What a shame for the organizers of the Lakeland Country Fair, they had to cancel their show on Sunday due to waterlogging on the field. What a horrible wet summer we have had, so many shows both large and small have gone by the wayside. I know there is absolutely nothing we can do, (except moan about the weather), I just feel sorry for those people who put in so many hours of dedication to put these shows on for us. At least Lowther Game Fair had a dry weekend, we had a good time up there and it was great to meet so many people both old and new to us, I have heard that next year it is going to be back to three days with the carriage driving back, we'll have to wait and see, but fingers crossed .
Well lets hope the bank holiday fares a bit better and we have a good day at Black Combe Country Fair on the monday, this is one of my favourite days, and come rain or shine it's nearly sure to be on. I can't wait to see what the young farmers get up to this year, the terrier racing is brill to watch, there's parades of hounds, gun dogs, clay shooting and lots of trade stands to browse around, all in all a great day out.
