Waterlooville Classic Car Show – 2012


Every year a Classic Car Show is staged in the Waterlooville centre.

Despite the weather letting the exhibitors down there were quite a few folks up there and I include a few snaps for your edification.

The pedestrianised precinct is ideal for this type of event. It is a shame that there wasn’t some music and perhaps a barbecue or hog roast to supplement the static car display. Now that the precinct has been refurbished the town has to make maximum use out of the facility. I arrived around  13:30 and all I could see aside from the cars was some kind of Face Painting and a caravan with someone bending balloons. I couldn’t see much to indicate if there was any kind of “Best in Show” competition.

The owners of the cars were not much in evidence although some had obviously taken refuge within their cars. I did wonder if the old lady, asleep in one of the cars, might have been an optional extra at the time of original purchase.

I can only wish them better luck with the weather next year.

Sunday Stress


Will need to break out the Tamazapam tomorrow.

Formula 1 at Silverstone with Button and Hamilton and Tennis at Wimbledon with Murray in the final, both on tomorrow afternoon.

So many Brit sportsman to support. I’m not sure I’ll be able to stand the stress levels. Good job I have some nails to bite.

Waterlooville supermarket staff go the extra mile


Well done to the staff of the Waterlooville branch of Waitrose who raised £1000 for the Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust and for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

STAFF at Waitrose swapped the deli counter and stacking shelves for rowing and running machines.

The group from the Waterlooville store set themselves the challenge of walking, jogging, running, rowing and cycling for a total of 2,012 minutes – 33 hours – over a period of three days.
