Latest from the organisers. I'll make no comment and leave it up to you to decide what you want to do. When I receive the promised plan I will share it with you. I'm at Silverstone for the F1 Grand Prix this coming weekend so you won't hear from me again until the middle of next week! As an aside, congratulations, Dixon on your award Sir.

Dear Clubs,
After our meeting at Stoneleigh yesterday we have a lot of big changes to implement for this year. As all of the blocks after the main gate are currently under ground works, they are having a matting installed under the grass which will not be usable until mid-September. Stoneleigh are having this done to make up for the lack of parking as they have lost Gates 1 – 2 – 3 due to the HS2 Railway passing alongside the site. These blocks will be available for 2022, but for this year we need to condense all of our club sites onto Block 59 – 51 – 63 – 73 and the Grand Ring. I’m currently working on a new layout for all of the club sites and a new site plan for 2021. When I have this finished I can send that to you so you can inform your club members of you new temporary location for 2021.
I’m currently waiting on the ground to forward me the details for a couple of marquee companies, once I have the plan and your locations organised I can send this all out to you.
Please bear with me as creating new site plans take a bit of time, thanks for your support at Stoneleigh and I will get the information out to you as soon as I can.
If you want to give me a call to discuss anything my office number is below.

The organisers have informed us that everyone might be in different place this year as half the site will be closed off, they will only have one Hall & because of this they are not sure who is going where as yet.

There also might not be any space to camp on the club pitch if it is considerably reduced. Hopefully this won’t be the case & people can camp there as normal & not the camping area.
Kitnet have a gazebo and if there is room for it to go up then all Pilgrim members are invited to have tea & coffee from them as normal.
Thank you Kitnet.

Thanks Ian.
I am in County Durham and log book says 1994 for year of registration. There is a trimmer close by and I plan a visit soon to see if he does/can do hoods.

Looks like a Mk5 to me - one of the later models.
I don't know where you are in the world but you shouldn't find it too difficult to find a local trimmer to work on the hood for you - having an old one + sidescreens is a big bonus.

Hi Ian 
Thank you for the reply and apologies for my late reply. I have the old hood and side screens so thats a bonus. I am not sure on the model and perhaps you could help with that as well. I have tried to attache a pic if that helps.

Many thanks 
I’ll be booking our usual pitch if it’s available as it seems some changes have been made to the showground.

I’ll post the advertising blurb soon.

Hi Wellsmark and welcome to Bulldog ownership.
If you have an old hood and side screens then these can be used for patterns to make new ones, which any, preferably local to you, car upholsterer/hood maker should be pleased to do for you. Unfortunately new ones off the shelf are no longer available- the original maker has gone out of business and vanished along with the original patterns. If you don’t have an old hood and side screens all is not lost as there are still options - borrow them from someone on this forum, or have them made from scratch which will cost a fair penny more. Which marque of Bulldog do you have? Look back on this forum for some clues! And where are you? I am in SE London and have an old hood which you could borrow for a pattern for a Mk 2.
Ok - I’ve had nothing from the organisers re club pitch yet.
Unfortunately for me it’s the same weekend as the Belgian F1Grand Prix which I might have tickets for if we’re allowed to go.

Hi, new to Pilgrim ownership and I have a Bulldog which is going to require sidescreens and hood. Any advice on suppliers please.  Thanks
