Introducing Tippy

Say hello to the newest addition at Old Forest School – Vintage Venue…



She’s a covered trailer that was waiting patiently (for the past 20 years) in a paddock just down the road from Old Forest School. In early 2015 we discovered her and we decided to approach the owners about adopting her. After hearing all about Old Forest School they were eager for her to move to a new home.

Tippy was feeling the effects of sitting idle in a paddock for 20 years. Her paint was a little flaky (and not a very flattering colour in battleship grey),  her floor was starting to sag and she really needed some love.


As you know the team at Old Forest School is always keen to rescue vintage treasures so everyone pitched in to scrub, clean, sand and paint Tippy. In no time at all she was ready to make her debut. So, now Tippy is proudly positioned right next door to the Redwood Bar, ready to welcome visitors looking for a shady spot to enjoy an afternoon tipple of their choosing and some great company.

Tippy even has her very own brand spanking new hashtag #lovetippy
