Rix Petroleum enjoyed the 138th Driffield show (our 66th show) in glorious 30c sunshine, we served over 500 cups of tea and coffee and 400 scones to customers and show visitors. Although we didn't win 1st prize for best show stand, like we did in 2012, we did come away with 3rd, which we were very happy with.
This year, our theme was Rix and the community and we invited Bridlington Young Farmers Club and our charity of the year, Dove House Hospice along to join us and help promote their cause. Bridlington YFC brought a wooden cow along that children and adults could milk, which was enjoyed by visitors throughout the day, whilst Dove House had a team of face painters on hand to keep the children happy.
It was a great day and we have put together a short video of the highlights from the day.
