On Friday 31st October, our agricultural team attended the Borderway Agri Expo annual event at H&H auction mart, Rosehill, Carlisle.
This was the second year for this event of which we are pleased to be a main sponsor of and we also participate with a trade stand. Being the last day of October we would expect cooler weather but it was particularly a very cold day and given that the trade stands are out in the pennage area it was a little drafty too. However we were prepared for this with an urn to hand which kept us, along with our visitors on the stand, supplied with hot drinks.
We had an excellent day with many people visiting our stand giving us the opportunity to discuss business with existing clients or being introduced to potential new business.
Our competition this year again proved popular with ” guess the photo ” – 10 photo's of agricultural machinery close up's and the winner was Ross Pattinson. The event which we sponsored was the Bucking Bull competition which took place throughout the day and some staff members including David took part .
Overall it was a successful day with a fantastic number of people attending and we look forward to next years event.
