The Hawarden A&P Association welcomes you to our 112th show for 2018.
We also welcome all our Exhibitors and participants and trust they have a successful and enjoyable day.
This year’s show theme is ‘Irrigation to Grow Our Community’.
As we approach an important stage in the forthcoming irrigation scheme it is important that we look towards the future. We will have the ability and opportunity to improve the economics of our farming or business practices, to help minimise the impact of the environment with the long term goal of being more sustainable.
We have invited Ruud Kleinpaste as our Guest Speaker for the Our Fare area. His knowledge of bugs and plants will be a major drawcard for our show.
Thank you to all our sponsors especially our Principal Sponsor Heartland Bank and our Premium Sponsor Airpark Canterbury. We appreciate the support we have received from our Trade Space section and all those who have provided gift lambs.
Our judges, especially those who have travelled a long distance, the Marshals, Stewards and Volunteers are an important part of the Show and we value their input.
The new people involved in the Show for the first time ensures this event continues annually.
Thank you to our Secretary Amanda Bowes for her enthusiasm and dedication, our Executive Committee of Iain and Jac Wright, Tom and Anne Costello for their input to ensure the success of the day.
Our free Community BBQ will again take place in Our Fare area from 5pm and this highlight of the day brings everyone together to enjoy the entertainment provided.
