Popular Falklands at Royal Show.
The Falkland Islands have once again proven a popular attraction at the Royal Show, the United Kingdom's ultimate country lifestyle and agri-business exhibition.
Showcasing the best of British food, farming and country living, the Royal Show opens a window on the countryside, enabling visitors to see the UK's finest display of livestock, country shopping and agri-business companies.
The Falkland Islands Government Representative, Sukey Cameron, Councillor Ian Hansen and Melissa McKinley travelled to Leamington Spa to represent the Falkland Islands at the show, which took place from July 4 - 7.
Even with the wild winds of day four, the stand received many visitors and positive feedback.
Among the many visitors to the stand were HRH The Duke of Gloucester, Michael Howard MP, Leader of the Conservative Party, and television presenter Ben Fogle.
Sukey Cameron commented, "It was great to be back at the Royal; year on year we build more contacts with visitors and fellow exhibitors. It is a useful PR exercise for us and an excellent way of reaching a large number of people in a relatively short time."
She added, "Among our plans for next year are to create ?educational packs' of information for the large number of school kids who visit the stand and are happy to take away the free bookmarks, pencils, pads and stickers that we give them ? a great way to reach the next generation!" (PN)
