1 June, Saturday CANCELLED
Cumbria Fell and Dales Pony Show, at JENKINSONS FIELD
It is with great regret that Ellen and I have had to cancel this year's Cumbria Fell and Dales Show. We are both absolutely gutted but due to the heavy rainfall on saturday and the subsequent damage caused to the field, we respect the farmer's decision that the field is not fit to use. Please pass the message to all and we are confident that the show will go ahead in 2014. We will destroy all cheques posted to us. However, if you would prefer us to return yours we will do so if you let us know. We thank everyone for all their support and look forward to seeing you all this summer. With our best wishes, Hilary and Ellen, 20 MAY 2013
