VISITORS to last year's Honiton Show had already lost confidence in the economy and were detecting signs of an economic slowdown - long before the credit crunch was formally recognised by the Government.That is the view of chartered accountants Lentells, who carried out a Towards 2010 survey at the show.Farmers and other local business owners were canvassed for their opinions during the event.Their views showed confidence in Government policies, particularly those affecting farms, was in sharp decline.Lentells are to repeat the exercise this year. You can take part by visiting their stand in the Blackdown Hills Business Association marquee, on Aisle E, next to the Hound Ring.For every completed survey form, Lentells will donate £1 to charity. The total will be split between the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and Children's Hospice South West.
