With the 2018 show fast approaching news emerges of far reaching changes that will effect the 2019 event.
With over 100 years of history behind it the show now faces a critical period of re-organisation before the next year’s event can take place. After many years of service a number of the organising committee will be standing down.
Resultingly, it is imperitive that new volunteer committee members are found and appointed so that the necessary planning can take place for 2019. To this end an extra-ordinary committee meeting will be held at The Dragon Hotel, Montgomery on Thursday, 11th October 2018. Commencing at 7.30 pm guests will be welcomed and the meeting will commence at 8 pm.
If anyone in the Montgomery area feels they can give up time to help in the planning and preparation of next year’s show they should contact anyone on the existing committee and put their names forward. Contact telephone numbers for nearly all the committee members are listed on the “contacts and who’s who” page of this website. If you wish to e-mail a response indicating your willingness to participate please do so at email@example.com. Your details will be passed on and the committee looks forward to meeting you on 11th October.
Commenting on the forthcoming changes, Chairman, Chris Boundy says,
“some committee members have loyally worked for many years and now feel it’s time to stand down and bring in some fresh ideas. It is also important that we have more volunteers to help with the ever increasing workload of this growing and successful show. We hope the commnity will respond positively”.
