A statement was released from the organisers of the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Caravan Manufacturers’ Association (HERCMA) shows recently, regarding the future of its southern show Beaulieu.

It said the “enormous commitment” of running the Caravan, Motorhome and Holiday Home Expo 2020 (formerly Lawns) in Harrogate had led to its “difficult decision not to hold a southern show in 2020 which has traditionally been held at Beaulieu in the New Forest”.

HERCMA’s Chairman said: “We have a responsibility to ensure Harrogate is a monumental success and need all resources focussed on delivering this exciting, epic new proposition to both the public and trade.

David Bellamy OBE was a regular face on TV since the late 60s, when he was interviewed after the Torrey Canyon disaster struck – an oil tanker ran aground between Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and David, then an ecology lecturer at Durham University, was on hand to discuss the impact of the spillage with John Craven.
