Make sure you have this date in your diary and book your flights, planes, trains, cars, buses, push bikes so you are at the Notth Somerset Show Ground on the 5/6th July 2014, as this show is going to be the summers best family day out by far!

Filmig with Sam Willis and James Holland 2  Filming with Sam Willis and James Holland 3

At the beginning of October we were asked by historian Sam Willis if he could borrow the Beachmaster Jeep for a spot of filming with James Holland at Weston Super Mare.  The filming was for a BBC documentory about young historians and what has inspired them to follow their respective subjects.  Both James and Sam are long time friends of the Collection and we were delighted to help them out.

Over the last few weeks we have been making the most of the lovely weather getting the vehicles ready for the Dig for Victory Show.  

With only a week to go the Ops Room is waiting to go and the Austin has had a little run.

Eight years after her terrible accident the Little Lady is back on her feet in the Collection workshops and hopes to make her first public appearance since 2008 at this year's Dig for Victory Show on the 5/6th July at the North Somerset Showground.

During her restoration we found this....hard to believe 20 years has past.
