Elemental VW Show 09/04/2011

The 9th April saw the sixth annual Elemental Volkswagen Show take place at the Mathematics and Computing College in Stansted Mountfitchet. As has always been the case with the Elemental Show, a good word was put in with the ‘Man Upstairs’ and glorious weather prevailed. This, along with the fact that the money being raised was to benefit the Essex Air Ambulance, combined to mean truly record breaking attendance figures.

Almost the entire history of Volkswagen was represented at the show, with vehicles ranging from early Campers and Beetles, right the way up to the latest models on display courtesy of local VW dealership, Sheppard’s.

Along with the sunshine to bask in, there was, a bouncy castle and fairground entertainment for the children, Raggedy Jack The Storyteller and live music into the night for those wishing to camp over. On top of all of this there was even a ‘Wear a hat to get discounted entry’ promotion, the kind of promotion which could only be dreamt up by a collection of VW enthusiasts, making for a brilliant and cheap day out for the whole family.

HIC have sponsored the show ever since it’s debut in 2006 and had a selection of staff member’s cars on display at our stand. Those who chose to get a quote from the us at the show not only benefited from an amazing £30 discount, they also received a free goody bag and were entered into a draw to win £50 High Street Shopping Vouchers – Congratulations to Mr Carl Gordon who’s name was drawn at the end of the day!

The shows organisers are still busy counting up the pennies, but early estimates are that approximately 2000 people were in attendance, and well over £5000 was raised in aid of the Essex Air Ambulance.
