Mini and Metro Show, Gaydon – Sunday 6th June 2021

Jean, Nick and I, with my brother and nephew in tow, met at the services in Cirencester at 7.45am for a set off at 8am, although I went to the an old meeting point so ended up being late!!!!

We arrived and the stove came out and kettle straight on, then the banner was put up followed very closely by the sausages and bacon being cooked for butties.  Ollie (my  brother) went off for wander then so in true sister style I ate his butty, there were only 6 rolls between 7 of us so it worked out quite nicely for me!!!!!

The sun shone so after butties Jean, Nick, myself and my nephew Max ventured out for a wonder around some of the stalls then Max an I went in to the main museum, when we came out we realised our timing was perfect as it had rained.

We all reconvened back for lunch and a chat, then it was a look around the relatively new building that was an overflow of vehicles to the main museum and houses the first gear less mini as well as the last on off the production line.  We looked around the cars in the show and the last few trade stands before back for scones, jam and clotted cream!!!!  We then packed up the banner and loaded up the cars and then it was homeward bound.

The sun shone most of the day and I got sun burnt!!  There were a few showers but it did not spoil a good day and of course good company.
