So much to catch up on, including pointy caravans

by Cameron Ashmead BLOGTIME! It has been 4 months since my last light-hearted blog and soooo much as happened.

The biggest happening here at Elderton since my last blog has definitely been vintage. Everyone naturally asks and says – so how was it? Hand on heart, I can honestly say 2017 was excellent.
