‘There was a lot going on all around the show and it was great to see the excitement all around when the monster trucks entered the main arena for the first time.’

Captain Gulley said that it was really good to see so many families around to enjoy the day. He explained that the show is about putting something back into the community.

From the Craftbox owner Michelle Duffy said: ‘I was delighted when HMS Sultan asked if we would like to come and join the show, so I asked people I know who own craft shops, like Corin’s, to come down. There are 15 stalls here today that all sell handmade products.

‘The day is really fun and exciting we love bringing what we do to the public.’

The show supports a range of charities including the Royal Navy and Royal Military Charity and the Gosport Men’s Shed.

The show aims to raise valuable funds for service and local charities and good causes.
