64th Brompton Regis Show and Gymkhana
Brompton Regis Show and Gymkhana AGM Summary
The AGM, held on November 23rd, was well attended, and it was great to see a number of relative newcomers to the village there.
The Treasurer (Bill Rees) reported a fantastic result from the 2017 Show with a surplus of £4092, just over £500 short of the record result from 2015. Given the need to cancel the horse show and gymkhana on the morning of the Show following a very inaccurate weather forecast and difficult conditions for setting up, the surplus was extraordinary. It included a record sponsorship figure of just over £2000. The Chairman thanked all who had worked so hard towards this success, and the committee were congratulated by other attendees on keeping the Show going without a Secretary.
After discussion the following grants were awarded by the committee, with all present having a chance to ask questions and comment:
Withiel Florey Church £700.00 New doors
Brompton Regis Church £1000.00 Churchyard maintenance
Brompton Regis Village Hall £700.00 New lighting system
Young Farmers £500.00 Drama activities
Brompton Regis Village Shop £240.00 New equipment
Millennium Green £375.00 Mowing costs
Village Lift Scheme £50.00 New insurance requirements
