It is very encouraging to see that visitors to the ‘alternative’ Menston village website, this website that is, http://menstonvillagewharfedale.com, numbered well over 500 over the Menston Vehicle Show weekend  – 70 on the Saturday, 200 on the Sunday and 291 on the morning of the show.

It makes the considerable amount of time necessary to maintain this site worthwhile.

If you do not, just put your email address (it will not be publicised in any way) in the follow box at the top right. It’s more efficient than visiting the site on spec to see if there is something new.

Jaguar!The pre-show page will be augmented with a post-show page over this coming weekend – lots of pictures: cars, bikes, scooters, tank, organ, dogs and of course people. If you follow the site you’ll be notified when it’s posted. Meanwhile there are one or two small ‘tasters’ in this post.
