Best of British - Monday 28 August 2017

Postby 4008 » Sat Aug 05, 2017 11:43 am

Our Best of British event is back at Fimber Halt on Bank Holiday Monday 28 August 2017 from 11 - 4, and its bigger than ever!

Once again, we are pleased to be hosting Bridlington and The Wolds Morris Minors Owners Club, and Hull Old Skool Mini's. In addition to these wonderful cars, Bluebell Farm Meats will be on BBQ duties! As a new feature for this year, we will also have the 00 Gauge Live Steam Club that showcase the beautiful live steam models manufactured by Hornby. If that wasn't enough, there will also be a bouncy castle for the children, and those from the ages of 7 upwards can have a go at our "drive a mini digger" (for a small charge). Other display vehicles may arrive on the day, so please don't miss out, and pay us a visit!

Access to the site and our visitor centre is free, and centre stage will be taken by our locomotive Sir Tatton Sykes who will be giving cab rides (for a small charge) throughout the day!

You can read more about the event, and download a poster here:

To echo Phils comments, many thanks to everyone that came along and supported the event, be them volunteers, visitors, or exhibitors.

It was such fun, and a great day was had by all!
