The 2015 Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show was a successful if somewhat damp event and Woolley & Wallis were proud to be at one of the prime events in the rural calendar.
The Woolley & Wallis stand was in its regular prominent position and looked directly over the main arena. The stand was really well presented and benefitted from a stunning handmade timber Wendy House that was being auctioned off for Charity. It was made by Barnaby Gower who is a Partner in the Shaftesbury office and the successful bidders were Steve & Louise Harris of Stourton.
There was a theme of Scarecrows and a most of the trade stands participated willingly – the Woolley & Wallis entry stood proudly at the entrance to the marquee, well protected by an umbrella!
The crowds made an early start and by 9am the showground was already busy. The rain started about 11am and this ensured that the Woolley & Wallis stand was consistently busy with new & existing clients and friends, enjoying the professionally prepared sandwiches plus a glass of fizz and sheltering from the downpours.
The show was well attended with visitors coming from far and wide and the gate was over 22,500.
Richard Nocton said “we are always delighted to support the Gillingham & Shaftesbury Show and it is a real highlight of our year. We were very busy and pleased to welcome so many people onto our stand. We have a strong link with the Show and next year John Woolley will be Vice President of the show. Please put Wednesday 17th August in you diary now!”
