Beautiful day at the Hadleigh Show brought out the crowds with record numbers visiting this year. Busy walkways, packed food tent, magnificent Suffolk Punch displays, livestock a plenty from rare Japanese chickens to prize-winning British Blue cattle and the Gotelee sponsored Cookery Demonstration tent. Local award winning chefs treated the salivating audience to taste the dishes so expertly prepared and explained. A real treat – my scallop and samphire was delicious!!!
A family show, Hadleigh has something for everyone from the hard-nosed farming fraternity to the youngster learning that beef burgers come from that creature over there and not from the supermarket by magic. Fairground attractions, White Helmeted Royal Signals display team, falconry, show jumping, eating , tractors large and small and all in the gentle sunshine of Hadleigh in early summer.
It was a great day out.
