From Stena Line UKIE, one of the sponsors of Vespa world Days Belfast 2018:
‘We had a fantastic time at the Vespa World Days 2018 event at Titanic Quarter Belfast, We met people from all over the world including Germany, Italy, Sweden and France... We received thousands of entries at the event for our ‘Win a Vespa’ competition, but there can only be one winner…
And the winner is… Johnny Dickey... Congratulations!'
And on Monday 2 July, we did the draw for the raffle for the further four prizes from Vespa World Days Belfast, see video of the draw:
Brian Finney had been a lover of Vespas. He had a handful of Vespas over his life time and finished his life with three. He also for many, many years had been a member of all the Northern Ireland Vespa clubs and would have went out on rides weekly. He also would have went out on rides with my father, his best friend, another Vespa enthusiast. Sadly, Brian passed away on 14th February 2018 at age 48.
It is with much respect that Brian had an excellent send off at the funeral with over 100 Vespas following behind the hurst up the church driveway.
Our sympathies go out to his family, his Vespa buddies, and most importantly, his brother who now rides Brian's Vespa with Brian's gloves, alone. His family know that this weekend would have been a highlight of his life, hence this short mention.
Our hearts go out to his family, Vespa riding buddies and friends.
URGENT. Due to the extreme weather conditions Vespa Village will be closed, an announcement will be made at 11am.
If you're in #Belfast visiting us for Vespa World Day's 2018, Belfast, Northern Ireland - our cafe is open this morning if you need to grab breakfast or a coffee while the event team get re-set at Titanic Slipway.

Unfortunately we are unable to open Vespa Village until we re-set up. A further announcement will be made at 1pm with our intentions to open registrations at 2pm weather permitting. Thank you for your understanding, Mark
Fancy having a trade stand at Vespa World Days in June? We're offering this unique opportunity to local traders to showcase their wares on Belfast's Titanic Slipways on the 14th to 17th of June this year.

Just want to put a shout out to Laurance for the champion job he has done with the ticketing of all registered attendees. Such a mammoth job, and I hope you have lots of beers bought for you in a show of appreciation.
