RORY ENJOYS “WONDERFUL” SKELTON SHOW
Rory, Vice-President of the Skeleton Show, has praised all involved in the organisation of this year’s show for an excellent event, following a disappointing cancellation of the event last year. The 2013 show was the “best-attended ever” – continuing its tradition as the largest village show in Cumbria, and a real showcase for all things related to the countryside.
Rory said: “Skelton Show and its fantastic organising committee have done an absolutely wonderful job this year, on the most glorious day of the year, to produce another successful event in the show’s long and distinguished history. After the disappointment of last year’s cancellation due to wet weather I am delighted that we have been blessed this year with beautiful blue skies and sunshine, ensuring an amazing turnout and the most impressive display of livestock, local produce and arts and crafts, horticulture, horsemanship and hounds, and of course so many amusements and trade stands that are able to engage informally with the public. Many thanks also to those who did such an incredible job in dismantling all stands by lunchtime on Sunday. It’s an enormous honour to be a Vice-President of this Skelton Show, and to be able to attend and show my support for this great Cumbrian tradition.”
