Had a lovely day out with the family on Saturday to Heckington Show - the largest village show in England. The show is now in it's 144th year and I have visited many times over the years both with family and as an exhibitor.
Set in the heart of rural Lincolnshire, the site at Heckington is huge and has a vast array of stalls, exhibition tents, animal demonstrations, fields of vintage transport, food halls, fair rides and a long list of attractions in the main ring from athletic races and battle re-enactments to heavy horse parades and stunt bikes.
He's been obsessed with transport, cars in particular since he was tiny so wandering around the vintage cars, tractors and machinery was a real treat. Then of course there were the rides...funhouse, bumperboats, bouncy castle and bouncy slide were particular favourites. Add a sprinkling of ice cream and his day was complete!
"Heckington's GREAT!" shouts Alfie on the way home...big compliment from a hard-to-please 4 year old
