Vehicles old and new on show at Nailsworth Transport Fair


Nailsworth’s first Transport Fair took place in the town centre on Sunday, organised by Nailsworth Chamber of Trade and Commerce.

Classic cars and motorcycles were on display, and in the afternoon more than 100 motorcycles taking part in the Motorcycle Club’s three-day trial arrived at the bus station.

The event also featured a display of electric cars and bicycles by Nailsworth Climate Action Network.

“We want to raise awareness of decreasing reliance on fossil fuels and by doing so help improve air quality,” said Kat Parker.

A range of electric cars had been loaned by their owners. “We can give basic information about electric cars to visitors and the owners can talk to people about ownership. These cars are so convenient, they can be charged at home overnight and running costs are around one fifth of the cost of a petrol car.”

There was something for everyone with stallholders selling everything from food and confectionery to hand-made cosmetics.
