Said NHVC spokesman Simon Lowings: “We are delighted to be staging this new event, which gives us the chance to hold an event away from our Nottingham base, spread our wings and meet new people.”

Simon is looking at organising other new events in the future. Stalls are welcome at the Derbyshire Dales show, and full details of the event and Nottingham Heritage Vehicles Trust, which has a fleet of preserved local vehicles housed in a former Trent bus depot at Hucknall, Notts, can be found via its website at
