Please note there are a limited number of electrical hook ups available, so be quick with them to avoid disappointment.

 

Also this is the first time we are doing the bookings and passes ourselves, so if you have any issues just give us a shout. I will be sending out the passes myself and I'll probably send them in big batches until we get closer to the time. But if it gets to a couple weeks before the Social and you haven't got your pass then just fire me a PM and I'll get it sorted. :smile:

Did we get any info on why billing cancelled all future car events, we were highly praised for our clean up effort and general conduct last year?

Apparently they want to focus more on family camping rather than hosting car events. But with the reaction it got on Facebook, I can see them back tracking on this decision next year.

As a local boy, I've spent years attending all the car/landrover shows at billing.

i'm gutted about the decision, they say more efforts are going into more family related activities (the car shows already catered for the whole family!). 

A more realistic reason to the stop of the car shows is the on going development of the residential areas (static caravans). These are closing down the actual space available and that means no space for the bigger shows.. I'm holding on and hope they bring a few smaller shows back next year but will have to see

Only tonight I looked @ Billings site and in the events section there are only two listed, a Sealed Knot gathering May day weekend and the Balloon festival in early August, by this time last year there was an event most weekends, so their takings will be down by many £1000's  & that won't make the "bean counters" happy at the end of year balance sheets come in !! So we can only wait and see ?? However the shite we had to go through last year will need to be sorted before thinking of returning !!
