  • I think that poor organisation is an understatement! Only two posted maps of the area of the area, no non alcoholic refreshments within the 'square' and no specific facilities for the disabled to watch the finish. Very poor, we went home and watched it on TV. Sandringham last year was far better.

  • So looking forward to this tour as the Cycling craze is seeping our country. Let us hope Councils improve our roads and make them safer for people who want to take cycling up.

  • As usual an event which is marred by poor organisation at the showground. Why were some of the exits closed and why were the staff in orange jackets standing around in clusters chatting whilst the traffic was at a standstill trying to get off the Car park?

  • Uhhhggh.....the moaners are out in force again...reading it makes me despair. "We were queued on the A47 for over an hour to get in"...(Get there earlier??) "There were no non alcoholic refreshments for the kids"...(Take your own drinks?? Go to Sainsburys??). "The bar that was there closed soon after the race" (Err...get a drink BEFORE the event finshes and everyone goes home??) "The toilets were all locked up soon after the race finished"... (Well they are not going to leave them open all night are they?? If you are that desperate go to McDonalds or the Showground pub??)"Some of the exits were closed causing major delays exiting the showground"...(Aww bless, did you REALLY have to wait 30 minutes in a traffic jam after the biggest FREE event in Norfolk for sometime?? How utterly dreadful, you must have missed the news at six.) "Why were the staff in orange jackets standing around in clusters chatting whilst the traffic was at a standstill trying to get off the Car park"...(Perhaps they volunteered their free time to help organise a FREE event for the likes of you on your weekend, if you don't like the organisation why don't you get off your a**e and help out??) Nuff said......me and my family had utterly fabulous day in the sun with sport, beer (Adnams!!), food, music and a great atmosphere - I am completely stunned that certain individuals spend their time commenting on small faults that upset their own perfect lives - GET REAL. A massive "Well done" to all those involved in putting on the event and don't bother with the snide comments.

  • I have to agree, the organistion at the show ground was absolutely terrible. We were queued on the A47 for over an hour to get in....There were no non alcoholic refreshments for the kids... The bar that was there closed soon after the race and the toilets were all locked up soon after the race finished, and some of the exits were closed causing major delays exiting the showground... Maybe the organisers were taken by surprise at the events popularity... A lesson for the future i feel!!
