After spending the last couple of years driving past the show thinking about attending, I was delighted to be invited to attend as a representative of Morton Fraser. Also in attendance were members of our Private Client and Banking teams. I was overwhelmed with the size of the Royal Highland Show and impressed with the fun atmosphere created by those attending. There were lots of opportunities to take part in activities, learn about the farming sector and get lost - which I did, even with a map.
This reception was not just about work, luckily. It was a chance to discuss events happening at the Show, enjoy the entertainment the Show offers and various other topics. I even met a farmer while walking round the grounds who lives in Castle Douglas, which is just 15 minutes from my home town. It just proves what a small world we live in.
As well as hosting a drinks reception Morton Fraser also sponsored the Honey Marquee. This marquee provided a great insight in the life and world of honey bees by illustrating and explaining how honey is produced. It provided children with the opportunity to take part in a number of bee related activities, finishing off with tasting different types of honey - which I was keen to take part in.
It was a brilliant day out of the office and I hope our guests enjoyed it as much as I did.
