134 New Members sign up at Cheshire Show
The Cheshire County Show, like the Society, can trace its roots back to the early 1800s and it's fair to say that a footpath society would not always have been popular at the show. Times have changed and 19 & 20 June saw the Society's new stand sandwiched between Hound Magazine and the Wild Dogs of Wilmslow Flyball Display team and in close proximity to the Countryside Alliance and the Bridleways Association.
