Hi guys, I was directed here by bazzateer after posting in the intro section. He suggested 'popping over' as I'm looking to get myself my 1st Imp, so it would be a great chance to meet people and see some cars!

If only it was a case of just popping over! It'll be 2 hours on the train, which of course would also mean somehow getting from Abergavenny station to Pandy without a car... My other issue is the only day I could make it would be the Sunday, would everybody be packing up and leaving before I'd have a chance to get there? :lol:

Aw really? That would be great! The earliest train will get me to Abergavenny at 13:02. Then there's a train every hour up til about 7, so that gives me a few good hours to come and play :)

I won't be camping no, Sunday's the only day I've got off that week.. sigh.

Thats ok Pog,pity you couldn't get there a bit earlier you could have seen the cars lined up for voting and Trophy awards,there may be a run out in the afternoon if the weathers good so a lot of the cars will be out and about,the Trophies will be awarded about 11.00 am if you can get there for then and maybe get a run out with someone in an imp?

Sunday trains in around here are non existent until 11am... Shropshire doesn't work like the rest of the country haha. So that's a shame I'll miss the main event :(

Ha, awesome Noddy! That would certainly make the trip worthwhile, looking forward to it now :)

Roy Blunt and Phil and Lesley have very kindly sorted out a run for the Friday and a very nice run it is too,I won't steal their thunder but will instead let one of them tell you all about it, I'm sure they will be along shortly to tell you more.
Many thanks to all who helped with this from the Gurner family.

The Van is booked in for a rolling road session to set it all up next week so fingers-crossed it will make it :twisted:

We haven't made final arrangements for the Friday yet, but we should be able to let you know by the weekend. We're planning to go to the Transporter Bridge at Newport and Cwmcarn Scenic Drive. This is a local attraction run by the Forestery Commission which involves a 7 mile drive around the top of the mountains between Risca and Cwmbran, including Twmbarlum, an ancient hillfort. The views are stunning on a good day and you can see several counties from the highest point. There is a small entrance fee.
We're won't be leaving early as Philip and I have to collect a trailer, pick up Hilda and bring her over to Pandy first, so it will probably be late morning.

Also- There's an incredible Cider farm only 20 minutes or so away from Pandy. They do some awesome cider (still, fizzy, medium, dry, sweet, etc) and are a really friendly bunch of guys. I doubt there is time in the itinerary for a full blown trip there (if we wanted they could do us a tour and show us how it's made and have plenty of space for us to rock up there en masse etc etc, assuming we gave them sufficient warning) as I only recently mentioned it to Gurner long after everything was planned, but if people want to pop to the shop and grab some, I will be going there at some point so feel free to join me!

Re: WICKED WELSH DATES 2013 TRAILERS....

Post by GURNSIMPS » Sat Sep 14, 2013 8:18 am

I have read on this thread that quite a few people are bringing trailers along this year,for obvious reasons trailer will have to be left in the carpark and not by tents/caravans,we might be a bit tight for space this year.

Hi all, looking forward to coming to this years WWW in the Saltire coupe for a change, the last few visits have been in the veggy powered members of my fleet :D I'm probably looking at a fuel bill in the region of £150 rather than the usual tenner but it will be worth it to have the Imp there :D It will be my first outing with the ex Bob Hawse Paradiso folding camper too, should be fun as the bed is currently 6" shorter than I am!! A full interior revamp is on the cards but I won't have time to do that before WWW.

See you all there :wink:

Myself and Adam have just been up The Rising Sun to see if everything is ok for the weekend,Tracey says we can put trailers in the enclosure at the bottom of the field to save filling the car park with them.
Who is Mr and Mrs Harris booked in for our Weekend with a hook up? I'm guessing Phil and Lesley but not sure if you are Harris or not?
Matt and Tracey are doing a carvery now on a Sunday if anyone wants Sunday Lunch.
All systems go as far as our weekend is concerned...

I just realised that Phil and Lesley are Smith's and not Harris,we have Mr and Mrs Harris booked in from Wednesday,anyone know who this is? There is no problem its just that I have a list of people needing hook ups and wondered which couple this is?

I'll be coming down on the Thursday and staying until Monday.
If anybody wants any parts from Dr Bob delivered, do let him know and I'll bring them down. As I am luxuriating in one the rooms at the pub over the weekend, I'll be able to bring my box trailer, so plenty of space for stuff.
Likewise, if anybody has any bits to donate for reconditioning, bring them to WWW and I'll take them back to Bob Allan's.
TTFN,
Bob.
