THERE was plenty to interest all the family at the annual Pallot Steam, Motor and General Museum fair, with everything from displays of classic and vintage cars and tractors to the sale of Island wonders made on site.

The event also provided attendees with the perfect opportunity to look around the fascinating museum although, this year, train rides were not available, as its steam mechanism is currently undergoing maintenance.

Members of the Jersey Land Rover Owners’ Club also tested the manoeuvrability of their 4x4s down ditches and over banks, while the Jersey Model Tug Association presented both marine and land-based model vehicles.

Delicious delicacies were on sale throughout the day. Pictured helping to make them are Selena and Natalie Smith

Thanks to the autumn sunshine over the weekend, the museum was also the venue for the Jersey Classic Vehicle Club’s annual barbecue.
