With the sun shining down on us on Tuesday 16th August 2016, we knew we had a busy week ahead at the Pembrokeshire County Show, and were waiting and raring to go.

 

Painting the Faces of Pembrokeshire!

Tuesday morning saws the arrival of the face painters to the Blas y Tir stand, causing a stir among the children passing by, with the promise of free face painting to raise money for children’s charity Ty Hafan.

We encouraged children to be something they had seen at the show, or something agricultural, we had lots of butterflies and horses!

We also couldn’t resist having a go ourselves, with Megan from Blas y Tir having the ‘Puffin Produce’ logo painted on her arm (for a donation obviously!)
