Lorraine and I are going to the show again this year.
Hopefully, the weather will be kinder than last year.

Anyone else going for a look and day out?

Hope you enjoy it. I've stopped going due to the queue to get in. I went three years ago and everyone got stuck in the mud. Great show with good stalls. Bet you buy something Bill!

Hi Dick :)

Getting in was an absolute doddle this year mate.....no trouble at all.
The fields were dry and the weather excellent.
:rofl:....yes Dick.....we ended up buying some furniture for the decking :rolleyes::rofl:

Good numbers there and lots of stalls offering the usual freebie tasters:thumbsup:

Few pictures here guys :thumbsup:

Did not have a pasty either....we said we would go back later for one but didn't:rofl:

Your right mate.....the cider would have had me queuing at the toilets.............and the Pasty would have repeated all day :rofl:
The wheel was good fun and gave a brilliant view of the grounds.
The height did not bother me, Mark..............had my eyes closed........LORRAINE took the pictures :whistle::whistle::rofl:

Could not have been nicer Joe :thumbsup:
Wonderful array of dogs walking about with their owners.
I think the little dog pack was a neat piece of kit.
I watched a bushcraft programme in America where the blokes Labrador carried a special pack with the dogs bedding and all his own food in it which was brilliant but my girls are a bit on the small side to carry packs
