Ev­ery year on Wai­tangi Day, the clubs and so­ci­eties that make up Brayshaw Her­itage Park in Blen­heim open their doors to the pub­lic and give ev­ery­one the op­por­tu­nity to en­joy their group’s ac­tiv­i­ties. From the Rock and Min­eral Club through to the Wood­work­ers Guild, and even two dif­fer­ent gauges of rail­way, there was some­thing for ev­ery­one.

The an­nual open day was once again well sup­ported by both par­tic­i­pants and pub­lic. The weather played ball, and around 150 cars of all ages were on dis­play on Patch­ett’s Green at the rear of the Vin­tage Car Club head­quar­ters. From vet­eran cars to cars of the ’70s and ’80s, there was some­thing on show to bring a smile to ev­ery dial.

The Vin­tage Farm Ma­chin­ery Club also put on a very com­pre­hen­sive dis­play of work­ing farm im­ple­ments. A gold-coin do­na­tion was all that was re­quired for a great day’s en­ter­tain­ment for young and old.
