The Show at Brockhampton
Saturday 25th August 2018
As I write this letter the news is all about Brexit, Russians (or someone) poisoning people (again) on British soil, excessive plastic usage blighting our seas and lives, and SNOW. In fact, a whole barrel of misery to darken the days.
So, to give you something to look forward to, your Show committee is determined that the 25th August will be a day full of fun and games and, hopefully, glorious sunshine as we are planning a Caribbean theme.
Each year we are delighted to welcome local, regular and new people (and your dogs), to the showground and hope that we are providing enough variety to encourage everyone to participate and enjoy their time at the Show. Feedback is always welcome, so that we can continue to improve for the future. My email address is below.
The Show is a not-for-profit event and any surplus that is made is distributed among the 3 Parishes. Last year funds were shared between Sevenhampton Church (£800), Rhodes Hall
(£540) and Sevenhampton Parish Council (£400).
Many people support us by becoming fully paid-up ‘Friends of the Show’ and receive the extra benefits that Friends enjoy as explained on the enrolment form.
I hope that I can encourage you to support us and become Friends, and if you are comfortable with on-line banking it would be greatly appreciated if you could make your payment by
electronic bank transfer. Better still, we would love you to become regular Friends of the Show (and we sincerely hope you do) in which case would you be kind enough to consider setting up a standing order, payable on 1st June each year. This would be of tremendous help to the committee.
As well as your financial contribution we would also be very grateful for your hands-on general support in the pre-Show preparation and setting up and/or post-Show taking down, plus help on the day itself, and your donations for stalls, raffles, auction etc. There is more information on the membership application form.
We look forward to receiving your membership applications and once again welcoming everybody to the Show in August.
