I have just returned from the Bury Show. Unfortunately the weather was not too good to say the least and torrential downpours including occasional thunder and lightning made it rather soggy under foot. Yesterday morning I called in to the coffee morning at St. Paul’s in Ramsbottom. In the the afternoon despite the pouring rain I went down to Burrs Country Park to visit the stalls and help launch the ducks for the Gateway Club’s Duck Race. For those who bought a duck 891 was the winning duck which won by a short beak in a blanket finish!
