Getting out and about to greet clients

With wellies at the ready, Barringtons staff headed off to top country shows across the region.

Among the highlights were our visits to the Staffordshire County Show and the Newport Show in Shropshire.

While we couldn’t bring the sunshine, we did ensure our guests received a warm welcome to the County Showground.

We welcomed more than 200 visitors to our marquee where a hog roast, wine and hot drinks went down well on two chilly days.

In Newport, it was parasols in hand for a sweltering day on the Chetwynd Deer Park.

A marquee, set high on a grass bank, offered a great vantage point for all that was going on in the main arena.

Barringtons is a regular sponsor of the show promoting agricultural industries.

Managing director Phil Wood said: “Both these shows highlight all that is great and good about the countryside. We have many clients drawn from the farming sector and it was a delight to meet them and their families informally.”
