The 2013 annual general meeting of the Fairground Association of Great Britain will take place on Saturday 18 May. This year’s location is twofold. From 12 noon onwards we shall convene at Curls Farm, Bromley Road, Stanton Drew, Bristol BS39 4DP, owned by vintage transport collector Alan Sparkes. The actual meeting will commence at 1pm in a building at the farm. There’s plenty of car parking available. After the meeting has finished we shall move to our second stop, Kevin Gamlen’s nearby base, The Croft, Stanton Drew BS39 4JL. Kevin will have his collection of showman’s engines etc on display.
Stanton Drew is just off the A37, the Bristol to Shepton Mallet road, about 4 miles south of the edge of Bristol. Members arriving from the east can take the A39 out of Bath, followed by the A368. Those arriving from the south-west along the M5 can leave at junction 22 and take the A38 north to the point where it crosses the A369, where you should turn right.
