South Of England Show 2011 : Review

The third event of our 2011 season has now flown past and a whole year now stands before the next South Of England Show held each June in Ardingly.

The weather was typically English for the event's duration, but plenty of smiles were to be seen, especially from Ecovillage's Vicky and Amanda. Ecovillage helps to support and promote green businesses who wish to have a presence at large shows across the country. To visit their website, please click here!

Greenman Carpentry was one business we found a great interest in. Astley and Steve specialise in the repair and construction of timber framed buildings. There's very little these guys don't know about working with wood and they're more than helpful with any questions regarding their skills and techniques. To visit their website, please click here!

Outside of the ecovillage, layout and exhibiting stalls seemed similar to last year, with perhaps slighty less this time around. The weather was pretty miserable Thursday and Friday with Saturday remaining dry for the most part. I still can't get used to weather like this in June!!

The Royal Signals Motorcycle Display Team put on a show twice daily to an enthusiastic crowd. The main arena constantly hosted events throughout the show, but I only managed to catch five minutes on the Friday.
