R.I.P. Mike Grayson

November 3, 2014

Everybody at the Dacorum Steam and Country Fayre is very sad to be told that Mike Grayson, co-owner of Loch Creran Clydesdales, has passed away. Mike not only organised the Heavy Horse’s for the show but also did the commentary in the horse ring.  Mike had a wealth of knowledge and people loved to hear his horse stories. Rest in Peace, Mike, you will be sorely missed xx. Thinking of Kathy and his friends at this sad time xx

Vintage Machinery and Heavy Horse enthusiasts along with their families, flocked to the annual charity event, organised by the Dacorum Machinery and Steam Preservation group, the group are just volunteers from the steam fayre scene who give up their time because they want to help the hospice.
