Elaine and Gareth Wishart of Chicks Chucks and Mucky Ducks have kindly offered to host a summer BBQ for DASH members.

The venue is not child safe, so unfortunately we cannot allow under 16s to attend this event. The lake is unfenced so quite dangerous to little ones. Also, it is a working smallholding so No dogs please!

Please bring your own food and drinks, as well as a little extra cold stuff like salads, puds etc. to share.  Elaine will provide the BBQ, buns, plates and cover if it rains!!

Please contact Elaine directly on 01409 259 092 or email shows@devonsmallholders.co.uk to book your place and for directions if required.
