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.

Hydraulic brakes

Anything you've created that didn't come out of the factory.

Well the brakes have been tested and work well. The handbrake and over run brake remains unchanged. I had to make one change. Mini handbrake cable has springs on the ends. I found out these are to keep the handbrake leaver off and the cable tight. Without this the drums get hot and cause the brakes to lock up. I did about 15 mile test on Friday with no issues. Went down some steep hills breaking hard and no pushing was felt at all. So all in all a result. Not before time as we leave for the Isle of Man Thursday about 250 miles. If it gets us there and back we will see you all at retro fest.
