The show season is over for this year – Chagford Show

31st August 2018

We were at our final show in Chagford on 16th August which was another exceptionally successful day for all involved.

We have really enjoyed our time in the countryside throughout August attending Honiton, Okehampton and Chagford shows.  All three shows were lots of fun, with many old friends visiting, and new friends met.  We are very much looking forward to doing it all over again next year!

It was great to see our guests enjoying the refreshments we had on offer, the Pimms, strawberries and pasties went down particularly well!

Sam our gun dog puppy found the experience very exciting, he was very popular, it was great training for him to be with us so he could get used to lots of different people, without being too overwhelmed.  We hope you enjoyed meeting him as much as we enjoyed having him with us.

We loved the face painting designs the kids were going away with, unicorns were as ever one of the most popular with lots of bright sparkly colours, hopefully it wasn’t too much hard work to wash off at the end of the day.

Thank you to Diane Coates from The Sculpture School who joined us at the Okehampton show and showcased some beautifully designed sculptures for visitors to admire; and thank you to the Farming Network Community who joined us at Honiton and Chagford shows, and supplied colouring to keep the kids entertained whilst their parents relaxed, soaking up some of the Gilbert Stephens’ hospitality.
