We can't have been at the same show. The staff we spoke to were all, and I mean ALL, pulling their hair out and complaining that is was disorganised chaos, as were the majority of people we met. One woman staff member was actually crying!!
I feel very sorry for the stall holders, again a lot complaining of it being really badly organised. Yes, some lovely stalls but we saw no gardens - perhaps that is because there were no signs and we didn't much feel like forking out £5 for a map after paying for a ticket and sitting in traffic for three hours!
I know the weather yesterday must have been challenging, but conditions were downright dangerous. We saw two mobility scooters stuck in the mud. We also saw one poor lady fall flat on the wet steep temporary bridge. We saw two people carted off on stretchers. One of the maintenance men was saying the temporary walk ways all needed lifting tonight because they weren't put down properly.
And what about seating?? People were sitting on the wet ground!
A pleasant walk to find your car it may be if you can tackle hills, mud and miles - not suitable for the two people over 75 that I was with.
They have decided to keep it open for an extra hour tonight to "make up" for the problems. What a joke. Better off banging the organisers heads together to improve it before tomorrow.
