Yorkshire rainned its show away

On Tuesday 10th july the Great Yorkshire Show started its 3 day event. As you probably already know on the Tuesday there was also a heavy downfall of rain to add to what we  had already endured last week. The after effects of this rain left tractors pulling cars out of the field  and car parks and stall holders packing up. This was a real shame for every one involved because the stall holders lost lots of money with the food stall holder reduced to  giving away the food they could not sell. The staff and visitors were equally affected.  The entrance gate staff  lost their  3 day job and membership and ticket holders lost out on  3 days of fun they had already paid for. This years Yorkshire show was to be the busiest for decades.  I know people have come from as far as Scotland for this event that only lasted 1 day. Now we will all have to wait again till next year and hopefully we might get some better weather.

 

How it should have been.
