Ringmer Steam and Country Show 25/6th July 2015

by Ian Sampson

I have been going to this show for a number of years and this year we arrived on Friday morning and managed to set up before it started to rain and did it rain! It carried on for most of the day so not much happened, w stayed in caravan and drunk lots of coffee!

Friday evening a few hardy souls headed to the beer tent, myself included. The entertainment was very good so I stayed and had a few beers. Saturday was a totally different day, good dry and sunny with lots of public and most of the arena event taking place. Saturday evening down to that tent for a few more drinks!

The forecast for Sunday was not good as some exhibitors and trade stalls were leaving Saturday late pm and evening. Well the forecast was right and Sunday the rain returned. Engines were left uncovered and as it carried on raining there were very few public around. About lunchtime we packed up as the weather was not getting any better. After getting home and clearing up the rain stopped in the evening, you can’t win them all!
