The 179th Cumberland Show took place at the new venue of East Park, Brisco on Saturday 17 June 2017.
As proud sponsors of the event, David Allen, Michael Peile and I attended the show and enjoyed the hospitality of the member’s marquee.
The marquee was ideally located overlooking the main ring which allowed us to watch the show’s events throughout the day. After enjoying prosecco and delicious canapés catered for by The Crown Hotel, Wetheral, Show Chairman John Wharton gave a speech where he welcomed everyone and thanked sponsors for their continued support.
Throughout the day members of the David Allen team took the opportunity to catch up with clients and contacts at their stands around the show field. It was great to see Eden Woodland Consultants Limited and Johnson Tractors Limited on their fantastic stands.
We were very lucky to have fantastic weather throughout the day, allowing everyone to enjoy the great array of trade stands on offer.
A particular thank you to Burnetts Solicitors for their fantastic hospitality, it was great to catch up with you all.
We were proud to watch our very own Sarah Priestley in the main ring showing Brontemoor Lotto who was awarded Limousin Champion and Reserve Overall Interbreed Champion and Brontemoor Max who won Reserve Limousin Champion. Well done to Sarah and her family.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone involved with the organisation of this year’s show. With the superb new venue and fabulous weather it was truly a day to remember.
