After a very bad broadband couple of weeks in good old Kimmeridge, the joys of living in the country it’s a very big sorry again to our regular readers, for the lack of blogs, still here is a short report of a truly brilliant show. The Purbeck Rally took place on the 10th 11th and 12th of August and what a show it was. It was the 40th Rally which started life in a field in a small village called Church Knowle it’s the next village along to our village. It soon out grew this field and moved to a site in Ridge near Wareham and then to its home now at the site in Wareham. The show this year had a great mix of vintage vehicles from tractors,cars,lorries and live steam engines. In the evening the entertainment was just stunning. A chap called Simon Chainey who is the most brilliant fire stick entertainer, well they say a picture is a thousand words so here are a few.

Well what can you say but truly brilliant.



This guy even skips with fire!!!


More on the show in later blogs broadband permitting.


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.
