The Times correspondant Matthew Parris visitied Ashbouren Show last Saturday and wrote in his Wednesday column:
"We all went to an outstanding Ashbourne Show on Saturday. The pleasant Derbyshire town's annual event is a family day out that has kept faith with its agricultural roots."
Matthew knows the area well being the former Member of Parliament for West Derbyshire. He joined The Times newspaper in 1988.
Many thanks, Matthew, for your kind words, we are pleased you enjoyed your day at this year's Show.
