Winterton Agricultural Society AGM 2017

Recently the Agricultural Society held it's Annual General Meeting. During the evening the Chairman, Nigel Ogg, reported that the annual show had been a great success with good weather and plenty of attractions across the two days which gave something to entertain all ages. Nigel also expressed his gratitude to all the wives and partners of the committee members, and to the many friends, that gladly give their time and efforts in order to make the show the huge success that it is.

During the meeting a new President was elected. The new president of the Winterton Agricultural Society is now Don Johnson. Paul Lovett has also taken up the role of Vice Chairman. The committee feel both of these appointments will mean that the good work of the society will continue to improve.

The Grand Bonfire was again a hugely popular event with an evening full of fun and fireworks. Nigel Ogg also gave a special thanks to the bonfire team for the preparations of the ground before the event and the signage around the town. The additional signs meant that traffic problems were kept to a minimum around the town and that the bonfire went ahead safely.

Following the recent passing of Fran Fletcher, who played a huge part within both the community and the agricultural show, the committee decided to make a donation to the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance so that they can continue with their fantastic work within the local area. In addition, the bonfire committee made a donation to the Winterton & District Lions in order to aide them in the good work that they complete within the community.

The committee look forward to arranging the agricultural show for 2018, with both traditional and new events taking place. More details about the show will be avilable soon.
