JJ and I attended a show and autojumble at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park near Petersfield, Hampshire today. We hadn't been before so thought it would make a nice day out, especially with the lovely weather that was forecast.
The event was organised by the South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society. Over 250 cars, commercials, motorcycles and military vehicles of all shapes, sizes and makes, dating from 1903 to 1986 were billed as attending and I think they were all there. There were also plenty of stalls -mainly autojumbly (we think they easily equalled the recent Popham show), and we spent a good part of our day perusing it all and finding some good bargains. The prices were pretty competitive. There were plenty of refreshments, including the bar and field kitchen provided by forum member Deadly Derek and his family with their Diamond T truck diner. A brass band, a fairground organ, a Punch and Judy show and a children’s roundabout and bouncy castle helped keep everyone entertained. It was a really well organised event -reasonably priced, (£4), and well attended by both exhibitors and the general public. We’d definitely go again.
We bumped into many familiar faces and got to chat to lots of others who were quite taken with Alfie our Bull Terrier, but what's new?!
All in all, we had a lovely day.
