This morning the 08 machine was loaded to go down to London for The Lord Mayor's Parade on 14th November. We have been asked to enter the machine by The Worshipful Company of Farmers. After the season it had a thorough clean before being taken to Fakenham for its overhaul. Once that was completed PMC then touched up various parts to make it shine. You will see that there are "Yes Peas" banners on it. If you Google "The Lord Mayor's Show" you will find a lot of information regarding the history of the event. If you are of a mind BBC do broadcast the event from 10.45am on 14th November BBC1. So let's hope there is a bit of coverage. We are No 12 in the procession sandwiched by a horse drawn fire engine and an old bus. Richard Longs are now on their way down, stopping at Stansted before having a final look to check for any obstacles on the route in London. There will be more pictures to follow!
