Courtesy of Steve G7VOH (one of my amateur radio colleagues – Kernow Photography) here is a set of photos taken around the Trade area of Jamboree 2012. Many thanks Steve, much appreciated.
Unfortunately I did not manage to get around the trade area personally but having seen the photographs I missed a treat as John managed to secure a really excellent mix of traders for us this year. Securing traders for the show is always a difficult task as we are so far from the major centres of population. This has been further exacerbated by the economic climate and general lack of disposable income within the populous.
If you agree John did a fabulous job enticing so many diverse traders this year add a comment below thanking him for his sterling efforts.
Such a shams the weather played such a major role this year leading to the majority of the stands remaining closed on Saturday. who can blame them though? with near monsoon conditions closing seems logical rather than ruining their stock! I hope the day visitors who came to see us on the Saturday appreciate the position and that they managed to find the entertainment which had moved into the marquee for some much needed shelter.
Thanks go to all the traders, Ty, Belfast Busker, Mr Wacky, Richard Ready & busy bodies who, as ever were so well received by all.
