Fascinating array on display

On behalf of the organising committee and the parish council, might I place on record our sincere thanks to all those volunteers who contributed to the very successful sixth annual historic vehicle charity event at the village hall.

Particular thanks to all those who brought a fascinating array of cars, military vehicles, and motorbikes.

Also the clubs who presented some beautiful models for display, and the dance groups who gave all day entertainment.

The charity stalls reported good receipts and publicity, in spite of the financial climate.

The Bognor Regis Local History Society museum exhibition was also very well attended.

Our thanks to the Reverend Keith Smith and the Royal British Legion standard bearers for the brief act of remembrance which has always been a feature of our event.

Special thanks to the Pagham Pram Race committee members for their assistance with marshalling and Langmead Farms for providing us with public car parking.

Initial tallies indicate voluntary coin donations at the gate amounted to £1,107 which is a mark of the incredible generosity of all those good folk who supported us this year.

Donations from the catering and other exhibits will almost certainly boost this total to something approaching £1,600.

Once the final accounts have been published, the surplus on this event will be disbursed to local charities as usual.

We hope to see you all again in 2012.

Ray Radmall,

Pagham on Parade committee chairman
