SIR - To avoid North Devon's annual mud bath why can't the North Devon county Show be held on Chivenor airfield?

There are acres and acres of underused runways, taxi ways and aprons, all constructed and maintained to the highest specification and more importantly with excellent drainage.

The access to Chivenor is far superior to Huntshaw Cross and Umberleigh - next year's proposed site- and would avoid long queues of stationary traffic damaging the environment.

Public events have been held at Chivenor in the past; remember the splendid air shows when it was a fully operational RAF station and latterly the motor sprint events.
