YORKSHIRE MIDDLE ROUTE COMBINE

A VISIT TO THE 2015 BLACKPOOL SHOW
Once again Ken and I set off to the Blackpool Show early on Friday morning with our friends Paul, Sharon, Beth and Joel, arriving in Blackpool around 9-30. It was a cold morning with a slight drizzle until we reached the M62 when it started thundering and lightning followed by a heavy snowfall for about 15 mins, then it disappeared. It seemed strange. Saturday morning we were up early for the show, which was packed but we still managed to meet up with a lot of people that we know and a few people we met for the first time. Attached are photos of the people we met in Blackpool.
