The Nottingham Show is now over and it’s time for reflection. A lot of hard work went into organising it and I was exhausted when I got home, but having had a most enjoyable day. My main concern now is was whether it was right to go ahead with it. When Alan and I booked the venue a year ago, no building works were in the frame. We knew about the refurbishment at Harvey Hadden, but it was a surprise to learn subsequently that chunks of West Park would also be re-built. Work started months ago and we were confident that everything would be finished by Easter.

I don’t go on holiday very often and I’d high hopes for some late autumn sunshine in Tuscany.
