Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon at the Staffordshire County Show and we’re sure today will be just as fabulous for those going. The event certainly felt busy and there is expected to be approximately 70,000 guests over the two days. It was also great to see some familiar faces around the show; Signal 1, Staffs Young Farmers,Express and Star, National Farmers Union and Staffordshire Newsletter – to name but a few!
Each year the show seems to be getting bigger and better; there was a great selection of local traders from charities, to artists, to furniture makers and of course transport in every shape and size.
It was great to see representatives from some of our brand partners at the show, including Citroën, Peugeot, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, FCA Group and SEAT. Representing Swansway Group was Stafford Land Rover, located near the Main Ring, with a great selection of new and approved used Land Rovers for everyone to look at, sit in and get a real feel for. If you happen to be going to the show today don’t forget to say ‘Hello’ to Daniel, who is representing Stafford Land Rover, he’s very friendly and we’ll even give you a nice cup of tea in our fantastic hospitality unit!
Also at the show and one of our favourite parts was the delicious food. Although it took a while to choose from the vast array; burgers, fish & chips, pasties and lots more. Our final decision was the delicious cheeseburgers from Smokey Joe’s and they didn’t disappoint.
Tummies satisfied we went to have a look around some of the animal contests; the Dog Show was going on in one corner of the Show with all shapes sizes and breeds putting their best paws forward. Just opposite our stand in the Main Ring was the Horse Show where all the beautifully presented horses and riders showed off their skills. We popped our heads in for a quick look around the Poultry Tent, where the best chickens, roosters and ducks had been awarded their ribbons.
In summary, it’s safe to say that the local residents of Staffordshire turned out in force to support the show and we cannot wait to see everyone at the 2017 event.
