VSCC Prescott 4th & 5th August 2007

Written by
Tradition was almost broken this year, the much loved weekend in the heart of the Cotswolds came within a whisker of being cancelled.  The serious flooding that had so decimated this area of the country had left farmland waterlogged and widespread damage to property.  One of the worst aspects was a lack of water over wide areas.  This included the villages around Prescott.  It was not until a few days before when a few days of dry weather gave the ground chance to recover, that the Club decided to go ahead with the meeting.
