The Stithians Show Must Go On

(Updated 7:06am 16th July 2012)
Organisers of Stithians Show say they have got plans to protect visitors against the wet weather.
The one day farming fair is the biggest of its kind in the Duchy.
Thousands are expected to brave the elements at the showground near Redruth.
Yvonne Toms is General Secretary. She said, "If the sun is shining and it is very hot that can put people off. So can a bucket of rain but the forecast is looking very reasonable. The showground is looking very good.
"We're prepared with contingency arrangements should it get wetter again. That comes down to have some tractors locally if we are in need - gravel, grit all that kind of thing. There has never been any talk here of cancelling the show or postponing it."
But forecasters have told Pirate FM that after some occasional rain or drizzle at first, Monday should dry out and warm up.7:06am 16th July 2012
