We’ve had a couple of really good days at the Royal Three Counties Show in Malvern this weekend, starting with a demo outside on Friday, before going inside the show yesterday.
Between checking out some of the hunt staff and hounds at the hound show (confirming what we had heard about Simon French who was huntsman at the CVFH becoming whipper-in for the Croome and West Warwickshire) and attending a talk by CVFH Master, Ed Burrows, we had some good chats with people at the NFU and CA stands, a Hartpury College lecturer and representatives of other organisations including the Aberdeen Angus society. We also met a lovely woman from the WI who told us about various campaigns they support (protecting honey bees, supporting those with Alzheimer’s, raising awareness about food poverty and so on).
A lot of our information on TB given out and good points raised on all sides, contact details swapped and interesting ideas in the pipeline.
Video of Ed Burrows’ talk will go up soon, so watch this space!
