Good very early morning.

 

How is the weather with you all?

 

It was god awful here in Halifax on Sunday morning. We were upset to miss the booking for yesterday, being our usual 2nd Sunday in February but looking out the window, yesterday morning,

I was pretty glad! That's water pouring upwards into the stormy blast. We did once have the show in the snow, and it did not go well. Next Sunday, "gusty winds and light rain showers", it says here. So, that must be good.

 

Here is a list of traders:

I'll be coming over for the show and looking forward to it.

 

Just a thought on the show being a bit smaller than recent years, as far as traders are concerned; could that in any way owe to it being so close to the Bolton show? Seems we have two big shows in the North West of England catchment area and they're only a couple of weeks apart.

Thinking of making the trip over with IPMS Lancashire on Sunday,

Anyone with local knowledge suggest suitable parking  given that the large car park (Northbridge carpark)  at the leisure centre is closed to general public parking between 5am and 5pm for the car boot sale?

Thanks

Street Parking is free on Sundays.

Dean Clough road is closed at the North Bridge junction due to gas works.

Hello.

 

Thanks for the interest.

 

We will have a parking space for each trader and club/SIG. If you are coming independently, I should plan not to get there before 10.30. If you arrive any time after 10.30, you can park in Sainsbury's for 2.5 hours and move your car into the carpark vacated by the car boot sale any time after 1300. All parking if free in Halifax on Sunday.

RG: the leisure centre staff assured us last year that the signs saying no parking 5am till 5pm are simply wrong. I see the website link, but can say that the car boot sale ends at 1300 and the parking guys from the council go then too. I'll check this out again and post here

I wouldn't say you're wrong, Mr.Filler. We have thought about moving the show but its not so simple: see the EMMC/Hinckley website. The Bolton show has grown a lot. It is good. Currently we're about where we were four or five years ago. 

 

As of today we're a little bigger. We have a late addition to the traders list above:

 

Mitch's Military Models: www.mitchesmilitarymodels.co.uk

 

I hope I haven't spoken too soon about the weather! Currently we've got "Gusty Winds and Heavy Rain" first thing, according to the beeb. "Light Rain Showers and a Fresh Breeze," from 0900.

PARKING UPDATE!

 

The council staff this morning have confirmed with me that the 5am till 5pm thing is indeed incorrect.

 

The large carpark, where the car boot sale goes on is indeed open from 1300 and free.

 

Given the weather forecast, they tell me that there is likely to be practically no car boot sale, but I still wouldn't count on parking there before 1300.

 

See you Sunday I hope.

Roy,

 

Thanks. I was just getting on line to post just that. I hope that means we can just park anywhere, but we'll see. I'll keep posting should we learn more at the set-up tomorrow

I presume that means no hot breakfast baps then?

 

If the sale is off we don't get breakfast after a two or three hour drive, from the food caravan

 

Is there another source of nosh in the vicinity do you know?

 

 

 

(No wonder I'm of the portly persuasion...). 😂😂😂
