Methven Care Trust - Land Rover to celebrate 70 years

Land Rover to celebrate 70 years

25-Mar-2018

On Sunday March 25th, Land Rover vehicles from all over New Zealand converged on the Methven A&P showgrounds to celebrate seventy years of the Land Rover vehicle and brand.

During the course of the day enthusiasts were invited to come along with a Land Rover vehicle to join in the display which was the largest held to date.  Land Rover vehicles include the well recognised Series and Defender models, all Range Rover and Discovery models, the Freelander, Sport and Evoque.  In fact any vehicle bearing the Rover name was welcome.

The day showcased the evolution of the most basic and hardy vehicle that evolved in to a prestigious luxury 4x4.  Vehicles lined up in their respective models for display, but throughout the day there was an option of participating in a simple gymkhana to show driving skills.  Further entertainment included 'Capstan' winch displays including a tug-of-war, Land Rover fire engines, oldest vehicle v's youngest, and a working Rover gas turbine jet engine. 

Our Methven Care Trust volunteers were invited to co-ordinate the gate entry which was gold coin donation, at the end of the day we received a very sizeable donation to the value of $1,971.30.
