:D Thanks - we will come with an estate.

Question from a FF newbie: I would like to meet and have a couple of drinks with swfuklers - where is the place to be?
We will arrive around 20:30 and will stay at The Augustus John.
I read in another thread, that a bunch of you have dinner in a curry house in Ringwood. Will you stay there for some beers afterwards or is there another traditional meeting point (maybe a pub in Fordingbridge or sth. like that).
Pls let me know - we don't want to spend the night alone. :wink:

We usually go to The Crown which is over the road from the Town Hall.

Majority of people I know who are coming Saturday evening are staying in Ringwood which is around 6 miles away. People will be having drinks before and after curry there, give me a shout and head over that way, be taxis from there to get back to Fordingbridge later on.

Thanks guys - so the Ringwood people will stay there or is there a late meet up at The Crown? (which I would prefer to just have some beers).
We'll try to do both.

Next question: How about payments at FF. Is there a WLAN connection to do via Paypal or is there just cash. As we do come over from Germany it's hard to tell how much GBP we need to change for our finds/buys.

Reception in the hall is poor but if you go outside I can get a couple of bars. Some of the usual dealers take PayPal but most sales are cash. There's an ATM on the high street though about 50m from the venue.

Sorry to long time goers of FF, but not been before so where are the places to park and the opening times, etc, on Sunday?

Thanks in advance.

Taff

Parking is in the car park at the back of the Co op store, £1 per hour or £5 for all day If my memory serves me right.
If you look at a satellite map of Fordingbridge it’s near where the library is, access to the car park is via Bartons road.
You can walk to the high street via an exit besides the Co op, then the Town Hall is on the right about 100 yards or so, opposite Dave Trees shop.
Opening time is 11:00 approx.

The Ringwood people will be staying in Ringwood I would imagine (I will be) - it has more pub options, food options and more places to stay. It's just easier to get a bigger meet up in Ringwood so less people miss out on the social side of thing - this is due to Fordingbridge having far more limited options to stay over.

As for Paypal transactions - these often happen at the show, so should be no problems even though it can be a bit crap for signal. Someone will have a signal and can use them as a hotspot for wifi :)

No worries. Just like a bit of prior planning and to organise myself. Never been an off the cuff guy if i could help it! :lol:

We would love to join the bunch, but I don't really know, when we will arrive at Ringwood. Approx 9 PM - too late for dinner at the curry house but early enough for some drinks. Do you think you will stay at the curry house or move foward to a pub?
