The second Martinborough Fair finally took place on the 10th April 2021, having been inconvenienced/postponed by Covid in March, and then affected by rain on the day! However the trusty gazebo and the odd umbrella sufficed until the rain stopped! The volunteer team had 3 Tesla Model 3's, a Kona, an electric Mini and a BMW i3 to wow the crowds, and over 200 people were engaged over the day, with 21 getting a Tesla ride as an experience!Read more

Bailey from ChargeNet had a 'sticker maintenance' mission for the DC chargers whilst driving the electric Mini which got envious stares from many!Read more
