Always wanted to be Vice President? Read on for how you can be………..
It is the 127th Sturton and Stow Agricultural and Horticultural Show on 4th October. The show is one of the oldest one day events in England and we believe one of the best!
It costs a lot of money to put the show on: when I was treasurer hire of rooms was almost £300, insurance £400, prize money and prize cards £450, printing of schedules and badges £350. The committee has also undertaken a programme of replacing the old rickety and dangerous wooden tables used to display the exhibits and these cost £60 each.
We have been fortunate over the years with local businesses being kind enough to sponsor prize money for the different classes in the show and we have had generous donations for the purchase of equipment. Another way of raising the money necessary to help run the show is our Vice Presidents. Vice Presidents pay £3.00 each a year or £5.00 a couple living at the same address.
Would you like to become a Vice President of the 127th Show? Badges, this year ‘Lilac’ will be distributed with the schedules in August/September and the badge gets you into the show on Show Day; your name will appear in the 128th Show Schedule.
