Stuart Hollings: Diplomats, saints and masochists *H&H VIP*

Opinion

After reading “Showing faces a volunteer crisis’’ (news, 25 May), I feel even more blessed and consider myself to be one of the luckier show organisers. At the North of England Show events, we have such a dedicated team of excellent, experienced and impeccably turned-out stewards — although we are always on the lookout for good “legger uppers’’ to assist in the ridden classes, who seem to be as scarce as new ride judges.
