It was a tough Show for the SOE committe as it clashed with the Royal Three Counties Show at Malvern (also a NBCC round). In addition they had come back to the Ardingly Show ground after a years absence only to find the Show organisers had moved their previously agreed pitch at the last minute. However Mike, Merv and David still managed to put on a great show along with the usual friendly atmosphere. Check out their show website at http://www.southofenglandblacksmiths.org/
