Today, I went to the Chasewater Transport Show that I’d been plugging all week. I must say that it exceeded my expectations in every way possible. I turned up in the early afternoon, and cars were queing to get onto Chasewater down the A5, and overflow parking was being undertaken on the Highfield Farm site. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen Chasewater so busy. It was a delight to the heart.
All the usual stuff was there – classic cars, trucks, motorbikes, military, buses – even a vintage bicycle. There was plenty of entertainment, food and a great fairground. It was good to see the Chasewater Railway get a good headcount, too.
I congratulate the organisers on an excellent event, beautifully executed. There was plenty to see and do, and apart from one of the most remarkably petty acts of petulance by a PCSO, the day passed without a hitch. Fantastic stuff.
It’s nice to see such a great event taking place in Brownhills, and it was wonderful to see the community support it so extensively.
