Only 17 days to go! Silage should be off all of it by now. Got a bit sunburnt on Thurs marking out the outdoor stands, it was a long day but really pleased to get it done in plenty of time before Royal Cornwall. Dave Gregory is brilliant and comes up with great ideas to solve any problems! Pics show some of the trade space and the workers having a well earned rest
