    Of to The Southern M/H show at Romsey Nr Southampton. We have never been to this small show so thought we would give it a go. Anyone else attending. The wife has booked us in the Disabled area. We are then going to a site at Birdham Nr Chichester for a few days. Do hope the weather will be kind to us some of the time.

    Hope it's better than last year, I went down for the day via motorcycle and was disappointed with how small this show was to be honest.

    If you shout real loud I'll be able to hear you from where I am in the New Forest, slightly closer to Salisbury than Romsey.

    Best of luck with the weather and do have a look at Chichester Harbour when you are down in Birdham it is a lovely part of the world.

    Good thinking, the Crown and Anchor is at Dell quay but the slightly more expensive Millstream Hotel in Bosham has an excellent restaurant.

    Very true, we frequented them all fairly often when we lived in Bracklesham Bay :) The Kings Head in Birdham was good too - think it's an Indian restaurant now though ?

    Sitting in the dentist's waiting room this morning flicking through the Romsey Advertiser as you do when I noticed this :-

    Was just wondering if any Funsters were still there overnight on the Sunday & saw or heard anything. If so, please call PC Aaron Wickes, Hedge End Police Station on 101, or crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

    Might sound like a daft question, but where IS Chichester harbour?
    Just spent four great days in the area (at the CC&C site at Southbourne).

    Gave the bus pass a bashing on the 700 route which stopped just outside the site. Also went via Chichester to the air museum at Tangmere. Missed out on the harbour - obviously.

    Great part of the world though. Will go back.

    I was doing well on the way in until the steward stopped me and then I sunk in and had to be towed the last 10 metres to the pitch, but managed to drive out under my own steam.

    Hi. This was our first and last time. Show very small and not many stands. We did get a couple of bits. We decided to leave Sunday morning and go onto a site at Birdham about 30 miles from the show. We watched loads of vans being towed off in the mud. I was very lucky and found 2 very large cardboard boxes jammed under front wheels and got the 100 yards to the gavel road. Very lucky. Will not go back.
