I've heard it is a bit lively and I hate shopping in any case with a very low tolerance for people who want to demonstrate how sharp their elbows are.

Then the Sale Day at the Stockbridge branch - Saturday 23rd October

This will be followed by the Wragby Open Day on Saturday 20th November. It will be at their new premises at Rand - now renamed as the Beehive Business Park, Rand, Nr. Wragby, LN8 5NJ

Yep - I weakened and got a stand, large BB, 3 supers and roof and a 14x12 BB for my WBC for £95 inc delivery. The prices are great. Now just to save for a HM national to go with...
