Report – North Somerset Agricultural Show at Wraxall – Bank Holiday Monday

What a grand day out!

There were 21 of us in all, working in shifts throughout the day and most of us finished up with slightly sore throats, not to mention achy feet. The response from the public was great with the observation hive being the most popular exhibit on the stand. Thanks to member Hans Wilson we had a double-sized marquee this year so there was plenty of room. Special thanks to Richard & Lynn Ellis who provided the use of their motorhome so we also had somewhere really comfortable to take a break, have a drink and generally rest up before the next round. With pre-show ticket sales of about 19,000 we were kept busy but we all managed to get out & see some of the other stands, do some shopping and watch some of the demonstrations.

My thanks to all of the helpers – to those who came on Sunday & very early on Monday to set up, to those manning the stand who very nearly lost their voices explaining the hive activity and managing the candle-rolling and to those who kindly stayed on to clear up. Judging by the interest shown, I think we can rate the day as a great success.
