Preston Arms Fair – 1st March 2020

Our latest fair on the 1st March was probably the best fair we have ever had for both footfall and collector / dealer satisfaction, many reporting excellent buying and selling deals, which is superb and what we strive for.

Of course the event was overshadowed by the out of the blue Covid-19 Corona Virus which first came to the fore in December. The ramifications of this threat cannot be underestimated , it is very dangerous as can be seen by the rapid spread throughout the word. As this is written the UK has circa 457 people infected and six deaths…three weeks ago we had none !

How does this affect our fair ? We have seven dates agreed with the Park Hall Hotel until the end of 2021 and it will be on Government instructions due to the virus whether these fairs go ahead. You can check our website of course and the Government Statements that will be issued…Let’s hope this will be short lived and that the affected recover to good health.

The usual dealers Raffle was drawn with two £ 30 prizes,  the winners were Malcolm Bowers and Gary Parr..well done !!

Our next fair is scheduled for the Bank Holiday Monday the 25th May 2020 and we wish you all reading this and your families the very best and we hope to see you all again soon. As usual happy collecting!!
