Too far south for us, but thought someone might be interested?

A bit too far for us to go to as well.


A real shame that we have not had a localish Smallhoders/producers show in this region for 4 years now......... 2008 being the last Norfolk Smallholders, and Suffolk Smallholders shows.

I have recently tried to set up a local growers and producers show. The council want 200 for the venue for the day, and the insurance company wanted 1500 for 24 hours worth of public liability cover.


I have come to the conclusion that it is not the Health & Safety regulations that are stopping/preventing/killing such things as these smaller shows and other organised public activities, but the Insurance Companies and their reluctance to have to possibly payout on any claims, and it is they who are hiding behind the veil that is disguised as H&S regs

I was hoping that you were going to say that you were going to go the SS show at Builth Wells, we would have made the effort to go down and meet you there.
