    Volvo FL6. Was a tractor unit but we removed the 5th wheel (will come with the lorry ) and added the 10ft box. It has an electric winch fitted and a automatic pin coupling. Nice little runner but needs tidying. It does not turn off with the key, not looked at why. 6 speed box and has a gross weight of 23 tons. Open to sensible offers.

  12. I am, very reluctantly, having to sell some of my collection to create more space. I am therefore offering the following items for sale at what I consider to be very fair prices and reflect what I actually paid for them. They are located near Romsey, Hampshire and are available on a collection basis only. The 8 pics below may not be in the correct order but are easily identified, apologies. Orton & Spooner Ark Horse. Complete with all the chrome trims and with an absolute known provenance as coming from A117 Tucker's Ark that travelled mainly in Yorkshire. I have restored the left side to it's original colour scheme and left the right side unrestored. The seat has been recovered. It is completely sound with no rot. 42" X 39" X 10". £275. Bensons Double Sided Dropper. This was one of a set of 3 boards that hung across the main entrance to Bensons Ark A67. The reverse carries a highly decorative floral pattern. The other 2 boards reading Electric, Thriller, are known to exist but I know not where. Numerous photos can be found on line showing the boards. Totally unrestored and probably unique. 60" X 16". Slightly curved to reflect the radius of the ride. £340. Bensons Twist Car seatpanel. A metal panel that was attached to the back of a Bensons twist car. Fully restored to original colours. 42" x 20". £125. Roll - up Board complete with correct size rubber balls. Restored apart from the decorative floral pattern in the centre which is in perfect condition. Sound with no rot. A written inscription on the reverse reads :- G. Miller, Fairground, Fakenham, Norfolk. This game creates much amusement at parties. 54" x 18" . £ 130. Rounding Board from a Juvenile ride. Fair unknown but possibly from the Derby area. Fully restored to it's original colours and design. 56" x 10" £100. Stall Gag Board Restored, fair unknown. 24" x 20". £60 Decorative carved Bracket. Unrestored. I was told when I bought it many years ago it was from a dodgem track paybox at Rhyl but this is unconfirmed. 16" x 8" x 9". £40 I can provide far more information, and photos, as necessary on all items to serious enquiries. My total asking price for these 7 items is £1,070 but, start your own collection, I'll take £950 for all 7 if anyone is interested ! If anyone is seriously interested in more than I item I will consider reasonable offers but I believe I have priced these pieces at very realistic levels given their provenance / condition. My mobile number is 07870 390066 Andy
  13. Quoted By Member

    Hi Wood1, The post you were quoted in was deleted after it was posted, so you would have got a notification saying you had been quoted when the post was made, but after it was deleted you wouldn't have been able to find it! The reason it was deleted as it was part of a discussion on an entry in the Transport List, and as per forum rules we don't allow discussions on list entries, just the main information and a photo or two. I hope this helps
  14. Happy 40th Birthday Mark hope you had agreat day

  23. Coming Events Suggestion

    You must have typed that just as I noticed the error and edited it !
  24. All The Fun Of The Fair is primarily a message forum. However, over the years it has grown into so much more. We have A Rides List with details and photos of over 3500 UK Rides, A Transport List, Funfair Reports Archive and loads more. As far as I am aware, the information we provide is unique online. Providing adequate hosting and storage requires funding which I am unable to finance solely on my own. Fortunately Forum Supporter donations are currently covering our costs - however this assumes that our hosting/storage bill doesn't go any higher and supporter numbers don't drop. Forum Supporters have been discussed in the forum recently and this has had a positive effect and numbers are up - we are secure, for the time being at least. I don't however want to be complacent and I've been discussing with the Forum Panel various methods of encouraging donations. One suggestion was to look at the benefits of donation (apart from the obvious one of keeping this unique resource available!). And I have now enhanced the benefits available to forum supporters (please see http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/supporter-benefits/ for details) Also discussed was making the Forum "Member Only", that is only accessible to those who do contribute financially. For various reasons, I don't want to implement this. However, if push comes to shove and the level of donations drops below our hosting and storage bills I WILL reconsider this option. Another option discussed was restricting access to our biggest and most used feature - The Rides List - to paid subscriber only. I can see merit in this idea, but I still have reservations, primarily that the list was compiled and the information and photos supplied by a mixture of supporters and non-supporters and to exclude those who contributed to its success would be grossly unfair. I believe that it is important to balance who has access to the Rides List with those who have contributed to make it the success it is. I hope that I have achieved this with the following change in policy. Having considered all the advantages and disadvantages I have decided that access to the Rides List will eventually be restricted to Forum Supporters only, but this won't be done until it is necessary. I believe that by phasing in this restriction it will be fairer and I won't have to restrict access anymore than is necessary to achieve our aims. Phase 1 - Has been completed. All new members to the forum will have unlimited access to all of the site except the Rides List - if they wish to access this additional feature they will need to support the forum financially (and with our lowest donation of just 10p a week it can hardly be described as expensive!) Phase 2 - Is proving more difficult than I anticipated. If a member doesn't financially support the forum and has never contributed with content (that is has never posted) they will not be able to access the Rides List. I had a plugin to identify and move these members automatically, but it was unreliable, moving members who didn't fit the criteria. This is now a manual process and will take some time to complete. Phase 3 - On 1st January 2018, the Rides List will further be restricted to the following: Forum Supporters Members who have contributed to the Rides List Members who submit Funfair Reports The software is able to automatically give Supporters Rides List access, so there is no work to do on this aspect. However, there is no way for the software to identify Rides List or Funfair Report contributors, so these members will have to be given access to the Rides List Manually. If you are NOT a Forum Supporter, but have contributed to the Rides List or have submitted Funfair Reports I will have to manually give you access to the Rides List. Please drop me, @Bill Edwards or @Jamie Peters a PM indicating which Rides List Entry or Funfair Report you have contributed to and we will do the rest. I've announced this now so that I have time to allow all those members who should have access to be able to access the list when it's restricted in just over two months time. I hope that you understand why this change of policy has been thought necessary and hope that you feel as I do and the Forum Panel does, that by restricting access to Forum Supporters and Contributor's to The Rides List and Funfair reports that the policy is being implemented fairly. Many thanks for your continued support. Bill
  25. Forum Supporters (Split From Gallery Change)

    I've now looked at what benefit's members receive and what the benefits are from making a donation (apart from the obvious one of keeping a useful and unique resource available!). Silver, Gold and Platinum supporter's now get added advantages and these are listed at http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/supporter-benefits/ I've also added a page with additional ways to donate - I'm now hoping that it is easier to support the forum financially if that's what members want to do. Please see http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/support-how-to/ if you are having difficulty using the software subscription method.
  26. Forum Gallery - Apologies, Another CHANGE

    I previously personally PM'ed all members who had Albums in the Gallery advising that we would remove the Gallery Module on 31st October 2017 and that they should either repost their photos in the relevant forums, or accept they would be deleted. Just a gentle reminder that the Gallery will be removed in 12 days and all the photos therein will be deleted. Many thanks for your continued support over this matter. All the best Bill
