The Berkshire motor show was started to show off 4x4's but is now open to any
vehicles, we started this event to help different charities
and to give something back to the community, which we have in many ways.
The community plays a big part in looking after your neighbours, helping with jobs,
that others can not do, comfort people when sad or ill,
these are just a few things in general.
Community spirit plays a big part in life, and together we can all help no matter how big or small.
This event is open to any companies / clubs that wish to promote themselves and meet the public in person, as this can be a huge advantage.
Berkshire motor show, I am pleased to say has been running for ten year's in 2016. I am so proud of this and wish my late
parents were here to see it all, as this is in memory of them as my mother Irene was disabled and my father Jim Devine had a stroke, both from Burghfield Common,
so I wanted to give something back to the community, as they helped us when we needed help. All those year's ago the show started with nothing, just asking people
for donations of things we needed, help etc. My webmaster Paul and wife Sue have been fantastic with the website side of things for me plus helping where they can.
Friends and family has helped over the year's, which I thank them all.
Now we have moved to prospect park, things are a little different, there are more people and the show is getting much bigger, I hope we can keep this going for more year's to
come in the future.
Each year, when the show finishes we start again for the following year, it's a hard task asking companies for help, like would they like to show
there vehicles, asking for donations, then booking acts, barriers, insurance, behind the scenes the public do not see what we have to do, which can be a
nightmare when something goes wrong!
If anyone would like to help or take part then please call me on 0799 0667 503.
Everything changes after the event when all is put back to right again, and we get lovely emails from the public like this one saying,
"we had a great time at the show and everyone helped make this a special day for my partly disabled autistic son, and family, everyone
was so helpful, we will never forget this day and cannot thank you enough."
This makes us so proud to hear that a family
has had a great time, plus has helped a charity at the same time.
We would like to Thank everyone who exhibited and attended the show.
