The Big 60th Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2020)

Help us set a new world record at the big 60th birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there next year. As of last year we have a new area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 7th, 8th, 9th of August 2020 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me to get your pitch saved.

Re: Help with erection...

Thanks for the replys folks. I think we've pretty much sussed putting it up with two people. As for one person (Shelly) I think it's a case of more Spinach or, wait 'till Steves winch idea hit's the market.

Thanks again, Billy

Re: Help with erection...

Thanks for that, most helpful. On a similar theme to the prop idea; what about two props? If I fit 'lifting eyes' to all the corners of the roof, and insert two hooks fitted onto the ends of poles, would that seem like a good idea do you think? Then two people can prop up the roof, one end at a time...

Re: Roof lifter

A fantastic device Sir! If you go into production, could I order one please? It really is exactly what we're looking for as we both struggle putting the roof on our Portafold. And we must be wimps because our roof is lighter than yours! I've tried the Spinach thing but I'm that weak, I can't get the...

Help with erection...

Helloooo. We are now the very proud owners of a Portafold. It really is nice but.....the shine was knocked off it a little last night as we found it a struggle to put up. I should explain that I'm only 5ft 7 and Shell is probably 5ft 4ish. Also, I have osteo-arthritis of the spine and as such it was...

Re: Hellooooo - Portafold Wanted

Futher up-date; Hoooooray! I/we have a little Portafold! Well, I say 'little' but they're probably all the same size but 'little' compared to the Cheltenham caravan that I thought i'd have to buy 'coz I never thought i'd get to own a Portafold. We bought it off a smashing chap who is a member on her...
