Hot & cold food will be available onsite.  There will be a catering and coffee unit in the stable area, which will be open during the evening as well as for stabled competitors.  Showers have been added for July 2016 in the overnight lorry park.  Electric hook-up available on request.  Accommodation list available locally, please contact the Secretary for list.
