The essence of England on a sunny afternoon

Yesterday (Saturday 1st September 2018) I took advantage of a wonderful late summer day to visit the Whittington Country Fair and Craft Show, on Bit End Field next to St. Giles Hospice in Whittington, near Lichfield, and had a great day.

This is always one of the best local country shows, wonderfully well organised and I’m glad the organisers have found new blood to keep it going in the future. This has certainly been the best show I’ve been to in 2018, and I revelled in the sunshine, entertainment, cake and just the sheer Englishness of it.

The show has a fun dog show, and as always at this kind of event, it’s the dogs and their owners who are the stars – but the birds of prey and especially the Llamas – were wonderful too.

It was a great afternoon, and I’m glad to hear a few blog readers attended too. This kind of event encapsulates this country in all it’s forms and we really should support them more.

My thanks to the organisers. See you next year!
