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.

Awning pole attachments

I can't lay claim to finding these, credit goes to Bill Voisy down in Newton Poppleford, Devon. A great replacement for those rusted out awning pole fittings on the back of your Portafold or Ansfold. It's a superb retro look fitting that doesn't look out of place on a Portafold. It's actually a bathroom fitting and probably available from B&Q, Homebase and all good bathroom accessory shops.

Pictures 1 & 2: The base screws on with 3 screws. (I'd probably be inclined to swap the supplied screws for stainless steel ones.)
Then the top screws on to cover the screws up.
Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
