Who can believe it's
August already; the summer months seem to be flying by! Here at

marquee at Devon County and Royal Cornwall Shows, and our
distinctive shows trailer at all the one-day shows. At Royal
Cornwall, we had the privilege of displaying the Barclays
Premiership Trophy on our stand for most of the day. People
visiting us could have their photograph taken with the Trophy
for a donation to the Air Ambulance.

existing Members - and, of course meeting potential new ones - at
shows, and our stand is always popular thanks, in part at least, to

is being sold to raise money for the South West's Air Ambulances,
and so far we've sold almost 530 copies at
What's more, we're running our free prize draw for £100 of Marks
and Spencer vouchers at one-day shows again this year; ask our
Inspectors how you can enter and you will also be offered a free
Our next show is Camelford on 10th August, followed
by Okehampton on the 11th. A full list of the shows we
have yet to attend this year can be found in the 'Out and About' section of our Latest
News page. If you're planning on going to any of the shows we have
a stand at, please do come and join us for a cup of tea and a
