07/10/2010 - South West Dairy Show

We have had a successful debut at the South West Dairy Show on 6th October. The popular dairy show was celebrating its 30th Anniversary. It was Gibbons first time exhibiting at a show and it has been hailed a great success. Dave Gibbons said "it was very enjoyable to meet with lots of our existing customers and some potential new ones.

We also took pleasure in showing everyone the full extent of the work we do on both the contracting and construction sides of the business. A number of facts and figures on display for example 9,388 acres of foraging completed in the last 12 months and 9,000 bales created certainly attracted attention along with the step by step photos of some of our recent construction projects".

We are now looking forward to seeing everyone again at next year's show.

On behalf of the entire team here at Gibbons, I would like to thank everyone who stopped by to visit our stand, Dave Gibbons.

Crews* spent much of Wednesday morning clearing snow and de-icing the runway with the first plane leaving just before 15:00 GMT. An airport spokeswoman said " passengers should check with their tour operators.
