I would like to thank everyone involved in putting on such a great show in Lavenham last weekend.
I know how much hard work and effort it takes to put the show on and I'm sure the relaxed and calm
atmosphere in the town took a lot to achieve behind the scenes.

It was nice to spend the day (Saturday) wondering around the town with my camera for a change
and seeing the show as a visitor for the first time. It really made me appreciate what has been
achieved by all involved over the years.

Even the rain showers didn't dampen (pun intended) everyones spirits too much and got everyone
together and chatting while under cover.

I thought the use of Lavenham Hall was a great addition to the show and will give scope for the
show to grow in the future.

Again, well done to everyone involved. :d

Thanks for a superb event, although the weather was odd!!
Very well done...

You can see some photographs here http://www.fgs.clara.net/ 

I thought the VW trail was a good way to link the displays, and well done.

Thanks to everyone behind the scenes who made this year at Lavenham such an enjoyable event.

Yes an awe-inspiring vintage VW event. I actually went along this year, on the Saturday. Alas, not in a vintage Beetle though, a friend drove me down in his Type llll or was it Type lV (I lose count of the type after Type lll).

Great also to see some old faces from back in the day. Rod Sleigh, who although was very busy didn't fail to recognise me after the many years since we last met, even with my disguise of glasses and a cap. Also met up with long time friend and once well known VW columnist, Harvey Simpson. We both walked the clever VW trial but some how came off course and trudged back to the VW autojumble field through a rather muddy area.

I certainly know what I've missed in previous years not going to Lavenham. Needed to be there two days to take it all in I think.:beer:

Hi Russ,

The Historic Club who took the show over and ran it in 2016 now no longer feel the event is feasible, so they were telling people it’s not going ahead. The chairman of the club Charles Oldroyd has done a lot of work on it already and believes the event should go ahead - so Charles and I are teaming up to make it a pre67vw event and have had a lot of discussion on how to make it viable.

We’ve already had loads of offers of help which is fantastic, so all I can say at the moment is watch this space.
