Thank You Great Yorkshire Show

Posted on July 26, 2017

Last week, we were at the Great Yorkshire Show in the heart of Harrogate.

It was our second year at the show and it was great to see so many customers old and new visiting our stall for some traditional Yorkshire treats over the 3 days we were there.

This little chap came, too, and he was very pleased with his jute bag. Just look at that smile!

Rosemary is a great ambassador of Yorkshire food and is always passing on her culinary tips and tricks.

As it was the 150th year of the show this year, we’d just like to say ‘Thank You’ Great Yorkshire Show for so many years of bringing people passionate about local produce together and for representing Yorkshire so well.

The show covers everything from local produce, farming equipment, clothing to the latest food and drink specialties of Yorkshire. Every stall owner has the same passion for what they do, so a great atmosphere is always guaranteed.

Big thanks to the team on our stand this year, my brother Chris, Hannah, Sam & Jules, who took orders and answered questions about our Yorkshire Parkin, gingerbread pigs, flapjacks, classic shortbread and all our seriously good gifts and treats.

Here’s a shot of me and Chris smiling for the camera:

And we were chuffed to bits, when the ITV Calendar team not only visited our stall, but came back repeatedly for more. Something must’ve taken their fancy, especially since we were soon down on Yorkshire Parkin and flapjack samples. In total we sampled over 3,000 customers.

At the show we also presented some of our new products, and in the picture of Chris and I you can spot our new Gardener’s Tea Time Tin.  It’s filled to the brim with sweet treats to enjoy after a fun day in the garden.

Spreading the word 

While at the GYS I joined the Co-op team on the Wednesday to sample our products to their customers. This was extremely busy and a great success.

I feel the show was a big success for Lottie Shaw’s. It was a great opportunity to raise awareness of all the delicious products we’ve developed over the years, and it was great to see people thoroughly enjoy our samples at the stall!
