KINGTON SHOW & AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY COMMITTEE

Kington Show is run by volunteers, with a dedicated team who give up their valuable time to make the show a success year after year.  The Society is divided into many committees, each of them specialising in their departments.  We have a Horticultural & Domestic section, a Dog Show section, a Livestock and Horse section, a Trade Stand section and Traffic and Parking section to name but a few!
The show is very reliant on not only committee members, but also local people and businesses who help out during the build up to the show and on show day itself, with many 'unsung heroes' too numerous to mention, but, without which the show could not take place.
If you are interested in joining the committee, please contact Wendy Smith, general secretary on 01544 340598, or if you have an hour or two to volunteer your skills during the build week prior to the show or on show day itself.

Last year, £500 was awarded to Ben Hewitt from Bearwood, near Leominster to help him to continue with improving his bee colony.  Ben reported recently to let the Show Society know that he has now joined the Herefordshire Beekeepers Association and has enrolled on a beginners course, attending weekly.  He is in the process of buying three 'National' hives, a bee-suit and other essential equipment such as smokers and hive tools.  A further £500 was awarded to Ellie Owens from Shobdon, enabling her to travel to New Zealand working at a variety of farms.
