2016 Rally Field
The Field being used for the 2016 Woodcote Rally will now be the same one as the 2015 Woodcote Rally. This is because the alternative field we were going to use will not be ready in time due to very wet weather in December and January meaning the grass seed has not yet been sown.

Woodcote Primary School Rally Designs
The kids from Woodcote Primary School have completed their designs for next year's Woodcote Rally and although I couldn't choose a winner I'm including photos of all of the ones they did - although the one with the large beer tent may just about be everyone's favourite!

Woodcote Rally 2015
The 2015 Woodcote Rally is now finished and apart from a few minor things to clear up the rally field has been returned to being a normal farmer's field. There's a bit of wear and tear to the grass but that will soon recover!
Thanks to everyone who came both as exhibitors/traders and members of the general public without whom the Rally could not function.
Thanks as well to all the people behind the scene who make it all happen and to all the marshals who help out over the weekend.
I've had lots of positive feedback already on what a fantastic layout we had this year and one trader even offered me a deposit for next year's Rally so that he could have exactly the same spot. Unfortunately this can't be the case as next year (09 and 10 July 2016) we will be moving into the field next door where farmer Guy Hildred is currently growing corn as he needs to use the current field for cropping (three year cycling and all that if you can remember the basics from your school days!)
So, thanks again to everyone for coming and I welcome any further comments both positive and negative so that we can do even better next year.
The results of the Class Winners will be posted on the website very shorty and then the amounts we are to give away to local charities and worthy good causes will be published around October once we have completed all our calculations and the results approved by the Trustees.
