Dalston Show - 2019
For many years we have been blessed with wonderful weather for our Show but this year proved to be challenging, to say the least! Maybe it was just our turn for the heavens’ to open!
However, we were determined to proceed and therefore offer our sincere thanks for the support of everyone despite the very difficult conditions.
We deeply regretted the need to cancel the Equine section but the heavy overnight rain which continued throughout the morning resulted in the wagon park and horse rings being flooded and hence our Safety Officer and Veterinary Surgeon concluded that it was not appropriate to proceed. The rest of the Main showfield was deemed safe and hence livestock judging took place together with some of the Main Ring events. We were also able to accommodate many of the trade stands, particularly those who had set up during the previous two days .
The exhibits within the Industrial Tent and the Craft Marquee were superb and all credit to those who battled through the conditions to display their produce and creations.
Thanks again for your support and of course to those many families who came through the gate and hopefully enjoyed all that was on show. Your attendance was greatly appreciated and we do hope you will return once again on the 8th August 2020 under better circumstances.
