Hi all,

although it was smaller than in previous years, we did go to Volksworld on the Sunday and enjoyed it.

Yes, there was a gap where we have been parked on the Summer Lawn in the past Sad  we could easily have got our five vans on there each day.



In the run-up to the event, I did speak to a trader to see if they were going to be there; they weren't.  The costs had been jacked up and the location they were offered was too far off the beaten track (something they had suffered from in previous years; indeed, the last time they went was two years ago, when we were there in force on the Saturday and Sunday).

We bumped into OldSkoolboy, who was camping in the car park at the front.

We spoke to lots of traders and got lots of ideas, leading to our latest purchase - a proper fridge!  We also spoke to traders about a whole range of things (very useful if you're looking for ideas etc.); we praised Neil at Litesteer for his great power steering - our best investment.



The benefits of Meguiars:-



One trader I have to big up, is Autocamp (aka www.flagseller.co.uk ).  We bought a 8m Spirit of Air flagpole from them at Volksworld two/three years ago and, last year in Lymington, it came down in a high wind and the bottom section cracked from top to bottom  Sad   I contacted Spirit of Air, but they don't do spares.  I told the bloke at Autocamp what had happened and he said "come back at the end of the show and I can give you a replacement, from one of my show poles".

Sure enough, he was as good as his word and, as he took down a 8m pole, handed me over the very bottom section - no charge! (I even got a piece of free Sandown park mud!)  I did want to pay something, so bought a pole bag from him.

When we think of some suppliers who seem to be just be in it for the money, let's remember there's loads of good guys out there and let's support them with our purchases.  cheers

It would be good to be back at the event next year; the Summer lawn area is crying out for us!
