CLOSED New competition - win a family ticket to a steam rally!

On 16th and 17th July there is going to be a steam rally at Needwood Rise Farm, Barton Gate, Barton Under Needwood in Derbyshire.  Barton Gate Charity Steam  is raising funds for the Midlands Air Ambulance.  Admission is £5 for adults, £1 for under 16s, and camping is also available.

 As well as the magnificent engines

and the vintage vehicles and fairground engines

there will be fairground rides, demonstrations, a craft marquee and live entertainment. You can read more about the show at

I have  a family ticket to the event to give away. To enter, simply leave a comment below, including a way to contact you.  The best thing to use is your Twitter name, if you have one, as email addresses left in blogs can be picked up by spammers. If you don't have a Twitter name and have to leave your email address,  I will save your comment without approving it to appear on the blog, so you won't see your entry but it WILL be counted.

For a second entry,  tweet the following, then comment below to tell me you have tweeted.
