Organisers at the Royal Cornwall Show have been forced to closed the sheep marquee because of strong winds. All sheep are being moved off the show ground as a precautionary measure.
It is a large marquee and we didn’t want to risk anything untoward happening. This is an isolated event and no other section of the showground has been affected in this way. This is a great shame, especially given that 2012 is a record year for sheep entries. Happily, most classes have been judged today but judging of the championships, due to be staged on the second day (Friday) will inevitably be lost.
