The Show Goes On at Cockermouth



Posted: August 2nd, 2010

On Saturday 31 July, the annual Cockermouth Show took place and the team at David Allen were keen to be part of the local event and show our support.

So on the Friday before, we set off to put up our new marquee…ensuring that this year we well and truly had it secured to the ground so we didn’t have a repeat of the previous year when our tent blew away !!!

On Saturday morning we arrived back and set out all our new branded display stands and brochures in the eye-catching colours. A team started blowing up balloons to give to the children passing by, plus goody bags filled with our summer newsletters, new pens and note pads.

The inside of our marquee looked bright and colourful also with all the new designed items on display and Carole had made up fantastic flower displays which many guests admired, plus the fresh strawberries and grapes were a real success.

We had many visitors coming to our trade stand, to talk to our team and occasionally take shelter when there was a rain shower. The weather did not put people off coming and the show was as popular as ever attracting exhibitors, businesses and families.

I know everyone thoroughly enjoyed being part of the day and a big thank you to everyone who helped out.
