Saturday 9 June 2012 saw the 174th Cumberland Show held at Carlisle Racecourse. David Allen, Alison Welton and Derek Baty hosted 2 tables in the Hospitality Centre for 20 guest clients of the firm. After almost torrential rain on Thursday and Friday, it was pleasing to see the sun shining and the ground not too wet under foot on arrival at the showground on Saturday morning.
After welcome speeches by Neil Milbourn, the Show Chairman and President Chris Holmes of Carrs Milling Industries, our guests enjoyed a 3 course lunch overlooking the events in the main ring followed by a wander round the many and various trade stands before returning to the hospitality centre for drinks and prime viewing of the grand procession.
There were lots more David Allen staff walking around chatting to people around the showfield, and everyone enjoyed themselves. It was great to see a good turn out considering the weather the day before.
The show concluded with Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling and Terrier Racing judged, at the last minute, by our very own Michael Peile!!
An enjoyable day was had by all and concluded with a couple more drinks in the Members Tent. Many thanks to our guests for attending and everyone who was involved in organising the Cumberland Show…they did themselves proud!
