Don’t fence me in

Written by 

For the second time, Taragate Ltd will be the principle sponsor of the fencing demonstration area.

This site is a must if you’re interested in fencing. It will be the place to go to get free advice and to have a chance to win “exciting” prizes.

For the first time, a selection of tractor driven postdrivers will show what these machines can do at the all new ‘driving range’. 

Three professional fencers will be available each day from 9am to 4pm to answer questions, and to demonstrate how to approach any fencing job. 

Demonstrations will include post footing, stays, fence repairs and more. Each day a programme of the day’s activities will be displayed at the front of the site.

A full range of fences – organic, electric, post and batten, netting, post and rail, and more – will be on display. 

Small competitions will be staged and visitors may enter a draw to win a 200cc go-kart. 

The fencing demonstration area is hosted by Taragate with support from Eurocorp, Permapine and Farmlands.
