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.

Awning for sale - NOW SOLD

Post by Admin » Sun, 26 Apr 2015, 8:32 pm

This is just a pre-alert to an awning I'll be selling shortly.

It's been given a complete overhaul by a professional awning company in Bristol (Kingswood Canvas).

It comes with a complete new channel strip, all new (new ladder style) peg down rubbers with extra peg down rubbers added to improve stability in strong winds, new (and extra added) ties for attaching to the awning poles inside and a complete new mud flap all round the bottom.

As you can see in the pictures it's blue and beige, it measures 6.5' by 6.5' and has a roll up window cover on the near side with the original semi-opaque window behind it. I was planning on keeping this awning for myself so it's had over £30 worth of Fabsil awning waterproofer patiently applied by hand, hence the slight mottled effect you can see. This will fade in time with use and a good rain soaking.

It is an original Portafold awning so it's been sat in a storage bag for many years and does have a very slight musty smell due to not being used. Give it a few outings and it'll freshen up. It's all ready to be used this summer, and I can even throw in a few pegs if needed.

If this awning lets in water I will eat my hat!

Chris,

To keep it fair, I've already promised a few people that all three awnings will be eBay auctions. It means everyone has a fair crack at buying them, and I can steer well clear of favouritism accusations :)

I'll be sending out emails to notify everyone when they've been listed, I need to sort out a box and carriage charge first.
