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.

Rubber Coated Foam Strips

Post by Gordon McLaren » Sat, 19 Jul 2008, 2:50 pm

Found a supplier for the 4 rubber coated vertical foam corner strips for the Portafold. Mine were well past their best, either splitting or perishing at the ends. Found a small trade stall at my local show (Scottish vintage vehicle show, Glamis) who had a sample board with all types of foam covered rubber section. The one i chose and ordered was fractionally thicker, but as it turns out this is better anyway. Received a length of 5 metres today and fitted in about 20 minutes. 4 metres would have done, but i've got a spare metre now. :D

Here's his adress Mr G. Watson, Key Restoration Services, 8 Derwent View, Brackenholme Business Park, Nr Selby, North Yorks YO8 6EL
Telephone 0775 3856092

No website, as speaking to him he seems to be busy enough attending all the shows in the year.

Cost £4.20 metre + carriage Part number to Quote SCR026
