TOCKWITH SHOW IS COMING HOME!

After two years of Covid-enforced absence plans are now beginning for next year’s – and the 75th – Tockwith and District Agricultural Show.

The Directors met this week and have decided that we should press ahead with the preparation for next year’s show – on Sunday August 7th 2022…and hopefully that we will be able to stage our annual bonfire and fireworks night for the community on Friday November 5th this year.

The plans will be discussed – and subject to approval – by the full committee next Wednesday (September 15th) at the Forge in the Spotted Ox in Tockwith, and we would like to offer an open invitation to anyone who is interested in supporting and helping the show – however large or small a part that might be.

We do have some specific vacancies for section stewards, and we are planning to double-up each one so that no one is operating on their own. They include: Trade, Catering, Classic Cars, Produce & Preserves, Rural Crafts, Horticultural, the Main Ring as well as a Deputy for the Friends of the Show.

We will explain what each role involves at Wednesday’s meeting, but if you have any initial interest in any of those vacancies (without any obligation to follow that through) it would be really helpful if you could contact our acting Secretary Chris Lightley (chris@dixoncottage.co.uk) before the meeting to let him know.

To give everyone an opportunity to meet other volunteers and committee members, we are meeting at 7pm in the Forge with a chance to grab a drink and have a chat before the meeting starts at 7.30. Anyone is welcome to attend the meeting (although only Committee members will be able to vote on any of the proposals).

Whether you are interested in being on the committee, helping prepare the show field,  looking after car-parking or simply helping with leaflet drops, then please do come along on Wednesday.

Tockwith Show has been part of this community since 1946. We regularly attract thousands of visitors to the show making it one of the largest agricultural shows in the region. We are determined to make sure it continues to go from strength to strength and it would be great to have you on board.

Look forward to meeting you next Wednesday – September 15th,  7pm.

The Directors / Trustees of Tockwith Show.

Tockwith and District Show Society was founded in 1945. It’s aim was to raise money for the Red Cross to support the personnel at RAF Marston Moor. The 1st Show in 1946 only had 12 helpers but still created a surplus of £58.

Over the years it has progressed from being a purely Horticultural Show to becoming a full Agricultural and Horticultural Show. The attendance in 2007 was estimated to be more than 11,000. This makes it one of the largest one day community events in the area.

The Show Society primarily exists to promote and advance for the benefit and education of the public the practice of agriculture, horticulture, livestock breeding and arts and crafts.
