The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely 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 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 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 (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Where To Start

Obviously, from the top and work your way down.
My first job, order new handles and buy four footman's loops. After ordering the parts my next job was to repair the previous repair.

Someone, in the past, repaired a split in the roofing area; a good enough repair but I wasn't happy as they had fibreglassed on the outside as well as the inside so I decided to remove the fibreglass repair from the outside. This took some time, gently easing the inner and outer apart. The end result, as you can see, was quite favourable.

After rubbing down all the unnecessary fibreglass, here we have the split ready for it's next stage: a thin skin of filler rubbed down with some fine wet & dry ready for when I rub the rest of the roof down, then a coat of paint.
