Gavin attends Shareshill Vintage Fayre

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, visited Shareshill Vintage Fayre this weekend with Councillor Bernard Williams.

The biennial attraction returned to the grounds of Shareshill Village Hall for the popular event which attracts visitors from across the West Midlands.

The Fayre, which has been held in the village for around 40 years boats their main attraction as their fleet of many old vehicles, with some stretching as far back to 1903. There were around 80-100 vehicles on display for visitors to enjoy.

Vehicles that have visited the village in the past include the 1903 Burrell Showman’s Road Engine, a 1916 Amanco stationary engine, a 1928 Austin Clifton Tourer, a 1943 Willy’s Jeep and a 1982 Mercedes Benz 200.

In addition to the collection of cars, there were a number of activities for children and homemade refreshments for guests to enjoy.

After the event Gavin said: “I had such a brilliant time at Shareshill Vintage Fayre at the weekend. I am a huge fan of classic cars, so I particularly enjoyed viewing the impressive display that had come to Shareshill for the day.

“One of the best things about events, such as the Shareshill Vintage Fayre, is seeing so many people come from across the West Midlands to enjoy our fantastic villages. Shareshill may be small but this brilliant event has certainly put it on the map.”
