All four days of the show were busy with at least 25,000 reported visitors every day. Everyone I spoke to was having a great time with so much to see. That is one disadvantage for us when working at a show, we don’t get much time to look round. We did manage to sneak out a couple of times and saw some great craft activities going on. There was everything you could imagine from dry stone walling and hedge laying to willow weaving, and on a smaller scale, painting and pottery to knitting.

|Stripey deckchairs were all about the site for visitors to take a rest|

On Saturday we were delighted to meet Adam Henson, a Countryfile presenter who has become famous for Adam’s Farm, where he protects rare breeds of farm animal. Adam took time out of his busy schedule to come down to the Datatag stand. He told a visitor to the stand that he has the system fitted to all of his tractors.

After the show closed that evening we went to the “Craven Arms” pub area of the show and had a stone baked pizza that had been cooked in the side of a Land Rover! We sat in the sunshine in the deck chairs in front of the BBC sound stage listening to live music with a cold drink and a pizza – what a great end to the day.

Thanks to everyone at Datatag for making us welcome on the stand, we had a great weekend.
