Time certainly flies when you are having fun and all of a sudden Swedish Day is just over a week away.
I think everything is ready, signs made, trophies ordered, raffle prizes purchased. One thing we can not book is the weather so fingers crossed for a sunny day.
There is a Saturday evening meal if you are travelling from afar and staying the night before.
Alex and I look forward to seeing you next weekend.
SWEDISH DAY, 10TH MAY 2015
In 2008; Alex and I had an idea, “We should start a show for Volvos and Saabs”, so after quite a few visits to the local pub Swedish Day was born.
On a Sunday in May, it all started when a gathering of Volvos and Saabs began to arrived for a pleasant get-together at Haynes Motor Museum in Somerset.
This year, 2015, sees us inviting you to our 8th Swedish Day UK.
In 2014 we located to a new venue, Haslebury Mill, just outside Crewkerne. A fantastic old 19th Century Mill with lots of history everywhere you look and beautiful photographs to be taken.
The show is organised for those interested in Swedish vehicles including commercial vehicles as well as all other Swedish products.
The main Swedish Day will take place on the Sunday but as in all the other years we plan to have our Saturday evening meal cooked by the chefs at the Mill.
Limited camping will be available for free if wanted.
Also for the first time last year we introduced a vehicle fee of £5.00.
This was to help us with running costs and monies left over were donated to charity.
The chosen charity for 2015 is “Cancer Research UK”
Each vehicle owner will be given a raffle ticket, as a thank you, for a chance of a nice gift.
On Sunday, the chefs will once more cook up a breakfast for those arriving hungry as well as a Hog Roast at lunch time. The Mill’s bar will also be available during the day.
There will be an area available for a few trade stands and auto jumble alongside our sponsor’s displays.
As always the event will be a leisurely day out, come along, park up and meet friends old and new, chat, admire, eat, drink and chat a bit more.
There will be a few prizes given out, favourite Saab/Volvo, favourite truck, furthest travelled etc. Maybe a Koenigsegg may be seen.
Application forms can be found on the web site; however they will also be in the presentation pack on the day if required.
Thank you very much for supporting Swedish Day and helping it to grow.
Alex and I look forward to seeing you on the 10th May.
