Here’s hoping that it won’t be as wet underfoot on Thursday at the Great Dorset Steam fair as this scene back in 1976. In those days the show was held at the end of September and was usually a victim of autumnal weather. The move to the weekend after the bank holiday does at least mean the weather should be warmer, if not always dry. The kit is sorted, the batteries charged, the Hunters are in the boot, I’m ready for Thursday!
