Swedish Day UK

SWEDISH DAY UK 11TH MAY 2014
We invite you all to the 7th Swedish Day UK.
2014 sees a new venue and new ideas, but the show is still for those interested in Swedish vehicles including Swedish commercial vehicles as well as all other Swedish products.
Our new home is at Haslebury Mill, just outside Crewkerne. A fantastic old 19th Centaury Mill with lots of history everywhere you look.
The main Swedish Day will take place on the Sunday but this year we are planning to make the show into a longer event for those wishing to make a weekend of it all. On the Saturday afternoon you can enjoy a tour of the local countryside with a road trip being organised by Etienne Morsa who lives in Belgium but loves England. Saturday evening will see a carvery cooked by the chefs at the Mill. Limited camping will be available if wanted.
For the first time we have introduced a vehicle fee of £5.00. (no charge for occupants or foot visitors)
This is to help us with running costs and monies left over will be donated to a charity.
The chosen charity for 2014 is “Cancer Research UK”
Each vehicle owner will be given a raffle ticket, as a thank you, for a nice gift.
On Sunday, the chiefs will cook up a breakfast for those arriving hungry as well as a Hog Roast at lunch time. The Mill’s bar will also be available during the day.
There will be an area available for a few trade stands and auto jumble alongside our sponsor’s displays.
As always the event will be a leisurely day out, come along, park up and meet friends old and new, chat, admire, eat, drink and chat a bit more.
There will be a few prizes given out, favourite Saab/Volvo, favourite truck, furthest travelled etc.
Application forms can be found on the web site; however they will also be in the presentation pack on the day if required.
Thank you very much for supporting the first years of Swedish Day with a big thank you to Haynes for their support in the early years.

update

Swedish Day is creeping up faster than ever this year but I wanted to check in with a few extra details.

Camping…. We went to the Mill the other day and looked at the camping and caravan options,

there is room for about 10 tents but your car would not be beside you. The grassed area is behind a fence.

There is no charge but you will need to remember there is no toilet outside business hours. Toilets are inside the Bar and restaurant.

The area for the caravans is behind the Tithe Barn on hard standing with space for about 20 vans but again please let me know, You can stay both Saturday and Sunday night but please be aware that there is a wedding taking place in the barn so music could go on until the small hours. No charge again but as with the tents, no toilets after hours.

The Saturday tour is coming together very well, Etienne has arranged a very nice slow country tour covering about 55 miles and including visits to a pottery, a cider mill and Lyme Regis.

We are still planning the Saturday night carvery and details will be next on the list.

On the Sunday, Rob Voisey from XLPest, will be there with a few hawks and an owl for you to admire.

Lance Cole has offered a prize for a new category, ‘Most characterful oily rag Swede’ oily rag being a dirty old  unrestored but daily driver, so no excuse now,

Any questions? please email and I will get to you as soon as possible. robin.kerry at virgin.net

I think that’s it for now, until next time….

Robin.

 

Swedish Day number 6 in the UK, this Sunday.

sdlogosu

Swedish Day in the UK has arrived again, and tomorrow for around six hours there will be a gathering of nearly 200 vehicles who have their routes in Swedish. Take a look at the Swedish Day website for more details.

Over 60% of them will be Saab with Volvo catching up fast, but this year we have around 14 Swedish Trucks coming along as well, both Scania and Volvo. Sadly no Koenigseggs have been in touch, but maybe one year.

Weather forcast is looking good so fingers crossed for a dry sunny show.

Many of the French and Belgium visitors are arriving in England as I type and we will all join together tonight for a meal at the local Sparkford Inn, no dout chatting until past closing time.

Everyone is welcome to take a visit and we look forward to seeing lots of visitors. A few of last years pictures are at my flickr page.

Swedish Day UK 2011.

Swedish Day UK 2011.

Swedish Day 2011 was another great success and even though the weather looked like it might be cruel to us and give us some rain, it ended up very dry, warm and sunny with a steady wind blowing through the site

As in 2010 the weekend started on Saturday evening with a successful Carvery at The Sparkford Inn. 33 Swedish Fans sat down and  enjoyed a three course meal followed by lots of chat until closing time.  Many of our friends from Europe were there sharing their love for both Saab and Volvo. Luckily for us, the English language was known by everyone. Chris Hamley, a Saab specialist from Devon, arrived with his whole garage staff and their families and almost took over the pub car park with their six cars including a 9000 Limousine and Saab Astra van.
