Her­itage ve­hi­cles on show

Cockburn Gazette - - STREET WATCH -

OLD ve­hi­cles which helped power the golden era of mar­ket gar­den­ing in Cock­burn will be on dis­play at Man­ning Park in Hamil­ton Hill on Sun­day.

The Her­itage Ve­hi­cle and Ma­chin­ery Day, which will co­in­cide with Na­tional Mo­tor­ing Her­itage Day and run just a few days be­fore Internatio­nal Mu­se­ums Day, will fea­ture vin­tage cars, trac­tors, trucks, and a few other spe­cial ve­hi­cles.

The Azelia Ley Home­stead Mu­seum will also be open, as will the wagon house.

The 5km Man­ning Park Trail Run for char­ity will also take place at the park on the same day, as well as Patch­work in the Park.

Her­itage Ve­hi­cle and Ma­chin­ery Day or­gan­iser Duane Sain said the first two events had proven pop­u­lar, a trend he was hop­ing would con­tinue.

“It’s a great way to con­nect peo­ple with the past,” he said.

“Events like these show peo­ple the ve­hi­cles and ma­chin­ery that helped grow the City.”

Mr Sain’s fa­ther, Jure, still farms his land in Wat­tleup us­ing older ve­hi­cles.

The pro­duce is then sent to mar­kets around Perth, in­clud­ing Can­ning Vale and Stock Road.

“It’s got to the stage where a lot of peo­ple have no idea where there food comes from,” Mr Sain said.

“It’s great to show them there are still peo­ple like us here.”

Mr Sain said peo­ple in­ter­ested in show­ing off their car or ma­chin­ery can do so.

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone 0419 040 766. The event runs from 10am to 4pm.
