CHANGE OF DATE
Newbury and District ARS (NADARS) are delighted to announce the date of the Newbury Rally for 2018. It will be held again at the prestige venue of the Royal Berkshire Showground on Sunday 24th June. Gates opening to sellers at 8am and to the public at 9am.
Yes. This is a week later than previous years but a move has been necessary to gain help from volunteers to run the event. NADARS pride themselves in attention to detail and maintaining high standards of service to both Sellers and Buyers but it takes a large number of members to staff the event.
We hope the move away from Father's Day will be allow yet more interested parties to attend what has become one of the largest amateur radio events in the South of England.
