Classic Shows is very saddened to hear that Steve 'Stainless' Jones suddenly passed away last week while on holiday. Steve was very well known to a lot of Classic Shows visitors and traders having attended our events for a long number of years and generally taking a sprawling stall of 3 or 4 spaces and selling a range of screws, nuts and bolts. Steve frequented our events at Three Counties Showground, Malvern and latterly, Blenheim Palace. We are all very upset to hear this news and our thoughts are very much with Mandy and Steve's family during this difficult time. On behalf of Classic Shows, Andrew Greenwood and myself, thank you Steve for all the support you provided at our events and for being a top bloke. RIP. Matthew J [...]
