Preston Arms Fair – 11th August 2013

Our August Fair was the second to be held at the new venue following the demise of the Swallow Hotel earlier this year, and we are settling in to this excellent venue very well. With all of our advertising now up to date with the Canberra Club things are getting back to normal now.

The attendance varies from fair to fair, if it’s the weather, holidays the recession it’s hard to say but we were sixty visitors short of the May fair attendance, but we are expecting an excellent attendance for the November the 10th venue, our last fair before Christmas . Most dealers had a great day and virtually  all tables are now re-booked.
 
Craig from Hindle’s Transport at Bolton attended with his 1945 British Army Heavy Transport lorry which is in excellent condition which drew lots of attention, many thanks for that Craig!  We always welcome Military Vehicles and often have original WW2 vehicles turn up !  We are hoping to have Paul Marshalls superb Kettenkrad with us at some point next year, this amazing example is in near mint condition.
 
We would like to say thanks again to Stephen and all the staff at the Canberra club who make our fair very welcome and we hope to see many existing and new collectors in November, please have a safe journey to and from the event.
 
All the best of collecting from Robert and all at Preston Arms Fair
