New Lawn Mower Book

Club member Clive Gravett has published a book about the history of the lawn mower and his own passion for collecting. Two Men Went to Mow  is the story of two men, born 157 years apart, both obsessed with the lawn mower: Edwin Beard Budding (1796-1846) its ingenious inventor, and Clive, whose own interest in the mower and its inventor has led to a museum and charity both dedicated to his hero, not to mention his vast collection of mowers spanning 150 years.

You can order copies of the book direct from Clive by clicking on this link. Buying direct in this way will ensure the maximum amount of support for Clive's Budding Foundation Charity.

Two Men Went to Mow is one of a small, but growing, number of books about mower history and collecting. We've recently revamped the list of these on our website. The page contains links to order the books.

Another Successful Annual Rally

We had another brilliant Annual Rally at Milton Keynes Museum on the weekend of 19/20 May. This year the weather was sunny and warm, which made a welcome change, and there were loads of really interesting mowers on show.

You can see a selection of the mowers and some of the members who were present by clicking these links.

See who won some of the event's big prizes.

There is also a list of the auction results from the Sunday morning.
