Words fail me 😢

The Market Deeping club had to cancel their exhibition due to mindless vandalism by 4 youths who broke into the venue this morning.

Hayward’s Heath MRE

Myself and Mr P paid a visit to the Hayward’s Heath Show held at the Dolphin Leisure Centre. Apart from the parking which was horrendous (found that Mr P is very good at reversing his car down a long road!) the show held in 2 halls was pretty good.
