    If you look at the directors history on companies house website, it seems the process has happened a few times before, so countryman fairs is just the latest name ! There has been an objection raised to CMF being wound up so that’s not happening now as as yet.
    Could you share your intelligence in this Rob?

    No, not really I'm afraid because I'm not sure if it was a privileged source or not or if any specific details of the conversation were to be kept private. But the general thread from more than one source was there was no cause for concern.

    hope thats true Rob because i would be gutted to see it go, the midland game fair is my favourite in the FT programme, great weekend away from the stresses of everyday life, no doubt we can shoot it elsewhere if it was to fold but that would be a shame because the actual weekend is superb at the midland

    So when will we get confirmation if the Euros are to be at Weston Park. I always book my hotel early as the cost goes up due to so many people attending the game fair.

    *Taken from a Facebook group regarding people being owed money by Countryman Fairs. I'd imagine the show and date will go ahead. I have nothing to do with the group or the show by the way*

    Our countryside rocks | An action packed day out for the whole family.

    Ian Harford is a director.

    So I guess this is what it will be called now.

    I don't know Dave. But I suspect if you PM Dave or Trev they'll give you an indication.

    I know a lot of people like the euros at weston but I know a lot of people don't. Me being one. I'd much prefer to see a 3 day event at blackbrook with 3 different lines/courses as you can do what you like with that ground!
    We seem to be governed to the end of the map (the same end) every year with the same line being basically a very similar course for 15 years, maybe more.

    Not a dig at course setters because I know what goes into it, not a stroll in the park but like the euro Euros maybe it could be moved around a bit?
