Oops! Overenthusiastic Advertising for Liverton Country Fayre
In amongst worrying about what possible harm could come from including a chainsaw sculptor, the motorcycle display team and a climbing tower on the thrills and spills repetoire, our entire 'gang' were given the job of littering the neighbouring towns and villages with our publicity posters and we took to the task with gusto! I reckon that subconsciously we're trying to give Uncle Tom Cobley's lot at Widecombe up the road a run for their money. Anyway, all our advertising ventures have now gone totally pear shaped. Devon County Council announced a crackdown on unauthorised signage which was publicised in the press about a week ago. Hey presto! there's a bloke from County Hall who's been on our case and expressed extreme crossness. So now the committee are busy scurrying about removing the fruits of our enthusiastic endeavours. Let's hope lots of people saw our 'pretty billboards', or 'eyesores' dependent on viewpoint. before they had to be taken down.
Anyway, according to the bylaws, the ones around the village have been allowed to remain. Here's Elvis showing interest in both the dog show and the agility events. After all he's handsome with a fantastic jump, a very waggy tail and a great big canine toothy grin so he's bound to be a winner in some class or other. If anyone out there wants to come along and share his success you're all very welcome. Just watch out too for a grey haired maniac frantically ticking boxes and checking everything's shipshape and watertight!
