Royal Cornwall Show this weekend

The Royal Cornwall Show starts today and runs until Saturday. If you’re heading down, see if you can spot our four Burcombe lorries on display around the showground.

We’ve recently got ourselves on Twitter and Instagram, so give us a follow – BurcombeHaulage – and we’ll have plenty of pictures from the Show tomorrow!
