PRAISE to the young farmers working tirelessly and unceasingly on Westmorland County Show day, towing cars and other vehicles out of muddy fields.

No cars or 4x4scould get out of the one I had unwittingly parked in at 6am, due to the deteriorating conditions.

Particular mention to the driver of the large blue tractor with the Union Flag on his bonnet; he did not stop in the three-and-a-half hours until my turn; goodness knows how long he had been working before that.

Thanks also to the two gentlemen who organised a rota and helped fix towing brackets. I learned something new that day. Thank you.
