Voted the Best one day agricultural show by readers of the Farmers’ Guardian in 2012. Finalist in the Shropshire Tourism & Leisure Awards ‘Best Day Out’ category 2013.
A very successful Annual General Meeting was held on Monday 20 January 2014 where Michael Bradbury was elected Chairman for the coming three years supported by Mary Williams as Vice Chairman. Henry Yates was elected Vice President for the coming year. Richard Yates takes over the role of Sponsorship for the Show.
The Society has recently made a donation of £1,000 to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute for the benefit of flood stricken Somerset farmers. With many farmers having lost their fodder supplies and little prospect of conditions returning to normal for some considerable time, Chairman, Mike Bradbury, confirmed that as the Society had achieved a profit in 2013 the Main Organising Committee felt they wanted to help fellow farmers.
Planning is now well in hand for the 2014 Burwarton Show with many new features to look forward to. The catering service in the Members’ Pavilion will this year be provided by Ascari’s Catering from Hereford whilst the Ludlow Brewing Company will be providing the Members’ bar facilities.
The public catering facilities will be enhanced by the inclusion of three local providers, namely G&R Tudge from Richards Castle, Keysells Farm from Tenbury Wells and Mike & Sarah’s from Bridgnorth. Severn Valley Roasts will also be on site with their popular pig roast. These, together with other catering units will provide a wide variety of refreshments to suit all tastes.
