Preston Arms Fair – Sunday 4th November 2018

The November Fair was the final venue for this year and it proved to be very well attended and the feedback from visitors and dealers alike was excellent, all tables had been booked and with a number of new dealers there was a wide variety of Military collectables available to buy, sell or exchange.

The £ 50-00 Dealers Raffle was won by Nick the Knife, well done Nick !!

It is sad to report in October the passing of Lou Gottfreund,  a very well liked and well known Military Dealer who supported our Fair for the first four years, Lou will be sadly missed by many people…

The problem of the Charnock Richards Services,  where you can access the Park Hall Hotel southbound over the motorway but there is no access from the services to the Hotel northbound .This still is in place  and would now seem to be a fixture for the foreseeable future. We understand that it is possible to enter the services southbound on the M6, go to the Hotel for say eight hours then go back to the services and off on the M6 Southbound. This action can trigger the Number Plate Recognition Camera twice, it thinking you have been on the services all day and thus a £ 100 parking charge ensues . Any issue of this can be avoided by turning right out of the Hotel and turning first right and following the road to Junction 27 and then continuing south on the M6..We hope this helps…..If you wish to travel northbound on the M6 you can go southbound on the M6  to Junction 27 and then turn northbound or turn right out of the Hotel and drive through the country to junction 28…

Well, Christmas is almost on us yet again !  We would like to wish all of our dealers and collectors/ visitors and members of staff at the Hotel a wonderful Christmas and a superb New Year of 2019

Our next fair will be held on Sunday the 3rd March 2019

As always drive safely and see you in March !
