As always, we invite all members of the farming community to take part in the Art, Craft and Culinary skills classes and would particularly like to encourage our young farming families to make entries into the children’s section where their participation gives them a valuable opportunity to truly be part of the Society’s activities. We hope that this will then encourage them to be part of the event long into the future
It is your participation with the entries on the day that create the Society’s traditions and make the event so successful.
