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.

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.
