South Wiltshire Agricultural Preservation Society After the 2017 AGM we had a open dissuasion regarding the running of a SWAPS open day at the Salisbury livestock market early next year. The feedback and support from the members present was very positive.So as soon as we have a available date from the market we will let you all know. Hopefully it will be march-April before you all go rallying. It will be free to the public with the use of the canteen and the toilets. So come on. we are looking for displays, tractors, cars, motorcycles, stationary engines, rural crafts, working or static. All members welcome.
