It was great to finally get out in the fresh air and get the marquees out of storage! Well done to the organisers at Three Counties Showground for making life seem (almost) normal again. Yes, a smaller show than the regular Autumn show, but plant focused and a great weekend for everyone – exhibitors and visitors alike. Even the weather was perfect. Thank you to all our visitors for following the social distancing guidelines and using the hand sanitiser; it was truly wonderful to see so many of you. Lets hope that spring brings us more shows and social events that are as safe and well managed as this was.
Autumn Show and Game Fair 2020 (South of England Showground)
At the time of this post, the Autumn Show at Ardingly is still going ahead on 3rd & 4th October. However, we all know how quickly rules and regulations can change, so if you have pre-booked your tickets for the show, please remember to double check the shows website www.seas.org.uk/autumn-show/ before you head off to avoid any wasted journeys!
I was about to say that I had taken the year off for 2020, but a tiny glimmer of light has been spotted in the doom and gloom of this years non-existent show schedule.
The South of England Agricultural Society at Ardingly Showground are hopeful that the Autumn Show and Game Fair (October 3rd & 4th) will be going ahead. We are waiting to hear how social distancing measures will affect the way that the event is structured; we all want to ensure that everybody attending is safe and are aware that this event will have a very different feel to it from the normal show experience.
With that in mind, we have booked our pitch; If the show goes ahead then we will be there, bringing you Darlac tools, Drawing Boards T-Shirts and our new additions for 2020 – growing solutions for small spaces from Blooming Walls and Green Wash.
Fingers firmly crossed, we look forward to getting out in the fresh air and catching up with you!
