Havenstreet 1940s Weekend, 6th and 7th July 2013

Vectis 40’s Vintage members enjoyed a weekend of nostalgia and vintage fun at the annual Havenstreet 1940’s weekend.
The glorious weather and very high temperatures of around 30 degrees was a welcome bonus. The farm boys were busy making hay while the sun was shining!DSCN0969

Viv the Spiv compered the entertainment in his own cheeky manner.. Not arf!! The three belles provided the glamour, belting out wartime hits and a selection of new songs from their latest CD.
