Have your say

THERE are two reasons to head to Emsworth this weekend with the anniversary of a landmark business.

It is the town’s Big Weekend with a food market and the dragon boat race on the Mill Pond.

And it is also the 65th anniversary of Lillywhite Bros garage in Queen Street on Saturday, where there will be a celebration from 10am to 4pm.

Paul and Mike Lillywhite will have many interesting vehicles they are involved with on display, Old Yeller II, which has returned from its classic racing in America and Australia especially for the event.

An an old workshop will display tools, equipment, artefacts and pictures from the early days.
