Sadly Sheffield and Hallamshire Motor Club Ltd have taken the decision to cancel the 2014 Hope Motor Show, held every year in June at the Travellers Rest in Hope. The reason given is due to “the appalling behaviour of a small number of drivers and a large number of pedestrians on the road outside the Travelers’ Rest at the end of the show”. In depth discussions with Derbyshire Police and Derbyshire County Events Safety Advisory Group concluded this would be the best course of action for 2014, giving time for measures to be put in place for 2015 to enable the show to continue.
At MSP we’re now very grumpy that such a well organised and run show, which took place with out incident or problems has been cancelled due to the idiotic and dangerous actions of a relative minor number of individuals.
We would like to thank Tina and Bob Asquith and their team for all the hard work they have put in over the years to make the show such a success and wish them luck implementing measures to enable the show to continue in 2015. We have put Monday 22nd June 2015 in our diary!
