We called in on relatives who were exhibiting and stopping over at the recent Holbeach Country Fair and we would like to thank everybody concerned through your newspaper for the wonderful time we had there on the Saturday.
The weather was good and the show attractions, both exhibits and in the arena, were a delight.
The entertainment in the big tent in the evening was stunning, starting with a bingo session with perhaps the most entertaining caller we have encountered for years (he had a brilliant sense of humour that really made people laugh), and finishing with a fantastic singer who accompanied himself on the guitar.
If only a lot more shows of this type could be like this, it would be smashing. Our only regret was we had to leave afterwards as we were on our way home from our holiday, but would have loved to have seen the cabbage hurling on the Sunday as we have heard so much about it. Perhaps next year.
Well done to everybody involved and the lovely welcome from everybody in Holbeach we met.
