World of Country Life Club Display

Written by Roy Best

This is our second year of displaying some bikes at the World of Country Life Museum at Sandy Bay nr Exmouth with the display organized by the Westcountry Classic Vehicle Club.

There were plenty or classic vehicles and models on display with the Museum playing a big part of the day. We only managed six bikes this year and were dwarfed by two very large trikes, Des & Irene Heckle held the fort for most of the day as I was off with the Grandchildren who came along for the day. Plenty to see here for the family including a traditional Punch & Judy Show who entertained the youngsters, no video games here just pure fun.

Many other things were happening including the falconry display, birds of prey, animal petting area, safari train with feeding the deer and play areas. Live music for the day by the George Formby Society with Dr Who's transport on display and real life Daleks collecting for Help the Heroes, no children were exterminated during the coarse of the day, but plenty got wet.

Bikes displayed were Garelli-Euromoped, Francis Barnett Powerbike, Honda Novio, Cymota, Powerpak and Berini Cyclemotor. Bikes displayed by Des, Irene & Roy.
