This weekend just gone was spent at the Cotswold Show, in Cirencester Park, Glos. Last year we had a cracking time with bumper sales and so were hoping for the same again but unfortunately that didn’t happen. Just like Roger Federer we were knocked out. The rain on saturday meant that the crowds that were there didnt get their wallets out. Too busy holding onto their umbrellas, ellas, ellas!!
The BBC’s Countryfile presenters were all there on the saturday and it was interesting to hear them interviewed and indeed see them film.
Sunday brought a few less showers but, as with Sundays, the crowd were more lookers than shoppers.
It’s a shame but with pitch costs as they are (and no doubt due to rise) I think we may only have one more go at this particular show.
The Government can say that the recession is over, but we can tell you from a traders viewpoint “It’s not”
