    Parking update:
    Several people commented at the Stafford show yesterday that there may not be any parking.

    There will be free Parking in the car park behind "Advantage" offices, in Coley Place, opposite the Salvation Army hall on the same roundabout.

    There are also a few invalid parking places outside the Salvation Army hall.

    For Sat Nav: 87 Castle St, Reading RG1 7SN

    Is this parking sanctioned by the car park owners as it appears to be a private car park?

    Don't want to get clamped.

    Hi,
    Yes the parking is private, but we have keys for it. The Salvation Army use it all the time as an overflow.
    We will try to get some signs up nearer the time (But we need to limit who can get the free parking!)

    Does this mean there is not enough parking for all show visitors or that you want to keep other members of the public out?

    Thanks to all who came to the show.
    It was great to meet up with everyone after such a long time.
    I have had several emails from people who liked the new venue. we are aiming at having next year's show there as well. This should be on 23rd April 2022, getting back to the usual time of year., all things being equal!
    A couple of pics from the day attached. I'm afraid I really was too busy to get many taken - these were from when it was a bit quieter!
