64th Brompton Regis Show and Gymkhana
The Brompton Regis Show - Remarkable
The outcome of the Show is remarkable. Despite the poor weather in the preceding days which forced the cancellation of the horse and pony events, the Show raised a provisional net surplus of £4,902 (only about £500 short of the 2015 record). This is a brilliant result arising from a record number of sponsors, from a tremendous effort by many helpers who made it all work in the absence of a Show Secretary, and from the generous spirit of all the people who spent money on the stalls, in the refreshment tent and at the dog show. The community is the collective beneficiary, of course, and the committee has agreed to make the sum of £3,341 available for grant awards. All village organisations have as usual been invited to submit bids for funding to be decided at the AGM.
The Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday November 22nd, at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. This is not just for the committee, but all helpers and other members of the community are very welcome.
A new Show Secretary is to be appointed at the AGM: as things stand I am glad to report that we have one declared candidate for this role, but up to the AGM it is open to anyone else who wishes to come forward with a nominator and seconder.
