AT the 35th Camrose Vintage Working Day Presentation Night Chairman Mr Andrew James welcomed benefiting charities as well as many of the volunteers, and announced that this year’s Camrose Vintage Working Day was the ‘biggest’ show, ever, in terms of attendance!

He went on to say that was an incredible achievement for everyone involved, given that there had not been a show for two years.

Andrew then told some of the funnier moments, behind the scenes, when the number of visitors was realised - such as the scramble to get local farmers in with their agricultural equipment into neighbouring fields to cut silage to make way for even more car parking space!

A slide show of the day then took place and Andrew talked through all the events that had been achieved throughout the day, as well as paying tribute to all the fantastic exhibitors, volunteers and community members who made the day happen.

The 19 charities, receiving a donation, were then invited to receive their cheques and each gave a very interesting talk about their charity and the types of things they do to raise funds, and also how more volunteers are needed across the board.

The charities were: RNLI, Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society Food Story, Maisie Moo Foundation, Blood Bikes Wales, All Pembrokeshire Cruse Bereavement, Prostate Cymru, Shalom House, RABI, Wales Air Ambulance, Erbs Palsy, Noah’s Ark, Rachel Devonald, Paul Sartori, CRY, Crossroads, Stroke Unit, Withybush, Hope, Bone Marrow Transplant and St John’s Ambulance. A total of nearly £15,000 was distributed, the profit after all costs.

The Chairman then closed the meeting by saying how much the whole team is looking forward to next year’s show on Saturday, August, 26, 2023.
