As we were unable to hold an AGM this year because of the Covid restrictions please find below report from the Show Secretary.
So we begin a New Year.
After the challenges and sadness of 2020 we were hopeful that after what we all knew would be a tough beginning, 2021 would gradually improve.
Unfortunately as the pandemic rages across the world, particularly brutally in the UK, the uncertainties remain.
It’s difficult to say at this point in time what that means for the summer shows and festivals, including our own much loved village show.
Planning normally begins in January but at this point in time there is not sufficient clarity to make a decision or commitment.
There has been some positivity. The long periods of lockdown have reawakened our love of the countryside and the natural world and there has been a resurgence in home grown, home baking and home crafting. All things which we showcase in our country shows.
Our finances are healthy and Treasurer, Rick Warburton, has produced figures for 2020 although there was little activity.
The one thing we are sure of is that we will need more and younger members of our community involved to get the Show up and running again.
To get in touch contact us either via the website or call Sam 07398058899 or June 828077.
