NEWS

Right on your doorstep, Staffordshire. You are invited!

Swinging into action with publicity for the show. Local and regional press. Staffordshire is sandwiched between Birmingham to the South and the Peak District to the North and its history is largely agricultural, remaining so to this day with many farming communities and villages as part of that heritage. So it seems like the most sensible thing to do is to get out to all of those communities and make connections with all wool lovers everywhere.

We'll be doing a separate article on Bishton Ponies (bottom right in the featured pic), the Community Interest Company which the show will be supporting this year and which lends a hand and a hoof to excluded and cared for children and teens in the area. For now, as we're talking about connections, there exists no better than between a horse and a human and Bishton's stable of 28 legs do their job magnificently. You'll see them in action at the show.
