Today, as planned, we visited the Isle of Man's Southern District Agricultural Show which was held conveniently close to our base at Douglas, the island's capital.

Whilst held at a farm and with an underlying agricultural theme participants included a wide range of quasi related businesses ranging from the local radio sttaion to craft people and even the army reserve.
