a Manor class loco as informed by Dan, they set off on a 20 mile trip to Minehead. They decided to break the return journey at Watchet where they enjoyed a blow out picnic with a side order of chips. While eating a familiar blue and white sign came into view, a coastguard station of course Sub Officer Welsh had to go and have a look. He got to the station to find a CRO ( Coastguard Rescue Officer ) cleaning some Mud rescue gear after a training session. This chap made the Welsh’s very welcome, so thank you to the CRO at Watchet, I’m sorry they didn’t get your name. More on Watchet Coastguard in later blogs. So if your reading this chaps thanks again from the Welsh’s.

With a busy weekend ahead for the team at the Purbeck Rally in Wareham Dorset they need a rest after such a hectic day. More on the Purbeck Rally in later blogs.It’s a great day out, come and say hi the dates are 10th 11th an 12th of August.

A great shot of our Landrover leaving our training evening out of the ford and through the trees.
Just about to cross the ford. After the last few days of rain this would now not be possible.
Muddy wheels the landrover has made it across, the Station officer said he could do with some therapy cleaning to do.
More shots of the fine fellows of KERV and Bluebell Railway Fire Service.
