Last Call for entries to the Heathfield ‘virtual’ Show

24th May

Never too young to start having fun learning how to milk a cow

Virtual Heathfield Show

This major agricultural event in Heathfield has been one of the most visible casualties in the rural calendar. So this year, no worrying about the weather incase we are knee deep in mud or alternatively roasting in the open air. Rather a gentile social media opportunity, with much hope of things to come at next year’s 2022 show.
