Revving up for the 2015 Motor Show

editorial image

The annual motor show being held at Tong showground on August 8th is organised by the Western Isles Transport Preservation Group.

This is the major fundraiser for the group each year and provides the means to meet the costs of running a voluntary organisation.

The show will meet an interest in all forms of transport and its history.

The Transport Preservation Group are presently adapting a building at Marybank to their needs.

This is the former salmon processing factory which will house all the vehicles and artefacts which they have gathered togethe.

Phase 1 of the project is nearing completion and the group hope to use it for the forthcoming social evening programme.

At the show you will be able to see a wide range of transport and interesting exhibits, also local liveried models and a range of present and yesteryear model cars.

A warm welcome is extended to anyone wishing to add to the display. There are also plenty of trophies to be won.

We would ask all exhibitors to register after parking/setting up. Come along for a family day out with amusements for young and old.
