Skelton Show 2014 took place on Saturday 5 July and was yet again a great day out catering for all the family. Following all the glorious weather we had been having recently, our hopes were high for the bright blue skies we enjoyed last year, but we had our concerns as the team set up on Friday in the wind and rain! Thankfully the sunshine prevailed and the show enjoyed another sun filled day!
We had representatives from David Allen Agriculture, Accountancy, Wealth Management and Recovery Solutions manning our stand throughout the day and enjoying the show. It was great to catch up with existing clients and say hello to new faces while everyone enjoyed refreshments and advice from staff. Our stand had a fantastic view of the main ring where everyone could enjoy the day’s entertainments.
The show boasted record entries into all classes and we were proud to sponsor the classes: Texel Ram Lamb, Beltex Gimmer Shearling and British Blue Unserved Heifer.
Our “What’s my hobby?” competition, with the chance to win a luxury David Allen hamper, had everyone guessing what our staff are busy with when they’re not in work. It proved that matching the hobby to the staff member was trickier than it originally seemed, especially with such hobbies as golf, karate and even alpacas!
We would like to thank everyone that came along to see us and congratulate the show organisers for putting on such a great event.
We are now busy preparing for Cockermouth Show which will take place on Saturday 2 August. Once again we look forward to seeing you there, come along and say hello – we will be pleased to catch up with you.
