Beaulieu One Hundred members were invited to a reception on Bank Holiday Monday to celebrate the start of Mary Montagu-Scott’s year in office as the new High Sheriff of Hampshire. It was a great day out where members mingled and caught up with each other, and even though the rain put in an occasional appearance, it did not spoil the day.
As many as 5,700 visitors turned out for Beaulieu’s The 999 Show to see action-packed demonstrations including a kidnap attempt featuring Southampton Football Club legend Francis Benali and a CSI Beaulieu murder mystery at Palace House.
Double-time marching military band performances by the Rifles Band Winchester and the rescue of a casualty from the scene of a crash in an extrication display were also highlights at the Bank Holiday Monday show which was held to celebrate the work of the emergency services.
The event in the grounds of the National Motor Museum saw police, fire and rescue, ambulance, judiciary, coastguard, National Health Service (NHS) and the prison and probation services talking to show-goers about their vital work.
