After a few doubts about village shows I can honestly say that Gransden is still wonderful. It retains that agricultural show feel, with cows, sheep and pigs being shown as well as the horses. It was well attended and whilst not having quite as many horses as it used to attract, it certainly had far more than Ashwell.
Cambs Hunt Pony club put on a good display at lunchtime with some games and I'm hoping to do some more with the pony club in the future.
It was a shame that only three teams registered for the Kessingland Tug of War Festival but they looked like they were having fun anyway.
Its a parkrun weekend for me next weekend. On Saturday I will be at Cambridge and Sunday I will be at Wimpole for the Juniors. Wimpole promises to be quite lively as its also 10 mile and half marathon day. The following weekend, I may well go along to try and spot some of my friends at the Cambridge town and gown 10k. On the 23rd I will be with Cambs Hunt pony club at Trumpington Hall. They have a training session followed by their annual presentations. The final weekend will be spent driving round Wales as I shall be trying to get some photos of the Wales Rally GB. Looking further ahead, I have already pencilled in a trip to Cottenham for a point to point meet on November 27th.
